Gabe... I like the dehorm idea.
Also a few misc. parts that might make your AK experience more positive but without changing too much of the original configuartion.
Kreb makes a great rear sight.
XS makes a great front sight
Kreb or Blackjack makes a good safety that has a enhanced latch that can allow you to use your strong side thumb to operate the safety.
Slings is a great idea, a little different from Gabe.. I love my Blue force gear UDC single point sling.
