    Yeah and that second selector slot looks homemade? That that leather sling and soak it in a closed plastic container of Lexoil for Leather.....for 7 days it'll look like not new, bit soft as a babys tushy.

    Patina on the furniture is the real deal not the gun itself The middle selector notch was there when I got the lower so yeah home done deal.Put many rounds thru that rifle over the years a solid hard run WASR 10/63 dated 1971 IIRC.

    Check out the pictures for this old auction of a documented bring back. Assuming nothing has been refinished, it looks damn near new. Maybe pulled from a cache of unissued weapons?
    Seems to confirm they did have shellac?

    The description states that the wood furniture was sanded, stained and refinished.

    It appears the metal has been refinished as well.

    Nice war relic.
    But might have been better left as originally captured.
