    Any of you guys run adjustable length stocks on your AK? I'd like to know what works, what doesn't, where to buy, what to avoid, etc.

    The most comfortable for me is one I have with a dragunov. I know you where asking about adjustable stocks but this is great for taller shooters

    I have the full Tapco set and I am happy with it.

    I was running a VLTOR stock tube with a Magpul butt stock until I found a folder I liked.
    The VLTOR is a little bit heavier than the average Tapco or UTG since it's aluminum, but it's tough and the screws wont wallow themselves out.

    You still have that VLTOR? I would like to get a look at one.

    Here's what it looked like mounted.

    Off the rifle.

    Without the stock. There's a place for a QD swivel on both sides.

    Goes on with two screws, same as most AK stocks. It comes with plastic inserts to fill the gap on the back of the receiver since the tube it's self doesn't take up all the space.

    [​IMG]
    There's also a watertight storage compartment that can be accessed by screwing off the end of the tube.

    Like I said, it's better than the polymer ones in every category except weight though the tube only weighs about 8 ounces by it's self. In my case, it would have been lighter with a lighter buttstock, but I've wanted a good sidefolder for a long time anyway.

    Here's a good link comparing the VLTOR (which is milspec) with the similar CAA model (which is commercial spec).

    ATI (Advanced Technology, Inc.) makes a nice telescoping, folding package. It includes the front furniture, I just haven't put it on. I think I gave $150 for it at a gun show a while back.

    I bought the VLTOR from charliesgrave shown above - looks good, runs good, and gives me planty of options. Thanks for all the input!

    It fit perfectly. Looking forward to a range trip where I can finally play with my scope without head-butting it on every shot.
