not the best job but anyone that has never done this.....beware. there is a lot of shaving and filing of the stock so much that you almost think it's going to be hopeless. a lot of trial and error and loads of patience!! here is a pic...

i used the receiver block from DPH Arms. it requires a lot filing and grinding to get it to match up with the slant cut, once you accomplish that then comes the stock. that's when things get pretty testy on your patience. imagine paying 50.00 plus bucks on a kvar stock then start cutting the shit out of it. took a while to complete had to walk away a few times to get my train of thought back.

you have to cut a lot of plastic off of the mounting end of the kvar stock. the stock mount is reduced by i'd say as least 50% as it goes inside of the block adapter. you might think that there won't be enuff meat left on the stock but once you get it right and screwed in, it makes a very sturdy stock.

also the block adapter is held in with the pistol grip nut and with your normal 2 screws on top of the stock. thanks for the compliments....had me wondering for a while!!

there not too bad. used to have them on my 5.45 but went to kvar on it, had these in my parts bin thought i'd put them on this. they will take a little heat too (heat shield inside the lower) got the usual hogue feel....very comfortable when shooting quite a bit. the retainer come from dinzag, it's made of steel, little more higher quality can take some pretty good torque on the set screws.
