Marco,

That looks great! How did you make it?

I had some Oak paneling left from an office job that I thinned/guaged for the grips. I used a friends shoe repair machines to prep shape and contour. I used JB Weld to bond. I used a shoe finisher to
do the rest. I owned my own Shoe Repair for many years and the finisher is perfect for the job.

The fine belt and Numkeg smoothed and the buffer and horse hair brush took most of the scratches out of the block. I then used regular glycerin based sole stain ! Lol, it was the perfect color tone and you can control the depth/darkness of the stain by allowing it to heatup on the buffer and brush.

At home I masked and sprayed the block with a heavy duty acrylic.

It was fun. I'll post a pick on the weapon in the next day or so.

The flash and light dont do the color justice when you see it in natural light. The color is ruddier.
But Im pleased with how it turned out. It was fun

Thanks. I saw someone do the same over some Makarov grips that gave me the idea.

I like the Bulgarian FH too. Some will say slant only on an an AK but I think it looks good.
And it does work well.

Yeah I like the Buglarian FH also. It just looks cool on there.



Did you do anything to your HGs to get them to look that good?

Most cynics/purists accept the Bulgarian flash hider versus, let's say...an AK74 brake. Specifically on a 7.62 weapon. Unless, of course, you've got an AK-103. That's the only example of a .30 caliber AK where the '74 styled brake is at home.

I agree. There were many getting adapters from where/whom I bought it from.
