With all due respect, our stocks are not made from plastic, but a high-grade glass-filled nylon. Compare the Hi-Point 9mm stock that comes on the gun originally to our stock. You'll find that ours is a heavy, solid stock.I'm not a fan of ati stocks..the plastic finish just looks cheap..like a dime store toy gun.
We have! Rifle Stocks and other Gunstocks for AK, AR, SKS and more - Advanced Technology, Inc.I have mixed opinions on these ATI Mosin stocks. For the low price (for the black ones at least), you get a decent looking and handling drop-in stock that is rugged and practical. I think that the cheek height is excessive, but I have not installed a scope mount to see if that justifies the height. With the military iron sights, the cheek weld has to be VERY tight (unnatural) in order to get an effective sight picture.
I have one "gunsmith special" 91/30 that arrived with a crushed stock, an ugly muzzle, and no front sight. I shortened the barrel, mounted adjustable iron sights, and added an ATI stock. The stock required some fitting, particularly along the forearm due to a casting flaw or design which warped the forearm. It wasn't too severe and I was able to float the barrel without too much of a gap on the non-offending side. The new sights are slightly taller than the original sights; that helps with the high cheek piece. I was pleased with the rifle.
I later purchased another ATI stock for another project. The warped forearm on this newer stock was so severe that once the barrel was cleared, there was a substantial gap on the opposite side. Junk. Not happy with that one. I easily overlook minor flaws and shortcuts on low-end products, but the poor quality of the ATI Mosin moulds is (was) not acceptable. Perhaps ATI has since corrected that flaw......
Sorry, I have not held or handled your AK or SKS rifle stocks....but if they are anything like your dragunov stocks, well...here is a picture...please tell me this does not look like dime store junk: (and it feels worse)With all due respect, our stocks are not made from plastic, but a high-grade glass-filled nylon.
