Hand select Hungarian SA85 Kit from Centerfire Systems on a Global reciever,I wanted to retain the original finish so I did a quick bake job to the reciever.

Damn nice! Which baking lacquer did you use? I bought a SA85M new in '94, and recently put on a pistol grip and buttstock, along with a slant brake. If FEG would make an RPK-based Drag, think of the quality and how it would shoot.

Thanks 1saxman,I was just experimenting with the paint to match the original finish and baked on a thin coat of high temp BBQ grill paint and it turned out a little too flat.So I used a semi gloss over the top of that while the reciever was still hot.I let it cure for a couple months before the build and its turned out to be pretty tough.

Is that the standard leather Hungarian sling? If it is, how do you like it?

Shane,yes this is the original leather sling,I have a new one but I really like the look and feel of the old worn sling!
