    here is a preview of my work in progress on one of my Mosin 91/30 rifles. the stain is cherry blossom and is a nice shade of pink. right now its got 2 cots of finish with the third drying. the pics are just at the 2 coat stage. all metal fittings are currently removed.

    pink is my favorite color.

    i was looking for a russian red type stain and they had a sample of cherry blossom and i had to go with it.

    You monster, how could you! (JK :D)

    It looks pretty good. It will turn a lot of heads at the range.

    i WAS going to do it to my pu sniper but decided it was better on a regular mosin. i want to redo my sniper stock but i want this colour on this guy's psl

    this project is more of a test of how well i can do it. the wood is so dry and old it was hard to get stain to take. some parts just wouldnt take any stain at all.

    You've got to admit, a pink Nagant still looks better then a pink AR. :D

    A dark pink could look pretty good on that PSL.

    I like pink as much (or more) than the next heterosexual male, but I am not a fan of pink guns. The Mosin is surely unique, though. I really like the plum PSL though. That is pretty cool looking.

    At first I get a chuckle when I hear Jon talking about pink on his guns, but then I get a look at your Mosin and she sure looks good. That PSL looks damn fine too ;)

    The PSL is more appealing in color to me, but the Mosin does have a striking look to it.
