Anyone have pics of their ironwood designs stocks all dressed up & ready for playtime? I'm thinking hard about that AK-74 foregrip & really really want to get my hands on one.

Also, I'd like the grooved buttstock and see that they no longer offer it - I wonder if they'd add it if anyone requested it on their order?

I have a pair of photos posted in this thread "my variants + photos I hope".
the bottom ak in each photo has an ironwood designs stock and pistol grip. they are very nice quality and only require minimal finishing. also price not too bad allways helps.
I bought laminated to go with my firsk polish kit. went to a local sherwin willimas with my grip to match a stain and they helped me pick out a near perfect match

Here is a link to an IW stocks I modified and finished to look like a Russian T3 set. It has a Russian grip and an upper that I made. I reshaped the lower and added a metal ferrule to the rear and installed reinforcing screws in the lower and buttstock.

For comparison here is a link to an all Russian T3 set.

In general IW makes a pretty good product.
It is not perfect and could use some tweaking for the purist.

As for maple sets, I e-mailed Matt a few months ago and his answer was not encouraging.
He said he did not know if he would make any more.
He said he was busy with other projects and that he may get around to it.
I guess if we want him to make some maple sets we need to get together and convince him.

Z_recto,
Nice work on the Ironwood stock. I have only seen a few with what I consider a nice looking finish on them. It makes a huge difference.

Well, I paid Matt @ Ironwood designs $180 for a customer set in December. I then told him axactly what I was looking for. 2 and half months later I received the set. I was in absolute shock when I saw this incredible set.

Highly, Highly recommend Matt.
