    Default My 1st Underfolder build (pic)

    Been sitting on these parts since June when I picked'em up from
    AkronArmory. Polish AKMS. It finally came together and I feel like it's my best
    effort thus far. Coldsteel receiver (they make a Polish UF blank)
    in .40 is superb.

    Wood was bleached and stained in Rit dye mix, then coated in
    minwax golden pecan until intensity was where I liked it.
    More fun than chokin' on oysters.

    The kit was so super. the finish was 99.99% so I just painted the
    receiver with the Duplicolor Hi-temp ceramic 1200 degree stuff
    and baked it on with the front trunnion installed only.

    Did the rest of assembly after the paintjob.
