Samson Ak47 underfolding cheek piece

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 8, 2012
This is a great item but be forwarned, it is INCREDIBILY hard to put on. It took me 30 minutes and needed a vise to put on and almost bent the stock rail. For all that effort it should be about $25. I did get it on but if you are not willing to go to great effort to get it on don't get it.
Pros: Well made, looks good, good cheek weld
Cons: Take a hydraulic press to put on....
Would recommend: No

The two allen screws on the top can be loosened to slightly adjust the height of the cheek piece. The problem I experienced was the slot that the stock rail was supposed to go in was so tight that it was impossible to force the rail into the slot. I applied so much force that it completely marred up the finish on my stock rail, but I still couldn't make it all the way in like it was supposed to. Maybe it was just that particular cheek rest that was slightly out of specs? I don't know. But I ended up not being able mo...
