thanksGreat looking Russian SKS's. How is the recoil pad affixed to the 54 Tula. I assume it's there to add some length to the stock? Very nice looking laminate stock on the 55 Tula.
The recoil pad is attached with the original length screws and allows access to the cleaning kit. It does add a bit of length to the stock.
The '55 is due to arrive next week. Couldn't resist a '55 with a look like that!
