    Well, I ordered an unfinished Ironwood Designs stock set for my SLR 95, Kusmi Amber button shellac from Wellermart, and some “reddish brown” transtint along with denatured alcohol.
    Come early March, the project will begin I’d imagine.

    Damn those are cool. I keep getting tempted with the Classic Firearms $299.99 Chi-Com SKS deal but always seem to talk myself out of it.

    Actually a good deal. Just do it. You can always flip it and break even if you find out it ain't your thing later.

    Battlefield pickup from 18'. Sights are dead one and keeps on ticking. Just put 17 mags (510rds) thru it Sunday and had the handguards smoking after 4 quick mag dumps. Don't shoot that early flat side mag as there is a dent in it that stops rounds. Sling was a NIW Soviet marked.

    Man that is just unreal. Always feels so cliché to say, but the stories that thing could tell...

    Thanks for sharing, @Combat Diver. I always look forward to your posts. Stay safe.

    Not quite sure when it happened, but at some point I guess I became an Arsenal fanboy...

    Just snatched up this nearly new SAM7R - bolt and carrier look immaculate; allegedly it has two mags through it from the original owner who bought it at K-VAR.

    $900 out the door. Not too shabby!

    Likewise! My rifle will look a bit funky, as the turd original owner boogered the SAM's sling clip and handguard retainer to fit the rail (hence the better price for me), but I have a replacement milled retainer on the way and will press everything off and on in due time.

    Never understood why companies make products that force you to permanently alter the gun.

    Can't wait to see yours!

    Did you replace the retainer? Or have you ever tried the Dinzag or other bolt-on retainers? I looked at a few of those and would prefer steel over aluminum, but they just look kinda funky to me.

    I ended up selling it before I fixed it, mistake there.
    But, I tried an aluminum bolt on retainer on my Saiga and I didn’t like it. Always came loose when it heated up, though Dinzag says that won’t happen with their version.

    After I installed a real retainer, I installed the new gas block and front sight on the Saiga with a big hammer without damaging anything :D

    Last teaser! This is the difference of two coats at whole tint value. The crappy cell phone pics don’t really show the real color. Tomorrow, I believe, will be assembly day. I’m going to post a dedicated thread to the work in progress!

    Again, this hard work pays off 100%.

    Alright bro I hope this sparks a fire under my ass. Been dealing with COVID-19 stuff for weeks now at work, clocking 16+ hour days seven days a week and drinking all the whiskey in my free time. SO ... I need to find a good workshop distraction at some point.

    Let's call it the KOVID-47 bug.

    Dang man! You need some unplugged time for sure! I’d say, when time allows, to just go for it! I hope that you find a moment to catch a breath!!

    Congrats on scoring one! Those are supposed to be good rifles from what I have seen from AKOU4774 and read about. Please let us know your impressions as well!! I’d love to add one to my collection when they become more available

    I took my favorite (though obnoxiously loud) fire-breathing autoloading kommie rifle out and banged some steel at 500 yards today.

    Another ruptured case ad this time broke the charging handle in half on the PKM Friday morning. No spare parts so wall hanger until another is captured. Still has a ruptured case in the barrel, hence need to beat charging handle to get stuck round out of chamber. Beating broke the charging handle :eek: Did get the stuck live round out later.
