I've mounted a scope on my SAR2 and now find the stock on the rifle feeling somewhat too short. Who makes and sells some kind of extension for these AK stocks. Hopefully, something not too expensive. I'm thinking I could use an extra 2- 3" of length to make my shooting more comfortable.

The replacement U.S made stocks can be had in "NATO" length -meaning, about 2" longer than standard. K-Var has them.

BTW, one of the laminated Maadi wood stocks, the "thumbhole" -can be cut to also be standard in appearance...but longer.

I'm about 6'4" and find even a Nato length a wee bit short so I add one of those cheapo rubber stock extenders to that. There are many who teach that the AK is short and keep the stock short! Get used to it. I like it extended though.

Did you get the stock extension from TAPCO? I've been wondering if anybody around here has and what their impression of it was.

THIS thing:

TAPCO extension works just fine for me on the Romanian AK47 and 74.

they worked fine on an SKS I had, you need to get longer screws to go with it.

They have worked fine on my SKS guns, as well.

If I recall right, the stock screws work...the holes are deep. It mounts OVER the existing metal butt plate.

The screw on Butt pads actually work very well.
I've seen them in 1" and 2" sizes.
There is also a slip on recoil pad for the AK stock.

I picked one up for my Younger boys and the wife.
they are a bit recoil sensitive.

The Ak's stock isnt really short, it has the same exact LOP as the M16/M16A1, and most other military rifles.

When you add a scope, and especially the rear mounted variety, your changing the rifles handling and shooting characteristics. You can readily see this in the difference between older hunting rifles that used iron sights, a steel butt plate and shorter LOP stock and the rifles since scopes have been popular. Most hunting rifles these days have stocks that are to long and often a recoil pad on them to boot. They work well and are comfortable from a bench, but generally suck when trying to shoot from field positions.

If you like the AK and want to take advantage of a scope or optic, and want to retain its natural shootability, using an Ultimak rail with a red dot or scout type scope will give you better results.

A proper setup wont be cheap though.

I'm six-two and like Warsaw stocks just fine, prefer A-1 length AR stocks as well. Since new condition A-1's are so hard to obtain these days, I don't know what I'm gonna use on my next AR. As for the bolt on AK extensions, they do work but are dog butt ugly.

I like the A1 stocks too. Northridge had M16 and M16A1 furniture sets (stock, triangular handguards, and grip) that were in good shape for around $20. I've picked up a number of them now and while they werent new, they usually cleaned up pretty good. A coat of Brownell's Aluma Hyde II, and they look brand new.



Looks like the price doubled, they used to be $20.
