Another AK question: Big stock?

As some may know, I've been modding a CAI AK74 with Galil furniture. I don't want a folding stock, so I purchased an Arsenal fixed stock which fits well but looks a little odd because it is so small. It's purely an aesthetic thing, but does anyone make a NATO length AK fixed stock that's a little 'beefier', to match the size of the Galil handguard and pistol grip?

There is no such thing as a NATO AK anything. Gunparts sells a couple of plastic stock extenders for the AK74 though. $6.95 for one with a buttplate. No attaching screws though. http://www.gunpartscorp.com/catalog/Detail.aspx?pid=1154040&catid=997

There is no such thing as a NATO AK anything.Perhaps not officially.

K-Var started selling "NATO length" AK stocks a few years ago. These are about 1" longer than Warsaw (or standard issue) length.

I have the Arsenal "NATO length" stock. It fits but it is tiny and looks out proportion with the Galil furniture. Buttplate is only 4 inches. I have seen AK stocks that have a larger butt area that look like they might match better size-wise. I haven't been able to find a photo, but recall one that was thicker through the body and with a slight hum on the top of the stock near the buttplate.

The rifle is fully functional, just an appearance thing. Basically something more like a Valmet stock in size.

"...Perhaps not officially..." Not at all. Mind you, with a whole bunch of former Warsaw Pact countries joining NATO that might change(Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Sloveniain 2004), but AK's and the 7.62 x 39 are not NATO standard.
