Default Stained my AK stock. What you guys think?

I havenít seen anyone with this color before. I did an OK kind of job on this
Someone with more experience with wood staining would do a much better job

But at the end of the day itís just an AK.

Plz give me your feedback. Much appreciated

It's different. Not bad - I'd rock it.

Green furniture isnít a new thing on an AKM or a 74, there just isnít a lot of it out there.
Kinda looks like the green furniture used with the Soviet border guards rifles. Nice job.

Looks more bluish green, like an aqua color to me.


Aquaman rocks an AK.


1.) Because he knows his firearms and a little rust won't hurt it.

2.) And also because talking to fish to help you " fight crime " is about as effective as it sounds.



I think your end result looks great and it definitely won't be confused with anyone else's standard brown, blonde or Russian-red wood stocked AK at the range

Those are later examples. The early green stuff was a bakelite type material, IIRC. Like this.

Anyone remember how much that green Bakelite furniture set ended up selling at Gunbroker? The one and only set I’ve seen in the US.
