"I received the SVD wood conversion today,the finish and look are done very well.One thing that needs attention is the fore end , it is 1/4 inch too long and needs to be cut down and a new recess cut to be able to fit , I am a cabinetmaker so I can modify it in shop. I have waited too long for it to send it back and get another one just like it. Overall the wood parts are worth the effort to refit as is an elegant look for the SVD. Shalom.

"As other reviewers have already pointed out, the holes are not very optimal. I got the longer center screw stuck and stripped the head, causing me a bit of trouble in getting it out. After replacing it with a Phillips head screw that wouldn't strip as easily, no problems installing it.

As for cosmetics, the stain on mine is really uneven. It's darker towards some points, and almost yellow light at others, with one bad drip on it that stands out. It still looks ok at a decent medium orange, but I'd've hoped for a deeper red color. That aside, it's not really noticeable from further away than the view of the person holding it

Now, as far as design goes too, this is one of my other major qualms. The stock is fine, but the handguard is a bit off, because instead of splitting in half, it's one, thick piece, and it's tight, making barrel maintenance difficult, and towards the gas tube it's more loose, bringing black electrical tape into action fixes it though. n the other hand, being so thick makes it very durable, and the lamination will prevent scratches.

Overall, it's not great by any means, but it's not bad. It does what it's supposed to, and it certainly is a cosmetic improvement over the inaccurate polymer, but the term "high grade" just doesn't sit too well on my tongue. Certainly better than paying 500$ for a legitimate stock and handguard that would need modifications to fit. Get it if you want that classy, swag look.

"The meaning of high grade is truly hard wood! I thought it would be a little weak, but it is tough and adds a couple pounds. Which undoubtedly was why I was surprised with the shipping weight!

Just like the other reviewer, they are right that you need to drill better pilot holes for the stock, other than a few other very minor tweaks here and there and it's worth it!

"got this for my a&k svd and i love it. it give it a much more realistic look and feel. Its not very expensive for an upgrade although it did require a little bit of modification to fit. it also requires some taking apart of the gun to put the handguard on so make sure you know what you are doing. all in all i was very pleased with it
