israeli buttplate on straight comb plastic stock

Okay folks, so a shot in the dark. Anyone non-trapdoor israeli style metal buttplate: Do we know how it measures/fits/doesn't fit with a Straight comb style plastic stock?

Not just if it doesn't fit, but in what way it doesn't fit, exactly.

I'm assuming you're talking about a STG58 stock. They are 4 1/2" tall and 2 5/8" wide. I don't have a wood stock metric steel butt plate now. I recall they were similar to the M1 Garand type and the STG58 stock tapers more at the bottom.

you'll still need to square the mounting surface - it's angled now and the buttplate will have a bit of wiggle. Maybe grease up the buttplate and ues a couple points of bedding material on butt.

Well, I guess it's time to buy one to experiment with and see what can be done with maybe some liquid gasket or other material.
