Try making sure the stock is well into your shoulder and watch how the stock rotates up and whacks your face. Full wooden stocks have less tendency to do that. Not that wooden stocks can't beat one's face.
Does this thing run a modified overhead gas piston based on the Simonov - Kalashnikov design? You say it's not an AK, but it looks to derive from that rifle.
I thought about getting one w/ a folding stock but went w/ a fixed stock then a week later added the AR style collapsible receiver extension and Magpul STR stock which has one of the best cheek welds of any stock on any firearm I have ever used. It's like a big fat pillow compared to the narrow fixed stock you'll find on any AK or AR.
I usually use a thumb-over grip but being as the irons are so close to bore my thumb interferes w/ my line of sight. I still am able to apply quite a bit of rearward pressure but it isn't as easy to keep the muzzle flat like on my ARs. Then again they all have brakes and 12-13" rails. Plus I don't have near the time behind this Czech rifle like I do an AR. At only 6.5 pounds I'll learn to like it
The bolt more or less rides on top of the receiver. It is a completely different design for sure. Short stroke piston, completely different bolt, etc.
