Stock differences between Hakim and Ljungman

How different is the stock (besides handguard and wood choice) between those cousins?

Never tried dropping one into the other, but looks like it would. The front end is completely different. The Hakim hand guard is longer, cut for a different rear sight, a different shape because of the gas adjust and attaches differently. Although, the bayonet lug ends up in the same spot so the bayonets can swap...YMMV though.

Laying them bottom up and side by side, the trigger guards don't line up, but appear to be the same length, and the screw holes appear larger on the Hakim. That might be because of those cups on the Ljungman. They should swap though. Not sure if the cross screw is in the same place.

The barrel looks thicker on the Hakim, so the channel might need a little shaving on the Ljungman.

Thank goodness mags are interchangeable.

I have 2 of 1 and one of the other. I will check it out. I am guessing the Ljungman is a bit slimmer in spots.
