    I had an inquiry the other day as to the length of the stocks, from mounting flange to butt plate, without the recoil pad. The standard length is about 9.5", and the shorty 8-7/16", but that INCLUDES the 3/16" thick rubber spacer that gets glued on, which is required to make the slip on pad fit correctly. The standard pad adds a little bit to that, and the Limbsaver a little bit more since it is much thicker and softer.

    And you really need both the spacer and recoil pad to use this, as you can see from the above photo. I designed it this way so it can get the full benefit of the strength of chrome moly steel, while still being comparable in weight to modular stocks made of other materials such as aluminum. I'm offering the information on the length sans pad, so if you wanted to use a different pad besides the ones that I offer, you can figure out how long the combination will be. One advantage of these stocks, is that by using a standard pad for a common rifle, you have several different options to choose from, and they are easy to swap out.

    Another customer inquired as to length compared to an AK Warsaw length stock. My Shorty stock WITHOUT a folding mechanism is slightly shorter than warsaw length, and with a folder, it is slightly longer, with the standard pad. A Limbsaver, of course, adds a little extra length. If there were enough of a demand, I could probably make another spacer for my welding jig, that would allow a stock that is even shorter still, but I can't see the need personally for one that short.

    As posted in the vendor section, effective immediately, all stock prices are reduced by $10 each, and the shipping is on me, in celebration of the birth of my son.

    I didn't edit my original post, so just subtract from that.

    Bump. Here's an unsolicited email that I received from a satisfied customer a while back:

    Hi, I just received the stock today and just got done installing it. Personally,
    this is the best stock I've owned for the AK rifle. I've had the regular plastic
    stock, the DPH Skeleton stock, Tromix stock and the Ace Galil style stock. Those
    stocks are well built, but to me just didn't look right on the AK. The triangular
    shaped stocks like the AKS-74u stocks and your Wolverine stock match the AK rifles
    and shotguns I think much better than what's out there. The stock looks real good
    and doesn't have that upward angle appearance. For some reason, the ACE Galil stock
    has an noticeable upward appearance and feel. Very satisfied customer here.

    Pull up your pants, turn off that damn rap and speak clear English, if you want to talk to me.
