    I for one love the mix of metal and wood look of an AK,  I've been planning on getting some wood bits for the Impact but not so easy to find.  I have a wood pistol grip coming but wanted some other parts as well to add to the theme.  Got the K&L adjustable mount with the hopes that within a month they would have the additional walnut cheek rest but they haven't done anything with it in a month or anything towards the pistol grip so I decided to make some parts myself.

    I don't claim to be a woodworker but I know my way around a skilsaw,  this was all done with just a skilsaw and sanding.  Drill for the holes of course,  rubbed down with 2 coats of boiled linseed oil.  Pistol grip is bought and on the way,  you guys like the foregrip?  I wanted something flat bottomed for shooting off a tripod and something nicer to grab than the bottle when shooting offhand.

    Cheek rest is adjustable for height and tilt of course.

    Don't mind the sawdust ;)

    Nice work! I really like the cheek rest.

    I've been looking for wood  pieces for a while now, kind of like Notts pest control has in his YouTube videos.

    Yeah those laminates look good,  might give making a butt pad a try.  The cheek rest was made to attach to the k&l adjustable cheek rest so it can go up and down and tilt as well.

    Feels great to shoulder!

    One more piece to the puzzle and thanks guys.  This piece was tricky to make without a table saw and almost gave up a time or two but it worked out.  Might end up putting a strip of rubber along the back or something.  Not sure why the cheekrest turned out darker but it's all from the same piece of wood.   Bought an old makita jigsaw on craigslist that helped.

    Beautiful job!!

    I prefer traditional stocks so the Impact is a radical change for me, Once I have the gun in-hand I will be tempering the "tactical" look with a bit of wood. Your results are very encouraging – looks great!

    The walnut is nice! I'm thinking about using buckthorn (a very deep red-orange hardwood) or maybe maple with an aqua-fortis finish. I am thinking that I will partially countersink a line of those rubber "drawer bumpers" on the butt to provide a bit of grip to the shoulder.

    Winter projects… I am working on a maple and cherry  "firewood" stock to replace the plastic one on the Maximus at the moment.

    Thanks for posting!
