    Waffen Werks used to sell the NDS squareback and so does TGI. Might check with them and then sell the scalloped back. Much less hassle than trying to convert what you have IMHO. Much easier to go the other direction too., fron square to scallpoed., just as FYI.

    Scott, It should be pretty easy from what I remember on mine. Remove rivets and drill spot welds. Fab squareback section to the required dimensions and rivet/spot weld on. From sitting here at work I can't remember if there is any rivets or if it's just spot welded, but I'm thinking that there were some rivets as well. Might be mistaken though. Either way remove, fab new, and install. Paint to match.

    Hell on mine I used a Yugo M72 rear trunnion. It was a squareback with a standard PSL rear trunnion, so I had to weld up the original trunnion holes and redrill for the M72 trunnion. Then I used an M76 shoulder stock and M70 pistol grip. I was basically making a x54R version of an Iraqui Tabuk. Just remember, it's not magic, it's just metal. You can do almost anything you wish.

    What 2nd said. I used a cold steel blank, welded sheetmetal of correct thickness to the rear to bring it out to the right length and added square reinforcements instead of scalloped.

    Easier in that direction. cut n go. The other take a bit more doing. Depends on one's shop skills, tool access and time.
