    well i got chewed out and have been in the dog house since i sold her 10/22 a couple of years ago... So I'm in the middle of building a romy AK47 for her... just got the receivers for both her's and my build but I've spent the last week and a half working on jus the furniture...

    and yes that is the stock romy furniture... with alot of work into them, i cut the forearm handle off and sanded it down and then found some 1/4" thick plywood to make the bulge on the sides and now I'm in the process of putting on about 10 coats of polyurethane. with red dye mixed in... couple more coats and I'm done with it.

    Real nice looking - it's always amazing to me how well these "junky" AK stocks turn out when they get cleaned-up and refinished.

    ETA: I didn't notice at first that you added palm swells with plywood. That's just extra cool.

    Definitely! Looking good there. Also looks like a lot of time is going into it and she "should" appreciate that at least. :p

    Just be thankful your wife likes guns. Seems like everytime I want a new gun I have to let her get a new animal. I now have a petting zoo at my house but at least I am starting to get a nice collection.
