    Refinish of Yugo SKS M59/66

    So I bought this yugo (with all matching #'s) at a good price. Came with black side-folder stock and original furniture. I sanded down the wood with 220grit, stained it, then polyeurathaned it with semi-gloss. I then sanded with 320grit 3 times and poly in between each sanding. My last sanding was some 0000 steel wool and a final coat of poly. This is my first time refinishing a gun stock. I am happy with it. I didn't sand all the way down b/c I wanted to keep some of the minor nicks and scratches in it. I did send the firing pin and bolt off to a smith to have a Murray's SKS firing pin installed. Of course I kept all the original pieces. The firing pin was all I replaced. I bought a Yugoslavian SKS sling for it. Also took sovietak474u's video about paint filling and filled in the grenade launcher sight with white paint. Like I said this is my first time buying a used gun that needed some work. It was fun though. I know the russian sks's are more coveted, but I like the Yugo for the grenade launcher and the bayonet. Hope you guys like it, let me know what you think? If you don't like it, bugger off. LOL. Thanks

    I appreciate it. It's the paint my wife uses to paint the french manicure stuff on her nails. Worked just as good. Couldn't find the paint pens sovietak47 used any where in Alpharetta.
