Default Zastava m77 buttstock

I recently saw a post on here by a guy who bought a Zastava m77m2010. They seem pretty sweet and I'm contemplating buying one. However, if I do get one, I'll want to get a different buttstock (I'd like something with an adjustable cheek riser and I'm left handed, so factory stock looks like it would be pretty uncomfortable). It would be cool to find one like those of the m91, but I can't seem to find an m91 buttstock anywhere.

Does anybody know where I might be able to find something like this?

Do you think I might be able to retrofit something made for another type of ak? Would these fit?

Anyone? Would this do better in a different sub-forum (or whatever they're called)? The m77 is similar to an SVD/PSL, so I figured this would be a good place.

Any standard Yugo M70 or M76 stock will fit. The stock set up on a Yugo should be lefty friendly unlike a PSL etc. I do not think any PSL, SVD ot tang type stock will work at all on a M77.
The Yugo stocks have high combs and are great for the optics on a DMR etc. The rail on a M77 is kind of rear set so it might take some scope tweaking for eye relief. I posted about an M77 and you may have seen one by Dferg10.

I don't know why people keep knocking the thumbhole stock. I love it! It has a nice thick padding. Haters!!

Promag .308 galil mags can easily be modded for the M77 - Midway USA is sold out though. As for the stock I would go ACE side folding. I am working on importing a M91 stock from Europe - but my contact in has to do a lot of paperwork just to get it to his country and then send it to me in Wisconsin. Also - with M91 stock do I have to have 6 compliant parts with 922R? Right now my rifle has 6 with FCG, Flash hider, ACE stock, and ergo grip - but with M91 stock I would only have 4 compliant parts unless I used my Galil mags or swapped out the hand guards for IWD. I wish Century Arms would just import a damn M91 with muzzle nut welded on.

You can always have a USA made gas piston made. I forgot the fellow who can copy those pretty readily. Might cost $45 or so.
Unfortunately the M91 would need a new two axis hole receiver vs three., and be made in sporting profile like the M77 for import. But the stock and furniture could remain.

You can adapt a Magpul or just about any other stock to that rifle with a little work.

They work great...for right handed shooters. But they are not comfortable to use left handed. At all. That's one reason why I went and modded mine. (The other was because I could...)

Mostly they scream neutered import vs military. They shoot OK., more about configuration., just a larger issue than say receiver dimples or neutered bayo lug etc. not a functional issue though the thumbhole stocks are kind of long.
