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.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 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.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 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....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.
Chas how is the cheek weld with that stock?Here's mine, I just finished it and it waits for a day at the range..
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=587What kind of recoil pad is that? Thanks
