Here she is with her .308 sisters.
What color stain did you use to refinish the stock? Or is it a lot of coats of amber shellac? Looks like you got a great match with the Vepr handguard. I love those wood handguards. I left them on my 308's. along with an adjustable polymer stocks on a couple of them. Try to take some pics sometime. Bought my first 308 in Dec. Now I have four! Love shooting them.

I used three coats of straight Boiled Linseed Oil.
I put it on heavy and rubbed it in with a lint free rag, dry 24 hours and repeat.

Got the new 30-06 30rd mags in yesterday
Found some cheap mag pouches to use to carry spare mags
the East German grenade pouch carries 2x5rd and 2x10rd
the Hungarian tanker pouch carries 2x 20rd
I keep the 30rd on the rifle

TOURBON Leather Buttstock Cheek Rest with Rifle Shell Holder on Amazon.

The muzle brake really helps I had an extended 2.5 inch bird cage before, worked well for flash suppression but had had harsh recoil with 208gr loads

Nice to see familiar names almost everywhere I go in firearms forums.
Damn shame what Obummer did to that site with the Ban. True it was slowing down, but he killed it.

Cool unique paint job there Pyzik.

I wouldn't even know where to begin to do something like that.

Now get the barrel shroud cuf off, and thread the barrel
Amazon and get yourself a 14x1 LH cutting die
Home Depot, get a Ridgid tubing cutter (best quality blades) and cutting oil from Plumbing aisle.
Ebay, grab a $20 muzzle brake.

You can always borrow a die handle from the big box stores or auto parts store if you dont' have one.

Hell, depending on DOM he could get lucky like I was and have a threaded barrel.

It's out of stock at Legion so no price listed.





I had a buddy modify a Vepr stock with a cheek riser for my Saiga ver.21, took it from a scoped PITA to a joy to shoot.

Finally found the receipt from Legion. $430 for the furniture set. Now I remember why I hid it.

Can I pay your guy to do the same to my stock set?

Here's a couple of my fully converted IZ139 I did back in '13, IIRC.












My newest acquisition is a IZ114, this will be fully converted later this year when I take a break. This will be a full on AK101 or 102 clone side folder, haven't decided yet.
