A friend of mine has a Norinco AK-47 with no stocks. I know nothing about these beasts. What would it cost him for a decent set?
Treat me good, I'll treat you better. Treat me bad, I'll treat you worse.
Couple of hundred at most if cost conscious, several hundred if not. I have an old wood set available I took off my Mak-90. The old thumb hole model. Here's a pic of my new set up:
Her's a pic of the wood I have:
A lot of folks hate the MAK-90 set up like this.........
There's a thread recently where I posted a lot of links on AK parts. He needs to think about 922 too.
The MAK-90 is a post ban AK ("Modified", hence MAK to meet ban criteria, hence the fullstock with the thumb hole). Norinco made several AK's, but generally are considered middle to top quality, with pretty good triggers.
I've added some links to help identify the AK, model, possibly factory, etc.
Also important is whether it is a milled receiver or stamped, and whether it has a straight cut or angle cut receiver.
Here are some links:

Have fun! There are a lot of other Norinco's floating around too - and a lot of info available

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
