My Romanian SAR has the wood furniture. When I shoulder it I have to "turtle" my head down quite a bit for the iron sights. If I bring the gun to my eyes instead, the bottom of the buttstock is off my shoulder. I don't experience this with my ARs. Anyone else get this? Seems like the back end of the stock should be a little longer. from top to bottom.

Try either a longer buttstock, Bulgarian triangle stock with buttpad, or instead of turtling your head, lean it forward and look up.

Is this the triangle stock?

www.atlanticfirearms.com/rifles/ak47/AKKRINKOV.jpg

Where could one procure that?

Thanks for the help.

I have found that the Romanian stocks are poorly designed for proper sight alignment ...

I switched to Russian and Polish wood and have no problems now ...

That's it. There's an American repro. non-folder that mounts to the standard trunnion, and it'll take a rubber pad:

Hmmm seems everything is out of stock there.

Guess I'll have to do some searching.

I have one of those on the way (hopefully), I'm really not a fan either of any of the fixed stocks for AKs, kind of uncomfortable on the cheek.

K-Var has had like ZERO stock for a long time. Are they even still in business?

Ok What about this? "1.25 Longer"

www.k-var.com/shop/product.php?productid=16191&cat=0&page=4

Would this fit a Romanian SAR? I didn't want to go synthetic but if it meant a better feel when shooting I would do it.

Yes that will fit a SAR. I have that set on my SAR-2 and the extra length is nice. I've got an OD set for my SAR-1 but have not installed it yet.

Where did you find one ???

Ok in the search to make my SAR more naturally pointable for myself I came across this buttstock:

www.blackjackbuffers.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=67&products_id=413

I know this may PO some who view this as sacrilage to an AK...I'll apologize. I just want the gun to feel right. The stock comes in 3 different lengths. Anyone have this set-up on their AK?

No, that is acceptable. Just don't put a frigging AR stock on it.

If you are looking for a US made triangle nonfolder, do a search on GunBroker.com for "krinkov". That is where I got mine.

Wow I've never checked that Gunbroker.com out. Man it rules!

Thanks for the assist.
