I have a K-Var black plastic stock on an SAR-1. I like it, but it's an AKM, with an AK-74 style stock.

How does the TAPCO black plastic AKM stock compare to K-Var's stuff colorwise and otherwise?

If you mean their new AKM stocks, they are pretty nice. Hard and durable plastic, not brittle- and for once they are actually AK stocks! I was glad to see them release something actually designed for the AK instead of rigged to go with it.


If you don't mind the lack of a cleaning kit (the ones I handled didn't have the slot) then it is definitely worth buying.

Despite this nay saying I have had no issue with my tapco furniture.

There is a pretty big Tapco hater bandwagon, yet to see any real evidence of "so horrible words cannot describe it"

Taking a look at it, I would guess that its pretty solid. That being said, there was never a polymer AKM stock that I know of. I think your rifle would look better with the 74 stock as that probably happened many a times where AKMs were upgraded to 74 furniture.

Tapco has always been short on quality and design. People are willing to pay a few more bucks to have something built right. I think Tapco really pissed away an opportunity by not coming to market with a quality AK-100 style folder like K-Var did.

Oh, I've dealt with TAPCO plenty in the past. I bought a boatload of FAL stuff from them when they had the kits and parts.

I did buy one of their black plastic "Galil" handguard sets. I was not impressed. Hence my question about their stocks.

Thanks for the replies! I'll stick with the K-Var stock.
