The Polish Underfolder AK-47 is Poland's take on the paratrooper style AK. The under-folders are meant to tuck up into a small space so that the paratroopers can jump and land without injuring themselves, others, or the weapon, it then folds into a full size AK-47 with a thin frame stock. It's most comparable to the Yugo Underfolder with a few specific differences. The polish underfolder has a chrome lined barrel and this is helpful because most 7.62x39mm ammo is Russian made and most Russian made ammo is corrosive, especially the surplus stuff. The Polish underfolder is said to have a better "fit" meaning the peices fit together better, but it also has a thinner receiver. The Yugo M70 also has a built in rpg launcher feature. Both take the 30 round mags by default, both have the extreme reliability afforded to them by the Russian AK design. The polish tends to be around $100 more than the Yugo M70, not sure why maybe the chrome lined barrel.
The Polish Underfolders metal stock is not the most pleasant thing in the world to fire but one "gets used to it" and for the coolness factor you really can't beat the ability to fold the stock under and turn the AK in a Pseudo AK Pistol. In "pistol" mode of course the Polish Underfolder's accuracy is greatly diminished as there is no real way to aim like you would with an extended stock.
All in all the Polish Underfolder is a really fun gun that is reliable, and better built than the Wasr-10s. The one we purchased was Century arms and of course a semi automatic. We may get some synthetic "furniture" to replace the wood grips, not sure yet. One thing is certain however, we'll have a good time going all "red dawn" on some targets, soda bottles, and watermelons. Great gun, post your review, comments, add your photos. Thanks for reading!
