Matt over at ironwood designs asked these questions.  I need to know what you experts think should be done with my romanian SAR 1. I honestly have no idea what he is asking. Matt is doing the butt stock, Pistol grip, and forends.  Chris at Ak-103 will be finishing the rifle with slant break, red star FGC, and new powder coat etc. so, I want the stock to turn out great. Here is Matts question:

Your butt stock will be inletted tomorrow. I have a question for you.
How did you want the butt stock set up? I did not see any specs listed
in your Pay Pal order or in any of your previous messages.
Do you want it with the recoil pad, or cut for a butt plate? Lightening cuts
or not?  Take a look at the AK page on my site and let me know before tomorrow.

If you want a stock which is properly suited to the AKM-type SAR1 then you want one without lightening cuts, but you do want it cut for a buttplate.  

Bottom or side mounted sling swivel depending upon what you like, as both were used on AKM stocks.  

Lightening cuts, while pretty sweet looking, are AK-74 and later developements.

JeepCreep, those look great! What sort of stain did you use? Color and manufacture?

Now that is one dam fine looking AKS-74! I love the Russian wood/metal side folder look.
