Pistol grips serve for convenience of submachine gun holding and its action. The earliest AK issues had wooden pistol grips consisting of two halves. These grips pistol had the increased angle of slope and the form was very similar to the form of the handle of German pistol Parabellum P-08. The grip was fastened to the basis which in turn was attached to a receiver with the help of two rivets. The grip was very convenient and ergonomic, but it had a lack: if rivets were loosened, there was a gap of the core which could not be eliminated in field conditions. At a later date the grip was completely remade.
