Sold my last AR, and took this home from the fun show.

SLR-100H. The guy who sold it had spray-painted the wood black for whatever strange reason. I've spent the day stripping the paint off the wood, so it looks pretty bad. Need a new set of furniture probably, but the internals, and metal park finish on the outside is in perfect condition. Can't wait to shoot it.

very nice.

How much heavier is the milled receiver over a stamped?

lol, converted his EWR to an EBR with a can of kyrlon?

Some people bring home stray cats and dogs because they need a good home. Same sorta thing.

Who built it? Gordon Tech, Blue Ridge, MSC or another (can't remember who the other was).

I had 2 from MSC but sold them off.

Triumph, milled AK-47's are about 1.5 lbs or so heavier than a stamped AKM.

??? is that like taking Herman to the circus?

The "boning" process closes the pores on the wood, and makes it incredibly smooth. I know it sounds wierd... but I have seen it done, and done it and it works.



Remember Pedro Cerrano from Major League..He ended up playing President Palmer in 24

Boneing does make a difference,I used to keep a big rib bone around just for wood refinishing.

thanks guys.

I'm gonna try to follow Jeep's method. First things first, need a range test tomorrow.

BTW, the builder is MSC., hope that's not a bad builder.

oh, and I need to find a Russian sling.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 7:06:06 PM EDT
Did some looking around on the "boning process"

I was petrified as to what google might come up with when I searched...

There were several baseball forums/faq's all talking about do this to wood bats...One even mentioned using smooth glass...I am guessing that its not the fact that its a bone, just that its hard and must force down the raised grain.

Mike? of MSC made some good ones and then turned into a hack and used some pretty bad Hungarian shot out barrels. How does the barrel look? pitting? smoothbore?

smooth, sharp and chromed...

The Israelis wouldn't go for that either. They are even more pig-phobic than the muslims.

Are you sure its chromed?

Its actually supposed to be a Hungarian type III,but the Hungarian did'nt chrome line their bores.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 7:13:29 PM EDT
Nice!
If it shoots straight I wouldn't do a darn thing to it.

Those Hungarian barrels were chromed weren't they? Yugo's not.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 7:18:00 PM EDT
Some of those built by the 4 builders used parts from another country, also. But can't remember which country, Poland(?).
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 7:19:51 PM EDT
No,they used chromium in the bbl steel itself.It made a really accurate type III.I had one with a dark bore but strong deep rifling,it was the most accurate AK I've ever had.

John, you're probably right. The bore reminds me of my Swiss K31. They didn't chrome their bores but used a chromium alloy in the barrel that looks the same.

the bore is shiny with rifling, no dark spots that I could find.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 7:34:28 PM EDT

Link Posted: 1/21/2006 7:35:41 PM EDT
so then a Hungarian sling would be more appropriate?

Just my $0.02...

I'd substitute Formby's Tung Oil Finish (Low Gloss) for the Boiled Linseed Oil. The wood on these AK's is usually beech and the Tung Oil will really bring out the highlights in it.

And the Tung Oil is easy to "touch up" from time to time if needed. Cleaning solvents generally mess up BLO and it won't look right again unless you completely strip the stock and start over again.

I wouldn't "bone it", either...but that's just me...

You could always contact Laukart or try greentimber for one of these stocks.

So the slant brakes will fit? Wonder which one I should stick with...

ahhh choices.

Is your muzzle nut still welded? I'd go with the U.S. slant brake MidWestArmory is supposed to get them in and seems to have the best price with inexpensive shipping.

BlitzGR10 has a milled Polish stockset on the EE for $60.00 shipped. It needs the buttplate, trapdoor and screws. Could stand to be stripped and refinished. It would take you a couple of hours total. Better jump on it.

Well, since everybody else is posting picture I might as well join in. This is also a MSC build and has run 100% since I got rid of the cut up Shepard's hook for the trigger pins. The bore is very good and the receiver is in the 1000 range so I assume this was a earlier build. The furniture has been replaced.

but the lower handguard looks like it's for the AKM... (polish set on EE)

Most likey, but I sold a set of hanguards like that for about $40.00 which would leave $20.00 for the buttstock which by the looks of it is worth $60.00 on its own.

Yeagermeister,yes its normal to not have matching numbers on an SLR 100 H,the adjustable rear sight has been added.Sometimes the top covers can be a little tough.

Mark,you can always pick up a Polish type III handguard set.

unless that wood looks completely different in person, i think it looks great. it looks like its really been around and like its got some stories to tell. but i'm a sucker for the battlefield look- and that has it in the picture.

great find :)
