So, love my new saiga, but the stock feels sub-toysrus in terms of durability.

Has a anyone filled their stock with some type of gap filler or epoxy to strengthen it? If so, what did you use, and how well did it work?

Also, has anyone actually broken their Saiga stock, or am I just being paranoid?

Thanks!

The standard stock does feel extremely cheap. Someone needs to make one out of the same materials as AK stocks at least.

Some prefer to run it featureless.

Yes, featureless is how I intend to keep mine. Nor do I want wood trim on mine either.

Any ideas on how to beef up the factory stock?

The wood stock sprayed with bedliner works really well.:chris:

Try using a canned foam insulation
