The 47 is a full stock type 56 w both original plum Bakelite furniture and wood furniture. Since most people shoot 556 these days, it is initially a challenge w the larger round. It is also a somewhat ďthumpyĒ recoil gun, in that itís not a smooth shooting gun. However once you get the trigger down you can shoot it accurately in 2,3 rnd bursts.
The 74 is a 56 rechambered to 5.45, on a Bulgarian parts kit to a AKS-74U (Krinkov). Itís almost like shooting a full auto 22. Incredibly smooth and very controllable. I switched out the hand guard so I could have a rail and put a trijicon mro on it. To me itís as easy as running a MP5 but in a rifle round. Also when folded, it fits easily into a backpack.
Two entirely different rifles. One is a classic, the other a modern updated version of the original. Which one to buy. If you like shooting the classic .30 guns like G3,FAL, etc, the 47. If you are more comfortable w M16 and .5Ė rnds, then the 74.
Parts, mags ammo etc are still easily available for both
If you get a 47, absolutely do not get an underfolder. Yup, they look cool, but they will beat you to death. I was fortunate enough to shoot one before I decided to add AKís to my collection, so I avoided that mistake.
