Matt,

I've added pads and the weapon was easier to shoot. My opinion is that while I can shoot a rifle that is too short for me (my bride's long guns for example) the extra length sure does make it more comfortable to shoot. I tire more quickly shooting a gun that doesn't fit. Three inches seems a tad much for just a new butt plate but I see no reason why it wouldn't work if you can find the right piece.

Matt, pads are the less expensive way to go. I also have gorilla arms which drag on the ground when I walk. I’ve never felt the need to add length to a rifle but, if necessary, I would not hesitate to buy a new stock or pad. If it doesn’t fit you properly, it is not a good tool and its effectiveness is compromised.

I've had an inexpensive Monte Carlo stock on one for years, 4x scope, can make an 18 oxygen cylinder dance at 200 yards. No, I'm not FOS, its a good shooter. Need to put on paper. But I recently out a tapco 6 position stock on another. Not in love with it, in fact, I'm considering getting another MC stock. I may even go back to the fixed te n rd mags too. The removable are just a novelty until shtf. Just my .02

While I am a fan of detachable magazines, I have to agree with just leaving the SKS 10 round mag just the way it is. The one exception that I've found are some of the paratrooper versions that used the standard AK 47 mags.
