I found it for sale as well now. I hear that some later aks have laminated stocks. If so, we could probably replicate almost exactly with an added aftermarket grip by doing .. I think it is called better blond, it is a white tinted water based stain first, then laying the black stain on the laminated stock, wipe quickly and firmly and it should work.

The store did not have any wood that was useful. I am bleaching some narsty ak furniture right now but that isn't going to be blacked. Here are the pine images though. Just a quicky.

The rippling in the final pic is because this is just a raw 2x4 scrap which is rippled. Otherwise the finish comes out nicely with light dark. A white tining pre-treat would probably wrap up the deal on a real laminate stock that has been properly cleaned.

...but their exists also in the human heart a depraved taste for equality, which impels the weak to attempt to lower the powerful to their own level, and reduces men to prefer equality in slavery to inequality with freedom.
