Still they are quiet good for CQB.

No longer a thread for users to post THEIR OWN pictures in I guess.

Right now, this thread has 13 pages, and 12 of them have pictures of other's rifles. The posting seemed to slow down, that's why I contributed with a few extras. Grant you though, it would be more interesting if we had a thread of only our AKs.

After about an hour of searching, finally figured out how to post pictures instead of links to pictures! LOL
Anyway, here are a few pictures of my Bulgy SSR 85c that had the skeleton stock.
First redo with all black:

Next with the wood, think I am staying with the wood and moving black to my Romy:



Hope you all like!

So nobody enjoys seeing the vintage pics of the AKs in action like I do? This is an AK picture thread--the very first thread posted pics of AKs that weren't theirs--- If you want pics of our own personal AKs then inundate it with those as well---I dont think anyone would mind

Love the look of those stock, your gun looks great.
Do those Beryl stocks bolt right in w/o modification? Also, are they NATO or Warsaw Pact length? I assume Warsaw, but the Polish didn't always stick to the Warsaw Pact.

Thanks. They're actually about 1" shorter than Warsaw. Typical for the Polish, since it gets cold as hell there, so most of their gear is designed to be used with heavy winter clothing. Great for me since it's the same where I live.

The threaded holes for the mounting screws are very close to not being compatible with the hole locations of the Saiga trunnion, but after some mods to the screws, I got both of them in and secured. The Beryl stock is designed to work with an internal reinforcement bracket that secures to the pistol grip nut, but it's not required. I have one for an E. German folder that's supposed to work, but I don't see any point in using it.

The cheek weld on this stock is great, and the rubber buttpad and coating of the stock frame is very comfortable.

My one complaint is that the safety is tough to work with the stock folded, and requires you to lift the stock up slightly to flip it on/off of the true SA position. It will go down to what would normally be the FA position and will allow the trigger to operate. I'm not sure how this works on the Beryl, since I believe that like the Tantal they have a fire selector on the left side, and safety on the right.
