Default Refinishing AK47 Furniture Set

I purchased a surplus AK47 furniture set from a Calgunner with the intention of stripping and refinishing it. Planning on sanding/staining/finishing. This will be my first ak47 refinishing attempt but I have refinished other wood projects before. My roommate is going to supervise the project (he works for a well known guitar mfg and is very experienced with wood working).

I have most of the supplies I need (need to double check on the sealant) and should be receiving the last piece of the furniture (top handguard) in the next week or so.

I live about 10 minutes east of downtown SD if anybody is interested in refinishing their own set with me. Planning for a Saturday or Sunday late January/early February. Looking to achieve a color similar to the photo below. I live 1 mile from a Home Depot in case additional supplies are needed.

I have an old Mosin that I bet would look beautiful with that finish.

I'm thinking possibly weekend of Jan 28th or weekend of Feb 11th... pm me and we can work out a date that works for both of us...

I actually have two stock sets to work on so I might try and do one on my own beforehand so you can see the results and maybe take some lessons learned!
