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)

Nice conversion and refinish. I've never stained any stock sets, but have also used Fomby's Low Gloss Tung Oil with success on a Chicom stock set.

For some reason, I was never a big fan of the swelled lower handguards that came with the SLR-96 and SA-93. They don't necessarily look bad.....just different. I was always curious as to why Arsenal made them that way.

Looks great - your $260 investment is now worth about 4 times as much.
