K-VAR's NATO length stocks are 1.25" longer. I much prefer the Warsaw length stocks though. An AK with a NATO stock looks really goofy to me.

To be exact. My KVAR US made Warsaw stock is 9.25 inches long measured from the back with a metal butt plate to the end of the rear of the receiver. The KVAR Nato stock is 10.50 inches.

Length of pull for the Warsaw is 12.75 inches
Length of pull for the Nato is 14 inches

Like I said I just ordered a K-VAR Warsaw length. I thought that was the size of my Ironwood Designs wood buttstock, but the K-VAR is longer by about an inch! I wanted the same size buttstocks. The Ironwood Designs wood buttstock is about 9.75" from the end of the receiver to the buttplate. Is this a custom length in between the Warsaw and NATO? I want them to be the same size......
