Here's a second attempt to post a pic. It's not AK or even AR related but it's cool anyway.




edited; Daughter was uncomfortable with her pic on the net, so I changed to this one. It's the inside of a B-17 looking forward towards the bombadiers postition.

There have been 24 views here, I think I had 10 or so trying to figure things out.

Can you guys see the pics or are they red X's. Help me out guys, what do you see?

Thanks for the reply amigo.

Actually the wood looked like it was shaped with a chunk of cinder block. I did sand it down with 100 grit and then restained it and it came out a whole lot better.

How many rounds is that magazine?
Link Posted: 10/27/2003 1:14:23 AM EDT
I see two pictures and one red X.

That looks like a 40 round mag.

one SAR and one B17 pic is what i see.

nice quality pics BTW. what cam are you using?
Link Posted: 10/27/2003 11:38:47 AM EDT
Yes, that is the 40 rd mag that came with the rifle.

The one red x beside the AK pic is something I could edit out of the address I'm sure.

I'm using a HP 215. It's something like a 1.3 meg camera with a fixed lens around $130 or so. Not a real bad little camera, but it ain't nothing special.

Thanks for the responses guys. Hunting Pictures (Hunt101) new format is real easy to use. Even I figured it out.

Here's a pic of the SAR-1 with the refinished wood. I sanded it down with 100 grit, no reason to get too carried away, it's only an AK , and stained the wood with Tru-Test Cherrywood stain and Fromby's Low Gloss Tung Oil, because that's what I had on hand.

Nice pictures. Usually, at least on my computer, when someone has a picture of their rifle its so dark that I have to download it then brighten it up to see it. Yours looks real nice. Also nice AK. Was wanting to get a SAR-1 sometime soon. If you got it from a dealer which one did you get it from. From looking around I see 2 possibilities; either Atlantic Firearms or Aim look like good choices.

Thanks Alpo.

Always use a flash, even if outside. Most people don't understand the idea. In fact, that is the north side of the fence, in the middle of the day.

I bought the gun from my local dealer who had several in stock. The rifle and box both say Century, of course, but I have no idea where he bought them.

Pretty wood. I'll send you mine and let you refinish them too....

Here's mine w/refinished wood and Duplicolor 1200degree engine paint.

Man, that turned out sweet gotm4!

Very nice.

Very nice indeed. What color did you use on the metal? It looks shiny in the picture.

It's Dupli-Color black DH1602 HIGH HEAT Ceramic 1200 degree. It's a little shiny but not too bad. The can has a black lid with white letter and the can is burnt orange in color. I got it at WalMart. The finish looks just like the Siaga AKs.
