Bulgarian C93 Stock

Recently I picked up a Bulgarian C93 rifle with a milled receiver. I like the rifle, but hate the stock. The previous owner removed the thumb hole stock and installed a regular stock on it. The stock is to short for my long arms. The receiver only has a top tang to hold the stock in and it has a slight wobble. I was checking out the Ironwood stock site and they listed a Bulgarian stock for the milled receiver with only a top tang. Has anyone tried 1 of these stocks and does it wobble? All info would be appreciated. Leed709

I've never heard of a Bulgarian C93.

Century makes a C39

Arsenal/Bulgaria made the SA93 those were also single tang.

Depending on how your receiver is cut, adding the second tang is worth the effort. IIRC , my SLR-95 was already "notched" for the tang internally.

Not sure which one you actually have though.

You say your's has a "regular stock".....is it a milled two tang stock thats only being held by the top tang? IE there is a recess on the bottom of the stock for a second tang that isnt there?

The only reason I opened this thread is because I never heard of a Bulgarian C93.
Can you post a pic?

The FAL is not a "platform".
It is a lady-lookin' foreign made collection of sexy Belgian curves that intimidates the shit out of today's Pajama-boy males.

It's not an Assault Rifle, it a Sport Utility Rifle

The 93 were imported as sporter gun meaning thumb hole stocks so no need for lower tang .Some were however pre drilled for it . So they are easier

I would def get a lower tang and have it put on it is not that hard and really opens up the options for stocks ..Rememebr stamped stocks wont work most of the time

Go with the Ironwood non warsaw pact length. You can get the one made for a single tang or have the lower tang put on and get a regular milled stock. The single tang should not wobble if made and i stalled correctly.

Bulgarian SA93

Thanks for the replies. I removed the stock and it is not cut for a lower tang. Checked out ironwoods web site and I ordered the laminated unfinished Bulgarian stock cut for the upper tang. Have another question. Is there anyway to tell when this rifle was made? It was imported by a company in Va.

I'd think 93 is some kind of indication. 1993, and a few years after. The SLR-95, which had black plastic furniture and fixed muzzle brake superseded the SA 93.
