SHOT Show 2023 Day 3: Midwest Industries Alpha Series AK Furniture

Midwest Industries has just unveiled its new line of Alpha Series AK furniture at SHOT Show 2023.

If you’ve paid any attention to the AK community recently, you’ll know that there are a lot of Americans who want to trick their guns out with Zenitco furniture. The company’s products are generally accepted to be the best way to turn an AK into a 21st-century fighting rifle and are the go-to option for Russian special forces groups and other AK-using operators around the globe. Even when the Russian-made furniture was being imported into the U.S., it was quite expensive. After it stopped coming in due to recent world events, many were willing to pay ludicrous prices to get their hands on some. Some of this was due to the desire for authenticity, and some was due to a lack of anything else comparable existing in the AK furniture market. Looking to domestically produce an alternative to fill this void, Midwest Industries has just released the Alpha Series.

An AK fitted with the Alpha Series furniture. This model features the 10-inch handguard and has its stock in the collapsed position.

The Midwest Industries Alpha Series lineup includes two handguards, a folding stock, two optics mounts, a hinged dust cover and a light/laser mount. The handguards have M-LOK slots and are available in either 6- or 10-inch lengths (MSRPs are $199.95 and $229.95, respectively). The optics mounts are available with either a Picatinny rail or with an Aimpoint T2-pattern red dot mount, and they share an MSRP of $169.95. The hinged dust cover also features a Picatinny rail for optics, and the hinge ensures that there will be no zero shift (MSRP is $254.95). The light and laser mount features rails on both sides, can be installed on barrels between .580- and .700-inches in diameter and has an MSRP of $69.95.


The Midwest Industries Alpha Series Folding Stock will likely be the most popular accessory in the lineup. It can be attached to any firearm with a 1913 rail adaptor, not just AKs, and it can be configured for either right- or left-side folding. It also features an adjustable length of pull, adjustable cheek riser height and three QD sling attachment points. MSRP is $289.95.

This AK is fitted with the Alpha Series 6-inch handguard and has its stock extended.
