    I'd try on chepe 22 or something befor I tri"d on a good gun. After I got the hang of it I'd do it.

    Check out nouglyguns.com for some pictures of rifles with this type of color scheme. You can get some good ideas, there.

    I did it with woodland camo tape on a Maddi with the flake off paint,after the tape falls off , I'll try Brownells spray and bake
    earth brown paint.could buy black and apply with brush for camo
    finnish, you can do it, but the paint stinks when baked.:nod:

    Don't talk to me with that jibber-jabber!

    PS- maybe the buttstock's varnish has solidified on the rear receiver tang...try a rubber mallet after you remove the pistol grip screw and the screw anchor.

    Did someone say BUTTstock?!!!

    We will have no more of that kind of language!

    One more time and I will have no choice but to take away your AK for a week!

    Tommy, there is two screws in the stock one is on the inside, you need to remove the recoil spring to see it...
