Ok, so don't rail me if this has been answered 100x. I tried to search for an answer and couldn't find one. I've got the square back thumbhole stock and I have been looking to replace it (mine is beyond repair). Ideally I'd like to replace it with the same wood thumbhole stock. I can't seem to find these anywhere. I can find the slant back all day long. Is there a reason for this? In the information I was finding it seems like they are ....... delicate..... prone to cracking. So the questions..... anyone know where I can get a replacement? Is there a better option? Are the slant back ones more durable? Is there some sort of conversion piece that can be purchased to use the slant back stocks? Trying to fixture out my options. I love the look of the stock, stocks and really want to keep it as close to that as possible while being as durable as possible. Thanks for any/all help.

You are lucky to own a squareback 54r. Unfortunately finding a replacement is like looking for the Holy Grail. Most of the squarebacks were imported and sold with firewood stocks in the 02 series with integrated gas block. . I have absolutely no idea why. You can modify a slantback 54 stock to fit with a lot patience and dremel work.If modded it will make it more prone to cracking. You might get lucky on Gunbroker searching under Vepr or running a WTB add on this forum. I know Shore Tactical carries some some furniture but I think its all slantback style. You might want to convert it to standard AK configuration.

Thanks for the info. So, (and i'm sure this has been answered somewhere in the forum) if I was to convert to a standard AK, what would that entail?

Check out Dinzag Arms. Brian produces some very nice conversion parts for Saiga and Veprs.
