Since everyone's just saying not to do it without telling you why, and without knowing if you have the skills/tooling to do it, I'll be fair and at least run the process down:

Remove the underfolding stock, drill out the trunnion rivets, weld up all the holes, slant cut the back of the receiver, cut all new holes for the sidefolding mechanism and trunnion, rivet in sidefolding trunnion.

Grind/drill all front trunnion rivets, remove front trunnion, weld additional material on bottom of front trunnion to drill for front stock latch pivot pin, press barrel pin and barrel out of front trunnion, re-rivet back into receiver, drill front latch pin hole, drill/mill front latch hole in side of receiver, install front latch, reinstall barrel, reinstall barrel pin.

Install stock, hope you didn't **** anything up and have to do it all over again.


If you're feeling froggy, go for it. Be sure and post pics.


(Mario at Piece of History Firearms can certainly accomplish this for you, and it will look ****ing factory as ****. Don't expect it to be cheap....but it WILL be done right, without even the remotest possibility of any corners being cut. Troy at InRange may also be able to help you out, and is unbelievably good as well. I don't know how long either will take or what their backlog is at the moment)

Nothing special, it's a WASR 10/63 UF. How would one prove that it's been demilled?

If you're not too keen on the cheek weld, try wrapping it with some paracord. The underfolder may not have the best ergos, but it sure is sexy

Definitely helps a bit, true enough.

I'm just not a big fan of UFs but I did pick up a few extra 7.62 receivers in case I decide to have one built to round out a collection.
