    never thought i would be using 'pretty' and 'AK' in the same sentence. But alas, that is probably the prettiest AK I have ever seen!

    I never though I would prefer the look of an AK to that of an M1A! LOL I think the duck is on my side...

    Beautiful AK, and lawn:)

    The only gun I've refinished is a CZ27 WWII bring back. Looked pretty nasty after sitting in a leather holster for 60yrs, so I reparkerized it.

    I'm really happy about the way that AK turned out. It started as a Romanian G kit That I sent to Darrel Storm to build for me. He shot it out of a metal rest and sent the target back to me. It shoots just a smig over MOA. The green and brown finish was done by Mac at Mac's Restorations (Shootiniron@WIFI4you.US). I bought the Maple quilted burl on Ebay, and sent it to Scott Murphy at Gripsandstocks.com. He made the set of furniture and used an oil finish. The flash hider is a Phantom(Cope's) and the scope mount is a low mount Belarus. The high mount puts your face up to high for any cheek weld on the stock, but to low mount works great. All and all, everybody that worked on this AK did a super job. I like nice looking, as well as nice shooting guns, so I think the money spent on this one was well worth it.:evil: My wife will beg to differ.:eek:

    My Beowulf came out nice when it was done. The logo engraved on the receiver is cool.

    My Ruger 10/22 after a week of rain and a couple cans of krylon.

    And my Taurus 85 after half a can each of mothers mag and billet polishes, not a rifle, but a custom (or at least altered) finish.

    Romanian AES-10B. PKM bipod replaced with RPK bipod, steel was parkerized and wood refinished with tung oil. BSW

    Overall.
