Default redonging

[IMG][/IMG] Fitted new to Svetlana. Romanian handguards swapped at the Goldendale range trip. The lower had the dong cut off. Had one last Russian bakelite grip left, gave the dong back. Kinda fun project. 1/4 ' stainless all thread (leftover from a barrel install. drilled thru lower, threaded a plate on the inside, checked barrel fit, installed. Only 1/4 nut in the house was a
chopper piece. Metal is stripped of paint, got carried away with post range cleaning, 110 gasoline in a drain pan. Mag is an E German, harbor freight buffing and rouge kit is responsible for the bare metal. Anyone else Re Dong their Rifles?

Handles wicked cool. my neighbor frank was grinning when he had a hold of both grips. I have one factory stock machine, the V star Yamaha 650. Every other firearm/vehicle/boat/dwelling in my life has been custom fit to my body. Very rare off the shelf will live up to "one size fits all' Resale value? an old used car salesman I worked with for while told me " There Is An Ass For EVERY Seat" Hal Corbin, had a bluebird tattoo between thumb and index. Rented garage space from him for a winter in homer , Ak, coal heat, found better spot ASAP.. Cool cat tho. Ended up crew on a boat he sold to my skipper, "The Northern Flyer" Had an Air cooled Duetz Diesel for propulsion. S L O W , had to time your trips with the tides, they really rip it up around the Kennedy Entrance, Between Kodiak Island, And Homer. It is sighted in with that scope real good now. The Glass was def needed, 100 yard 6"grouping is again the norm. Really dig target shooting, been at it since age 12. still a kick.

The Handgurds needed some fitting, the Hungy retainer is a bit different shape. Small files, patience. Top hand guard rolled in pretty as you please. Finished by sanding off the varnish/shellac to bare wood, then 1/3 turpentine2/3 BLO with paint brush. wipe down with a rag after an hour or two. let dry overnite, Then Carnuba Wax the whole shiteree, metal wodd, everything except the sling. Waterproof, ez as fuck to wipe clean, smells good, the pure carnuba. The turps thins the BLO, and helps it penetrate I believe. Solid surplus, no rot, or other jankiness. Still have to work out the cleaning rod clearance. work in progress. As consciousness changes, so does our surroundings, associates and friends, and possessions. Have a feeling this one will be a bit bizarre when I get thru with her.

And oh yeah - I did a little fitting to that Lower tonight to make it fit a bit tighter, added an AK74 spring clip. Not the prettiest but I can clean it up later.

I'll never understand why so many of these handguards were mutilated in the first place.

Super solution to the problem of overheating and comfortable to hold.
