SKS Synthetic stock?

I have a Yugo SKS and have been thinking about changing out the stock to maybe an ATI Monte Carlo stock. I just want something plain looking like that. Any suggestions?

You won't regret the Monte Carlo. Those wooden stocks are way too short for grown folks. The Monte Carlo is a great choice. I had a Tapco stock with the collapsing buttstock and pistol grip for a while and it just didn't feel right to me. Those long rifles feel awkward with that type of tactical stock, but the Monte Carlo is a great fit.

Be careful trying to swap out the gas piston cover when you do it. I broke more than one steel pin trying to tap out the retaining pin in mine. There's probably an easy trick that I don't know about, but it's really stuck in there.

I believe that is the stock my Chinese SKS came in. I switched it out for a tapco. The ATI stock is not light, but it did make the rifle balance better. It had a decent cheekrest too.

Look at the stocks Chaote makes for the SKS. They are regarded by many as the best available. They don't currently offer a Monte Carlo style but they do make traditional and dragonov styles.

I might normally suggest selling the SKS and buying a KelTec bull pup .308 but they are very proud of their new toy. The bull pup SKS is the next best thing in 30 cal, at least it can punch properly through a wall if need be. Chaote stocks are OK but too long, for a more accurate rifle they are great.

I saw an OD composite stock on a SKS yesterday - It was very nice. I looked for a manufac but could not find one marked. If I find one I will share, but this has me interested in changing mine out.
