Hello, I purchased a WASR single stack ak47 at Dunhams a few weeks ago for 250.00 on sale. After I bought it, I had to get rid of the crappy stocks. They were terrible. Crappy pattern with oil soaked texture. I ordered new stocks for it, I then customized the magazine well for double stack magazines. I changed the trigger group and have a few other parts ordered to make it compliant. I customized the safety to act as a bolt release too. Just wanted to share the project. Oh, also I scuffed up the entire rifle and painted it with a flat black exhaust header paint by Duplicolor. The pics dont do it justice. Oh i also purchased a 30rd pro mag and I have a 40rd steel magazine for it. I would estimate with the new stocks and the composite pro mag, it weighs about 3lbs lighter then the wooden stocks with the 40rd steel mag. If you want to see pics of the gun go to www.dskellogg.com/firearms.html
I also have 2 SKS yugoslavian rifles and a Saiga .410 that I made some custom 9rd magazines or it.
