Nice work N.M.A. Welcome to the forum. Looks like you had a pretty nice rifle to work with. You matched the stocks very well.

There is really no "secret" to good stock refinishing. Your prep work is key to any good looking stock refinishing job in my opinion. I've litterally spent days getting my stocks to the point were they are ready for the first coat of stain or BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil)..

Nice job, I like the rosewood look on an AK.

How much you wanna sell me that bayonet for? lol
I cant for the life of me find a black type 2 bayonet like that one.
