I picked up my first Romanian AK from my dealer on Friday. It is a SAR3 that I bought from Fireman here on the sight. It is in excellent condition the way it is, but I am going to do some mods to it. I am currently waiting on an unissued Russian plum set. I am also going to put a Romy threaded FSB and 74 brake on it. The final touch will be refinishing it. I am thinkinf of just Duracoating right over the current finish (it appears to be parked). If anybody has any tips or advice regarding the refinishing part...please feel free to chime in! :mrgreen:

I've followed this process a few times, and it works real well:

There is a variation that has been popular that involves using Betadine (available from the drug store or Wal-Mart) before staining. This gives the wood an orange base color that looks good under a redish stain.

I topcoated mine in oil, but a lot of people also use poly.[/url]
