I was wondering, how much weight does swapping out the wood furniture for plastic save?  I was thinking of ditching the tree trunks for something more sleek, but I can't justify any purchase just based on looks alone!

I don't have exact figures- but plastic is SIGNIFICANTLY lighter, especialy on heavier AKs like Siaga conversions.  I just removed some RUSSIAN wood from a Siaga conversion & replaced it with plastic for this very reason.

Don't worry - the Russian Wood will find a home on a lighter rifle :)
