Here she is in all her glory. It is the 54R version with a 23" barrel, and a 6-24X50 scope.

Man I cant wait to go shooting.

Thinking about this handguard (down about 3/4 of the page)

Yeah Cadre, the furniture is beautiful. My other thought is to stain it a darker amber cherry like the traditional AK color.

Thanks Cadre, I like that :) I also like the closing off of the thumbhole stock, I may look into that.

Looks good, but I think you need a bigger scope :p

It was a $120 gun show special, I made a thread trying to ID it.

Lets hope it holds zero.

Very nice rifle. All you need to do is plug the thumbhole and you can get rid of that bullet button. I did that on mine. While it is not ideal shooting it freehand is as comfortable as any of my AR's.

Give us a range report after you get some rounds downrange.

Or get a Tiger Dragunov stock :)
