AK pistol conversion to SBR – hell of a bargain

Saw the new AK ‘pistol’ from IO Inc. the other day, and I’m seriously thinking about registering it as a SBR, and then adding a folding buttstock to it when I get the tax stamp back.  Should be a lot cheaper than buying one of the Arsenal SBR’s that cost about $1800 (not including the $200 NFA tax stamp), though those are pretty sweet.

The math:

IO Hellpup –                                  $395

NFA tax stamp –                            $200

Ace side-folding buttstock for AK – $165

Total –                                          $760or about $1240 less than the Arsenal SBR.

Once again, that appeals to my ‘inner Julius’ (translation – cheap bastard).

IO – “Hellpup”

Here’s a pic of the ACE side-folding stock for the AK platform:

  1. What modifications did you have to make to the receiver for this conversion? It looks great.

    • Unfortunately not my blaster. The side folder is an Ace unit. They have an adapter for a standard AK receiver that will turn it into a side folder. Depending on the receiver it may be a simple job or something more involved… There seems to be a fair bit of variation out there.

  2. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after checking through some
    of the post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow,
    I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking
    back frequently!
