Just got my SLR-106UR back from Troy at InRange.
my Chinese made Norinco Mak-90 with new wood painted black
My 'Gardner' inspired Draco SBR. I'll be taking a more traditional approach with it next year :grin:
FInally got a bakelite magazine, but at $40 each I probably wont get anymore.
A few of my collection...
From left to right:
Arsenal SA-M7 Classic
Century Yugo M70AB2
Arsenal SGL 31-84
Saiga 12 converted by me :goof: :grin:
Romanian WASR, my first AK... hell, my first gun ever.
I sanded the wood with 100, 150, 220, 330, than 600 grain sandpaper, went over it with double ought steel wool, then finished it with Deft, a clear coat. The pistol grip is a $10 Bakelite job from a local gun show. Everything is else is how it came. I've run a couple hundred rounds through her... I'm in love. Future plans include a Romy folding stock and a donkey dong.
Try to find a cleaning rod, also, to complete "the look". Nice-looking piece, just the same! Welcome to the club!!
I just got finished converting my Bulgarian "Arsenal" SLR-95. I bought the gun new back when they were just coming into the county for about $260.00 OTD. I replaced the trigger group with a Tapco G2 Double Hook Trigger Group. Replaced the butt stock with an Ironwood Birch Stock. The front hand guards were Bulgarian painted hand guards from an SLR-96 that I traded someone for that I stripped and refinished. The pistol grip is a Hogue AK grip. The wood was all finished with "Old Masters" Dark Mohogany penetrating stain and about 4 coats of "Formby's Tung Oil Finish" then rubbed lightly with "000" steel wool.
Heres the before picture...(the one on the top is my Arsenal SA M-7)
