Great tutorial. After reading it I cancelled my order for some tapko plastic furniture and decided instead that wood is the way to go. Man that stuff when cleaned up looks really great. I will leave the plastic for the magpul furniture on my AR's. I am totally new to AK's but it seems like a lot of good stuff to do here and much more detailed than with AR's.
This is the kit I just purchased from AKbuilder. I cant tell if the pistol grip is wood or plastic, if plastic I'll just buy a wooden one. I'm off to Walmart now to get all the items listed in your tutorial. Thanks again!!
