I forgot your name . But I clearly remember that beautiful wood your buddy had refinished for you. I was going to try and refinish some laminated wood for an AK I have and was just wondering if your buddy could give me a few tips, if I remember correctly he was a member here too. Thanks. I know nothing of refinishing wood but have this to work with.

kstarr; There is a whole section on refinishing on 'AK Forum.net"; many details on red refinishing.

That was my buddies rifle and i was the one that refinished his wood stock on the psl.
I used Mini wax Polyshades bombay mahogany, rubbed on in light coats until i got the desired color.
The polyshades type of stain can be hard to work with if you arent familiar with it.
My Russian M44 was also refinished with this but i went with Gloss clear coat over the stain insteads of going with semi gloss that was on the PSL.
IF you have any further questions just PM me.

Thank you brother, that is exactly what I wanted to know. Personally, I think I preferred the semi gloss for my ak wood. I'll let you know how it comes out.
