Here's the one I purchased: I also bought the rubber butt pad, went on perfectly. The stock completely corrected the length of pull issue I have with AKs. Removing the stock that came with the WASR 10/63 involved removing two screws then leveraging a large screw driver into the receiver and pushing it off.

I did not use the little tiny screws supplied by Tapco, but instead drilled starter holes, with the supplied bit from Tapco and used the much longer/stronger original screws, had to use a power drill with a phillips head bit to get the necessary torque to get the screw countersunk, the front most one particularly, so that the spring and guide rod would go back into their original position.

Here's a picture:

Great accuracy, compared to the AK, which

is to be expected, because it's a machined

receiver, with a longer sight radius.

One to keep all original, one to trick out.

The tac stock version has a Chinese 20 round

mag.

But...

I got my AK as a package deal:

Got the rifle.
Four magazines.
Sling.
Eye pro.
Ear pro.
Nice case, holds four mags.
Correct bayo.
Recoil buffer

Got it all for $500.

I thought it was a great deal, I was looking to buy a WASR 10/63 and when I saw this deal I thought, "What the heck?"
