View Full Version : Modify Dragonov stock to fit milled???

November 12, 2005, 09:26 PM
I'd like to modify a Romanian Dragunov-style stock to fit my Bulgarian Arsenal SLR-96 rifle.

I made up a new stock a few years ago, but it's strictly a prototype, with a lot of alterations and patches under the paint.

Unfortunately, I'm living in an apartment now, and all my shop equipment is gone, so I can't make a final version.

Here's what I'd like to know:

1. What's the length of the Romanian stock from the trigger to the butt pad?

2. I intend to alter the stock by cutting it down the line in the picture, and re-fit it to the milled SLR action.
Anybody know any reasons why this won't work?

Since It'll probably be painted, I can use epoxy to do some fill-in fitting.

Here's a picture of the current prototype stock:

This is TOTALLY home made, including the butt pad and the sling swivel.

Here's the stock I want to use.
It's from Centerfire Systems.
The line is about where I plan on cutting it down so it'll seat on the SLR receiver:

Advice is welcome.
