I just finished up a project for another forum member, that was as much an experiment as trying to help another member out. For those of you with Saiga .308 Ver. 21's with factory furniture, you know going scoped requires a "chin" weld versus a "cheek" weld. Below is an idea that started in my head and I wanted to see if it would be as simple as I thought it would be. I started off with some VEPR furniture which can be modified to fit the Ver. 21 with little effort. The idea was to modify this stock to have an integrated adjustable comb. This could be done with any solid butt stock with any rifle. This is going to be pic heavy and will likely be broken down into several posts. First..Here are the finished pics: Required materials / tools: band saw, drill press, (or jigsaw and drill with very steady hands), Dremel, 1/4" SS rod, painters tape, and epoxy. Start by transposing any inletting inside the buttstock to the out side so the cheek rest cut out will not interfere with any inletting: Mark out the location, shape, and length of the cheek rest. Also mark out the location of the posts perpendicular with the straight edge mark from the inletting crossing both the stock portion and the cheek rest portion. This will help you line them up when drilling for the posts. The VEPR stocks are extremely difficult to "level" when making cuts or placing in a vice due to the fact there are very few flat surfaces. I used a wood jig to screw into the factory buttstock screw holes to give me a perfectly leveled work piece when cutting out the cheek riser portion on the bandsaw. Next post will cover drilling the holes for the adjustable hardware and rods.
TheJoe90 posted a topic in Other AK RiflesHowdy yall Problem: Trying to improve cheek weld on Polish Underfolder with red dot. Samson riser doesnt fit... What next? Background: My beautiful Polish AK, utilizing a NoDak receiver and a Primary Arms red dot is amazing! I just would like a better cheek weld for it. I purchased the Samson riser, incredibly excited to use it, and it didn't fit. This weapon is easily my favorite rifle. Solution 1: Identify and purchase a second underfolder stock that will be more compatible with this riser. Determine if new underfolder will fit. Solution 2: Price out a direct replacement for my current stock so that if it were to be damaged beyond use during modification it can be replaced. Solution 3: Return it for a refund, suck it up, and deal. Close: Looking for input from those who have experience, thank you for your time.
