Yup, she looks great. You said bolt change. Is this a new source for parts or a one-time find? I get quite a bit of messaging for parts. Have you found an outlet for spares that we need to post?

Forgive me but what scope (and mount system) is that and I also would like to know about the bolt..is it stainless or just polished or what?
Heck, for that matter where did you get a laminate extended buttstock?

Sorry, no secret spare part outlet that I'm keeping to myself... the bolt is a product of a good 'ole polishing. The wood is a regular stock replacement that I refinished to my taste with a coat of tung oil for the finish.

The scope is a 8X42 POSP with weaver,

with a low-profile sidemount...

But before you do anything.... I have not tried these optics and mount out enough to say they are solid. As you can see in one of the pictures, I still keep the 4X POSP that came with this rifle around because I know it holds tight. Right now I guess you could say the optics set-up is just for show since there has been no extensive testing to see if it holds zero.

The laminated buttstock is not extended in any way, its just a regular buttstock that I have refinished. This was the first time I have had this one out in a long time, last time it saw this mutch light, it was still in its original configuration. I also took some pics of the rest of my collection too on this thread >

I think I have seen your picture before so there might have been some inspiration taken from it.

On the wood, I used some ridiculously dark stain. I think with the combination of not sanding 100% of the lacquer off and application of the dark stain, I got these uneven and highlighted areas that I absolutely love. I think it gives it the "been there, done that" look to it. I also have a buttpad like yours but I had such a hard time getting it on the other stock I refinished, I'm not taking it off and putting it on this one.

So how did you get your bolt back to the white?

i used the birchwood casey blueing removal, and a dremel tool for touchup work. I don't baby this rifle so the furniture is a little more beatup now and the upper handguard cracked (you can see in the picture). The wood was way too brittle to try and fix aside from a re-gluing attempt.

the heat caused some bubbling in the finish, also. no biggy for me, she shoots great. 2000 rounds later, she is a pleasure to interact with.

Chasdev- Nice stock! I wish I would have gotten the scope you have instead of the setup I have. Yours seems more solid. Want to trade? (j/k)

requiem- these rifles aren't for babying... I like your style. Although I have less than 700 or so rounds through mine. Looking forward to the day I have more than 2000. I've only had it for 1 year.

I would highly recommend you try and get that recoil buffer bad on your PSL. it makes a world of difference. Mine was tough to get on, but it was worth it. It also adds another inch to an otherwise short stock.

My last PSL (Romak III really) I used a shotgun slipon recoil pad.
It looked like ass but it was under $10 and worked like a dream.

I did the same thing... one of those hideous rubbery brown ones, adds about an inch to the thing and kills any recoil there would be. I do want a different muzzle brake though....

What kind of recoil pad is that? Thanks

I believe it's used on some type of AK grenade launcher. I got mine from this place http://dscarmsinc.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=52_150&products_id=587

To install, I sprayed mine liberally with silicone spray. Then partially worked it on to the buttplate. Finally, place the butt of the PSL on a hard floor and press down. Worth the $$$ as others have said both for recoil reduction and additional LOP.
