That optic is WAY too high for that stock. If you could get a low mount Aimpoint or a low mount RMR you may be able to do that, but not as it stands.

 

I vote for wood to save that travesty.

I'm in the UK so can't really help, but unissued Izhmash and Tula Bakelites sell for about 30GBP a pair over here.

Shoot it and put the money into ammo. find a lighter more comfortable fore end.

anyone wanna buy a quad rail?

I'll give you a quarter. haha.gif

 

My Saiga sports the Arsenal polymer, and the next one will be a more traditional wood. I held an M10 with teh M+M rail, and it was "chunky" even with the rail covers. My hands are more suited for the Bulgy bulge.

Get rid of that quad rail!!! wood is a very nice choice too. I prefer this combo.

can we get a weight on this build?

 

 

I like everything but that quad rail but thats only a question of preference.

Nice rifle from the pic.

Oh I thought you meant you added it after the rifle was given to you. I didn't realise the topic was about that rifle, without the scope.

As you can tell I prefer wood :)attachicon.gifgallery_44524_1271_864060.jpeg

 

which is why you should get a wood stock for that svd (like mine) im going to try and get the wood to match as close as possible to the tiger.

I'd have a job as mines actually the SVDS paratroop version with the sidefolding stock, the receiver is different from the fixed stock version.I've still got the black plastic handguards and pistolgrip but prefer the wood versions.

The Handguard weighs 10oz. Fairly light for being very well built. I'll see if i can get a full weight of my rifle sometime this week.

Wood is beautiful, if you're into aesthetics then go for wood. If you're more of a utilitarian then plastic is what you should have; lighter, and will stand up to more abuse than wood.
