    UPDATE:
    [​IMG]
    Just added this last night. I really like the looks of it but it made the rifle about twice as heavy as the wood. I think I will be keeping it this way its pretty sexy. Now I have to decide on optics... any suggestions???? what optics work best for AK? in the $300 price range or a little above.

    For anyone wondering how to do this or thinking about doing this i used this tutorial Hoohaa's Furniture Refinishing and it was very helpful. I think it turned out well in the end. The only thing I would've changed is I would've bought semi gloss or satin polyurethane rather than gloss because it is a little bit shinier than i was expecting. So what do you guys think?

    really? I like both but I like the fact that i have so many options to mount things on it now. That is another big reason i decided to try it. If it wasnt such a pain to change it I would just swap it out everytime i went to the range.

    The polymer gear looks good, just not my thing. I dont run any accessories on my ak and a NATO stock is perfect so i dont need adjustable.
    I dont know why but wood furniture is starting to grow on me, and your set just makes me like wood that much more.

    good job on the refinish.


    I was thinking about dying mine green. if I thought I could get the desired effect I would probably do it. I like the flat rather than glossy because I want to toss mine around and not worry about it. I dont know that it would be what I would want so I guess I am ok with the tan on mine. lol
