    great work there.

    Thumbs up

    Excellent build. Very very nice finish on that.

    Looks very nice and appears to be a shooter too! I like the way the selector lever and top cover are a darker shade, really sets it off.

    Nothing like a good old standard 74...certainly my favorite Kalashnikov, and one of my favorite rifles, period.

    Thanks, guys!

    I had the plum stockset temporarily installed on some different builds, but I think it has found a permanent home on the '74.

    As far as the finish goes, I wanted something with a low sheen, something between flat and semi-gloss. The color difference on the sheet metal parts was kind of a last minute deal, as I wanted a little contrast for detail. In real life, the difference is a little more subtle than it appears in the photo.

    Close to 300 rounds fired so far and it hasn't skipped a beat.

    My wife would never let me cook in her oven, so I usually just use spray paint.. or I have a buddy who will ceramic coat them for a fee.. spray paint is cheaper so I use it.. I've found ace brand enamal black with the fan tip works really great, it looks exactly the same a factory enamal paint on the Bulgarian 74.. The home depot black auto primer is a very tough under coat also, if you need to spay that first, it is tough even actone has a hard time removing it.. B2B
