    For the longest time I've been looking for a way to replace the black plastic hand guards on my M70. I found this set at Apex Gun Parts. THey where really cheap and they where in pretty rough shape soaked up with cosmoline and other nasty stuff. But with a bunch of degreaser, sanding, staining, Tru-Oiling, I finally got them to look OK. THey still have a few spots on them but I was not really trying to get them to look like a brand new set.

    They started out pretty much like this like this

    All in all I think they come out pretty well. And getting them for all of 20 bucks shipped mad it an inexpensive project.

    Nice work on those. A little elbow grease goes a long way.

    Thanks a lot, they come out pretty good. For the money and time I put into them I was very happy with how it come out. Finding wood for the M70 is a little difficult and can get pretty expensive. Two things that should not be dealt with when talking about an AK type weapon. At any rate it looks much better than the black plastic things that come on it.

    I'm sure RSG would like to see some improvement to his wood also.
