The upper and lower handguards on my Yugo M70 are rough and it looks like there is no finish. Is this the way they are when they were isssued?

I don`t want my Yugo looking like a Wasr....

They were smooth and unfinished from the factory. Probly had some lineseed oil or such applie to them to keep water off. Templar should know. His is origional

That is correct, smooth to semi-smooth with no finish other than cosmoline or a grease type protectant.

The factory wood is birch which is native to The Yugolasv Federation, not teak wherever that rumor got started....they use Linseed oil as a preservative. It's the same wood as used on the Finnish Mosin Nagants!

Now everyone reading this is going by darn he's right. Hope this helps.

I got a replacement set from CAI. The top wood has a very waxy feel to it (And no, it's not cosmoline.) while the lower has a rough feel. Will the lineseed oil have the waxy feel.
