Default Triangle Stock

I'm planning on picking up a triangle stock for my 47 and was looking for feedback from those who has triangle stocks. Are they comfortable to shoot with? I'm coming from a standard wood fixed stock.

No, a typical folding stock is usually far less comfortable than a standard wooden stock. But the utility outweighs comfort in some of my builds

Unless it's an AK-10X series polymer sidefolder. They are equally comfortable, stronger, more durable, lighter, and far more utilitarian than a woodstock or a triangle folder.

I swap between the poly folder and triangle folder on my 107UR, and I can tell you that the poly folder (same as a fixed stock) is much more comfortable after a few mags worth. The triangle is narrower, so recoil feels more acute to me.

I took a tip from Rob Ski and wrapped the upper portion of my folding stock.

It is the one in the middle. It is very comfortable.

It depends how much you shoot and how used to recoil you are I guess.
As the poster above me said, once you wrap the metal its like any other stock imo.
But I'm long past the days of feeling any recoil discomfort. I have a shoulder made of iron with dead nerve endings apparently.

I put a triangle stock on my SLR-104FR and like it better than the polymer stock. Of course recoil is of no concern at all with the 5.45x39 compared to 7.62x39. Best reason I went with the triangle was for LOP. I added the rubber butt pad as well, so it's optimal for me compared to the Warsaw length stock which is too short for me to get used to.
I shoot my Yugo UF all day long and the metal folding stock doesn't affect me at all though. Maybe I've been recoil desensitized as well.

I like the triangle stock. Have one on my SGL21, I use the RD pouch with it and also added the little rubber pad designed for it, no comfort complaints from me.

I put a bonesteel side folder on my 56s and like it as much as the wooden stock. I went with the longer version; I think they call it NATO length as I'm 6'3" and it fits like a glove.

My triangle feels fine but then again I am not running 1000s of rounds on an all day course. If that was the case I would add a foam pad or get the polymer folding stock offered by kvar I think

I assume you are going to use the Manticore style aluminum and attach it in a fixed configuration or are you doing a conversion with new trunnion and all?

It is more comfortable that the Polish/German/Romanian and Hungarian wire folders but not as authentic looking unless you do the full conversion and swap out the trunnion. I think the Magpul stock looks pretty good and it is much more comfortable.
