    I bought recently Saiga M3 EXP-01 carbine (NIB 300$), and now i'd like to know where i can buy/order folding/non-folding skeleton stock. Do the regular AK47 or 74M stocks fit my rifle. AK-spesialists, please help.

    Which stock is that?

    European Style Krinkov Non-folding Stock
    FSE-C1 Chinese Krinkov Style Stock
    FSE-C2 Chinese Krinkov Style Stock
    FSE-M1 Bulgarian Krinkov Stock


    Do you have a milled receiver? And what AK is that? It doesnt quite look like AK103?

    Edited to add better pic

    That's a SAR-1 in the pic, which has a stamped receiver. I'm using the "European Style Krinkov Non-folding Stock".

    I don't know if it will fit the Saiga. Hopefull somebody else can advise you.

    The saigas and sar's are both stamped AK's and should be completely compatable with the same stocks.

    It would be pretty much impossible to make fold. It's not a pinned folder, it was made with no hinge at all.

    On a postive note, it is made in USA by FSE if you need a US made part for your 9.22r parts count.

    DMK,
    What sort of cover do you have on the stock where you put your cheek? Is this something you made or are these coming with them from RPB?

    Ace makes an excellent abeit somewhat pricey stock for the AK and AR family.

    Hehe, it's a piece of automotive heater hose held on with plastic tie straps. Hey, it's an AK! ;)

    I'm going to cover the rubber hose with paracord, I just hadn't got to it yet.

    That is the one drawback to that stock. In cold weather, that metal frame gets very cold and painful on your cheak. It's not bad in the warm weather though.

    The ACE stock that riddleofsteel mentioned looks like a quality piece also. I have now experience with it though.
