So, the big brown truck showed up today with a Valentine's present for me - my rifles back from Josh Newton!

I suck at pictures, but here's a pic of all three of them:



One Norinco 56S-1 Underfolder. I put the plum furniture on it a few months before I sent it to Josh, but it's always had some rust on it ever since I bought it.

Two Norinco NHM-91's. I bought one of them as my first AK, with a Choate buttstock and ATI forearm. The second one I picked up for a steal at a gun show about a year later.

The first one had a goofy rail on the dustcover, missing the original, so I picked up a pair of ribbed dustcovers for both of them. K-Var plum furniture and an RSA FCG in both, along with a Bulgarian windage-adjustable rear sight.



Josh did all the 922(r) conversion work on the NHM's, and refinished all three rifles into a completely badass matte black GunKote. He blackened the carriers, which just adds to the overall package.

The NHM's don't have anything on the muzzle, yet, but I'm debating a Phoenix hider for the both of them - we'll see.

THANK YOU, JOSH!

Those look very nice. How much did it cost per gun to refinish? Can he work with already assembled pieces (your parts kit installed onto your receiver) or is it better to send them in disassembled?

Gosh that underfolder looks nice.

I'll let Josh post here on pricing. I don't know if he'll be accepting any new work or not - hopefully, once things get finished and squared away, he'll be able to do some more builds!

As far as partially assembled stuff, in the past, he's been great on just about anything - most partially built stuff ends up being cheaper for you, if he doesn't have to do the work.

Mine arrived the other day, but the exporter forgot to put holes in the crate.

Looks like more fertilizer for the garden. hinking.gif

Got to see kythri's rifles in person yesterday, very nice.

It looks like the one at the bottom has an RPK reciever, didn't know they came that way.

Nice rifles!

Bad picture, it's a shadow/reflection.

Straight AKM-style receiver.

Yes, you need better pics.

The plum furniture and day desert camo just... clashes.

Sorry about that, Carson Kressley.
