    Wow, that lighter finish really looks good. Got any pics of the whole rifle?

    I have to admit, when I first bought these Romanian parts kits, I wasn't too crazy over the pistol grip/handguard and planned on replacing them. I was just using the set for refinish practice. After handling it and seeing all these refinished stocks, I'm getting to like it. Now I really need to get going on the receiver so I can actually use it as intended.

    Funny thing--Several years back it seemed I couldn't get the wood vertical front grip for love or money; so they were in great demand. Now people cut them off.

    Of course, I also must confess being willing to die for that incredibly cool----AMD65!!!

    Knowing I'll always want what I don't have lets me be happy with what I can get now.

    Man these look really nice. Can't wait to start refinishing mine!

    Watjr, you actually don't twist the metal, but you hold either the wood or metal gas tube and rotate the other. Best to use a crescent wrench or channel lock pliers to hold the RSB-end of the metal. It can be a real tight fit, so what I normally do is clamp the RSB end in the vise and rotate the wood right off. The wood will rotate 180 degrees, then you can pull it off.

    WinnR, I love the job you did on the Rommy wood.



    I also like the red Russian finish. I plan to duplicate yours on my latest Romanian. Funny, I tried the latest Romanian handguards in place of the E. German plastic on my I/O underfolder build of last year. Of course the front pistol grip fits the wrong way for my underfolder. Looks like I too am looking for something I don?t have ? a front handguard with the pistol grip facing backward to clear the underfolder.
