Default Rear trunnion for ak-47

Where can I buy a rear trunnion for a ak-47 at? I've been looking on the internet and can't seem to find one.

Global now has an American made one. Got one on order, but haven't seen it yet.

JoeKen has US made rear trunions and they're cheaper than Global.
by the way Global is temporarily out of stock.

And you think Joeken is going to get them to you any faster? If you're lucky, you'll get your parts quickly. If not, you WILL be charged up front and it may take weeks or even months to get your parts. When you call to ask about the status of your order, you WILL be told that the parts are due the next week regardless if they are or not. Joeken is hit or miss on service. Some have gotten good service, some have not. There are more complaints about bad service than good, so proceed at your own risk.

Here's the BBB report for JoeKen:
http://www.phoenix.bbb.org/commonrep...018&national=Y



Tantal may be able to supply you with AK47 or AK74 stock tangs. The 47 tangs work well with some scope rails and poorly with others. When using the 47 tang with a rail, you may need to file or mill clearance for the trigger pivot pin and for the center support rivet. I have no idea what Tantal's prices are, but he should be able to get you ANY part if you are willing to pay for it. Stock tangs are pretty common, so the price shouldn't be too high.

K-Var has stock tangs in stock. K-Var has them cheaper. If you are a K-Var member you get an additional discount if you order from the website.

If anyone says anything about the U.S. made stock tang counting as a U.S. made part for 922(r) compliance, include a link to BATFE approval letter. All the BATFE descriptions refer to the "trunnion" as the block that holds the barrel, not the stock tang.

here's one link:

So, a US made part isn't a US made part?

No, US parts are US, it's just that some parts aren "parts". If you don't know (and you probably do), the RKBA and Legal Forum has the text of the law and a discussion. There are only 16 parts to an AK, no matter what comes in your parts kit.

Remember also that any parts YOU make are "US parts" also. Especially on the AMD-63 and -65, the wooden grips look like they're cut out of a flat board and had the edges rounded. So you could get a piece of 3/4" or 1" hardwood and cut your own grips. Even if you can't count the front one, you get 1 more part that way. I'm going to try making an entire set of furniture for a Saiga conversion out of cabinet-grade plywood.

It's a USA made part, it's just not a countable USA made part
