I want to show off my custom Saiga 12 build. After several months of not being able to find any wooden furniture that suited me, I made my own. I got a laminated black/black blank and went to work with some files and sandpaper and this is what I came up with. I wanted a stock for it with a more English grip instead of a AK style grip, and because I'm in NY it had to be a thumbhole stock instead of a pistol grip. It took quite a bit of planning but I'm thoroughly pleased with the outcome.

Very nice indeed. How much time do you have in the furniture? And what did the blank set you back if you don't mind me asking?
First, Thanks everyone.

It took me about 15 hours to do both pieces. The blank I got from the friends wife who works in the sales dept. of a local mill where they manufacture the blanks to supply several gun and sporting goods manufacturers, so I got it at cost. The same blanks can be found at Boyds and other sites. I don't think I would make one for anyone else because I'm sure the cost for the time involved would be cost prohibitive to all but the very wealthy. :shock: Unless you live in a state with restrictions like NY, it would be much more cost effective to get a bolt-on furniture set from Ironwood Designs or Timbersmith. It just wouldn't be one-of-a-kind custom, which is kind of what I was going for.
