Tumtatty,

You won't believe me, but....

I use an abbrasive cloth from 3M. It has a grit of like 200-300. Basically its cloth sand paper. Sounds ridiculous huh? It works perfect, and being a cloth it bends around the rifle very well. You can pick one up at Lowe's for 10 bucks or less in the sandpaper section.

Using that cloth and some of Birchwood Casey's rebluing I can make almost any parts aesthetically match. Just takes a little TLC, and it works like a charm on any of your Russian Captures. It would probably work very well on a stock, too if you wanted some light sanding. Namely you could get into the bolt inlet without rounding the nice sharp edges. Haven't tried that though.
I actually have some of that in my shop! Thanks!!

I have a butt plate and takedown disc that have been buffed out. Have you ever done anything to get them to look more worn in appearance?

THanks!
