Default (Help?) Got A Saiga SVD stock for PSL... It needs modification

Background:
So I have a Romanian PSL (square back receiver) that used to have wire folding AK stock on it, but I wanted something a littler more solid with a longer length of pull. Reading up on synthetic PSL and SVD furniture my options were limited, as I learned that companies like Black Horse Arsenal have gone out business and I haven't seen any of their stocks for sale for any sane price on the web.

So to counter this I was able to gather by digging through other forums that with my square back receiver type I could buy the saiga style SVD stocks and fit it with no modification as square back receivers could accept any ak style stock, however every photo I looked for about PSL and the synthetic stocks were mainly on crescent cut receivers.

Problem:
As it stands my PSL can accept the stock but the pistol grip sits way too far back and doesn't touch the back of the trigger guard like it's supposed to. The only way I see of fixing this is to cut out the square plastic trunnion insert so I can move the stock forward. However I have very basic tools, and my machine skills are not well practiced, so I as much as I would want to break out the dremel and experiment it'd be wise not to. I have no one I know who'd be able to give me advice on how to modify this either.

TLDR:
Saiga SVD stock sits too far back on PSL, how can I modify it?

You are most likely not going to get anything that looks remotely correct or good with your route. I would invest in the proper furniture, either surplus or aftermarket and save yourself the headache

For months I've looked around and a real svd stock cost 300, it might not even end up fitting. Also I found 1 black horse arsenal stock set for a crescent cut reciver on gun broker but the seller wants 600 dollars. So I have no idea where to get proper furniture for a square back reciver.

I'm gonna have to agree with this. The difference in the positioning of the grip between the PSL and sporter AK are too great for a simple modification of this stock to accomplish what you're trying to do, in my opinion.

By the time you cut out enough of the stock to move the grip forward, it doesn't look like there's going to be enough meat to keep structural integrity. I think for now your best bet is to get a wood stock with an extended buttpad or something, and keep an eye open for a proper synthetic stock.

A real SVD stock won't fit, it's a completely different receiver. Look for a wooden stock off of older Romanian rifles that came in during the AWB.

Why don’t you just get a real PSL stock and see if you can make it fit? Also, how in the hell are you ever going to increase your skill level if you don’t try doing things you have never done before?

How far does the stock adapter/block go into your trunion?

It is easier to adapt than what you wanted to adapt

The stock:


The stock on the rifle:




As you can see, the cut in the stock goes to the rear of the receiver allowing the grip to line up with the trigger guard. And yes, you will have to do some fitting, but it really doesn't look very hard. I know that your receiver is square cut, but the stock is wood which is easy to work with and just about anything can be added or subtracted to make it work.
