I heard about these new stocks and thought they looked kinda cool.
they can be found here:http://cbrps.com/Products.html
So I was intrigued enough to fork over some cash for one of these beasties.
Bernie Wolfe, the owner and designer was very helpful and wouldn't take my money till he was ready to ship.
I ordered the black long chassis SKS stock on Monday, and paid for it Wednesday, it arrive on friday.
First impressions were that it's COOL looking, very much reminded me of the British SA80 rifle the huns* used to point at me in my youth.
I dropped my Yugo 55/66A1 into it with no hassles whatsoever, most people will have trouble removing the wood handguard unless the drill out the ferule pin to remove the endcap, its a ***** to hammer out.
I closed it all up good and tight (the action is secured in place by a u shaped piece that traps the barrel against the lower chassis and is secured with a detented pin.
heres how it looks :
now for functionality
The scope mount will not hold zero, as its not secured to the action.
Its like screwing a scope to the wooden stock on your rifle, not very solid and no matter how tight the match between action and stock, there will be shifting, leading to a wandering zero
Not to fear, I've be running a scoutscopes.com mount, a short rail that replaces the rear sight, the stock is relieved enough to allow this
the trigger is made no worse (SKS triggers aint great to start with) by the bar used to actuate it, and there appears to be no flexing
the top cover blocks the use of stripper clips, but can be flipped over to allow for this
