How hard is it on a Yugo underfolder? I prefer the wood look, but all the rifles I find have the black handguards.

This is a Romy site, but the procedure is exactly the same for Yugos:

You're right to want to ditch the poly, they look like crap and are low quality handguards IMO.

That is idiot simple. Thanks for the link.

Neat link, I keep meaning to take mine off and clean under them. I have no idea how long it's been since the lower handguard on mine was off, probably since it was assembled

Apparently I'm one of the lucky suckers that got all original wood with my Yugo, and after reading up on it I'm keeping it that way!

mine had wood on them but somone decided they wanted black so they attempted to paint them.... this was the result...

And after hours stripping and refinishing
