Clearly the buttstock is not winning any beauty contests, but the AK platform is generally known for function over form and just a quick glance can give some idea as to how the buttstock can work in providing recoil mitigation. The stock itself itself is polymer and steel springs and levers are utilized internally for the actual recoil reduction system.
