I got this PSL and discovered the all-too-short stock needed replacing. The trigger is now a TAPCO G-2 unit, and it has an AK internal Pin Lock Plate. I found a 3-rail forend for it too.

However, the scope provided is a tad too far 'up' in angle, and can't be adjusted down far enough to use. At 280 meters the bullet drop hits the bottom of the view, even with the mount screws loosened and the scope pushed hard forward before tightening the base... I could fiddle with the screw holes a tad and get it rotated forward a few more mm, but haven't done it yet.
Anyone else have this set-back?

I dont have that problem but I'm a lefty so 9 times out of 10 I have to adjust myself to fit the rifle. On this one however it was fine for me. What you can do is order a POSP scope from Kalinka or soe one who sells them. They sit lower. The one I have almost touches the rear sights. I'll post pics if you want to see when I get the rifle back from getting some adjustments.

Where did you find that lower Handguard?

It's a Brugger&Thomet unit. Got it from "Kiesler". They only sell to Military & Police, ... but I am a retired soldier so I can get stuff from them. The general public can not. But... UTG sells B&G stuff, just not the PSL 3-rail. They might be able to get it for you.

I'm going after a 'low' AK mount and a Spepherd scope for this PSL. I'll share news once I get it all together and go shoot a few.

Good shooting!

The scopes for the PSLs were fitted to the firearms before being shipped out. Same with the Dragunov & the Iraqi clone. This is true for all of them. That is why the scopes & riffles tend to be numbered the same.
I assume yours may be made from a kit (like most sold in the states are) that just got some random scope.
"Fiddle" with the screw holes. or research how they originally fitted them to the riffles.

Thanks for the link. Nice woodwork, those guys. Too bad I've got my polystock already on.

The scope was the only thing not serial numbered the same. It was fresh from the factory and I was the first to open the box. It's not a kit (as far as I know) But the scope was obviously NOT for this rifle. But hey, NO PROBLEM!! :devil:
I'm getting a Kalinka scope base and putting a target ranging scope from Nightforce on it.
Yeah, I tripled the cost of the shooter with accessories. :dollar: :dollar: :dollar:

You can get a cheek pad for that choate stock, that would raise you up closer to the scope, I would think. I've had the same issue with the Choate stock on my scoped .308.
Boy, you better put that beer back in the can where it was born.

Awesome link to that fine wood work! I was going to program my CNC router at work to carve out a longer PSL stock, but it will be much easier to wait till ironwood gets theirs ready! here's a quick peek at the lengthened stock with a higher check pad that I programed in vector based software:
