    Here’s one I recently got together. I need to get a U.S. muzzle break for it. It was a fun build – pretty much fell together. 1971 Romanian. The shellac on all of the furniture was peeling badly so I stripped it, gave the wood a quick coat of stain to re-hit the highlights that had been dulled by stripping the shellac, and then put a rub-on poly on it (about 4 coats total). Now I just need to get the barreled receiver parked and gunkoted a nice black to match the rest of it.

    Was built on a NDS receiver. Love those things!

    Nice job! And you're got a brand new Russian double-hook sling on it. That's the way to do it.
