I just recently purchased a converted Saiga 7.62x39. The FCG has been moved forward. There's a Hogue pistol grip and some nice Timbersmith wood stocks on. I cannot put my cheeks properly on the stock to get a nice aim on the irons. I want to put some T6 adjustable stocks. Am I able to just get the regular AK/WASR T6 stocks and put it on?

I remember my last WASR, it had one big screw to remove the buttstock. The wood stock that's on it now has the same big screw on top. Thanks.

It will work just fine. I would also take a look at kvar. Higher quality and an option for longer stock. Keep it ak looking.

When I added a stock to my Saiga Conversion, I think I had to get a Sagia stock. I think there is a flange/ tab that stick out of the Saiga reciever that is not present on normal AKs... I could be wrong because I only have experiences with Saiga.
I thought I saw a youtube video where the guy milled off the flange to mount an AK stock....



the flange between the two screw... (disregard the "A" and "B")

Your saiga should accept any standard stamped receiver type buttstock. If you're having trouble getting under the rear sight try a nato length stock. For me, the extra 1.25" makes a big difference.

I agree! Also for me it is not an issue of having long arms/being tall, I am used to typical rifle stocks in the US.
