how did you secure it to the receiver? Yugos generally have a long ass bolt. if i remember right the tapco stock is pretty hollow doesnt seem like that would hold good if you ran the bolt thru the stock.

Is that a Zastava PAP? It looks to have a strange angle cut rear receiver.

I drilled out the main part of the stock, which is about 1 3/4 of inch thick, this gave me about a perfect setup to a 2 in bolt, metric num 8. It took me awhile to figure it all out but I think it turned out awesome. After I get the grip I want I will play with either the scope mount shown or the new red dot i picked up. Either way its so nice to have the new collapsible stock since i have shorter arms.

This is about the best looking PAP stock conversion I have seen. He used a modified Yugo M76 stock. Pic from another site. The M76 pistol grip is one I sold to him.

It is not my rifle. This fellow added some accessories. An optics rail can be added to virtually any AK rifle. The stock is a modified Yugo m76 DMR rifle stock.

im planning on going the same way except with a yugo receiver block and a collapsible folding ace stock, i really like the picture of the wood furniture can you buy the wood stock with the angled cut receiver or did you make that yourself, and also does your stock picatinny wobble a little with the red dot on your Pap?

The modified PAP (Micro-76?) would definitely benefit from a M-76 muzzlebreak.

Nice job with the Tapco stock. It's good to see that people are finding different ways to convert these. I used the ace yugo m70 receiver block with the collapsible stock on mine.

The Zastava imported yugos had side rails. Havent seen a PAP rifle so im not sure if its the same. The yugo's with side rails use there own ZRAK mounts that dont fit Drags or AK's.

Here a pic of the differace in the side rails.

That Zastava looks good Pap. Yours is similar to what I want to do with mine. These Zastava's are great shooting guns. I might eventually send mine to The AK expert, Jim Fuller. I think it would be awesome to have him go through one and have it polished up and dialed in. Anyways that is just me dreaming.

I have read it does take a lot to alter the original design to look like a traditional AK, but what all would it require to only change it from single stack, to double stack? I actually kind of like the stock that somes with it.

Obviously I dont shoot that much, Guns without laser pointers on them will not shoot, I totally fogot. how dumb of me.

I shoot constantly and I don't understand the "laser at the range" deal. Regardless, nice looking rifle. You did a good job with it, I like the Acog.

I found pics of my PAP on an image search! Anyway, I think I can answer a few questions.

The hand guards are original to the rifle. The stock is an M76 stock. I recut the mating end so it would fit the PAP. It took me about an hour with the Dremel. The mounting bolt sticks through the back of the receiver about a half inch or so, but its fine.

The optic rail is original to the rifle. It's the only example of a standard AK optic rail on a Yugo I've seen.

PAP-rail-2 by PTGT_Neon, on Flickr

Modifications include opening the mag well, M70 bolt, threading the barrel and installing a detent. The cleaning rod is romanian. The sling is Yugo SKS. And AKBlue sold me the grip that's just perfect!

The trigger is all Yugo and is super smooth!

Have any of you seen the new sporters on Zastavas website? They look like 223 and 308 versions of the M76.

The Yugoslavian Zastava factory developed a line of .223 and .308 rifles for export to the US many years ago, before all the first initial bans, well over ten years ago. I haven't viewed their web site of late, however, they are probably working feverishly on importable versions in .223 and .308, as well as pistol versions, as the Bulgarians have done, for import into the US. The Zastava PAP and the other products from Zaztava are in my humble opinion just fantastic value's in the AK world as we presently know it. Let's hopw they are able to import more of their products!

Thanks to this thread for part of the inspiration on my Zastava PAP mod's.

I was able to pretty much finish up my Zastava PAP conversion.
Changed it to accept high-cap mags, M72 Bolt, UTG Quadrail, Hogue Grip, Tapco G2 Trigger Group, M4 folding and collapsible stock, put on a Magpul AFG2 fore grip, and a bi-pod grip. Then I also threaded the barrel and installed a CNC Warrior Flash suppressor and the Detent spring in the front sight.
The Bushnell TRS-25 Red dot just came in today so hopefully can get to the range this weekend. Also going to installed a side mount rail so if i want to use side mount optics I have that option as well.
I did all the work myself and it was a great experience to be able to transform the rifle to how I wanted it.

I would also be interested in the details of the conversion. If you could start a "how to" thread or something it would be much appreciated. And do you think it could be done with a tapco fixed stock?

Here is what I did for making the adapter, I purchased the UTG Stock combo kit here
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...00_i00_details
I cut the first "step" off of the front of the adapter, then shaped the remaining piece that stuck out to fit in the back of the Zastava receiver.
Once i had that cut and shaped to fit i then drilled a hole through the adapter to be able to bolt it to the receiver. When you drill the hole it will not be on center of the adapter and it may be at a slight angle. I had to grind down the inside for the bolt to have a little room. The bolt is an M8 fine thread bolt.
Once i got everything bolted on it was time to deal with the slant cut in the receiver. I knew i had to fill the gap with something. I found a product at walmart for $4 called QuikSteel. Its a putty that you tear off what you need and kneed it between your fingers till the color is uniform. I then filled in the gaps on the sides and bottom of the receiver. within 5 min its was almost set and after 15 min it was hard. I let it sit for about an hour then sanded it to help smooth it out.
One trick to do with the QuikSteel is to put a coating of oil on the rear receiver metal pieces so it does not stick. You only want it to stick to the plastic adapter.
I then removed the adapter and hand sanded it to be even smoother. I then painted it with some flat black primer.
Ive included some pics. Hopefully my directions make sense lol It may not be the prettiest thing but it does the job.

The Hogue grip is definitely worth every penny spent on it. Not that they are expensive. I paid $18.99 for mine.

The M72 bolt was a straight drop in. I did not have to change out anything on the piston or anything else for the bolt. I have over 200rds on the setup without issue.
