Ok, I decided I wanted a Battlefield Pick up Romy so I started working on it.... first with a wire brush...then with a chain...





Then me and Moonshiner got creative....



We thought it would be a good idea to see if an AK would stand up to being drug a few miles...





All was going well...then we lost our skier and had to go back and save it from being run over by another car...



So we rolled it over removed the bolt carrier, and top cover so we didn't rip the charging handle off.... And took off again!







Faster that time:D

Then when we got back into his yard, we put it back to there and drug it the rest of the 100yrds back to the shop and got it good and full of crap:)







After we hosed it out this is what it looked like:



Very Battlefield pick up look:D Oh yeah I finally got a Camera too!

Yep, that rifle is beat to shit ! It looks like it did 90mph cartwheels across the interstate. Wait.... it actually....did.... :lol:

Seriously, I *LOVE* the way that looks. Pictures don't really do it justice. It definately captures the "battlefield pickup" theme. It also poaches into the "run over by a brigade of tanks" theme.

This style beats the ever-lovin' shit out of the safe-queen AK. You've brought the true grizzly nature back to this AKM. People that take glamour shots of their AK's may as well put a ribbon in it's hair, with a sun-dress and some knickers. I fuckin' *HATE* that shit. This one looks like it still has its testicles in tact :)

No, that one is still packed safely in the grease in it box, lol. This kit I picked up for a song because the barrel pin was a bugger. So DPH(and some numbers) here is a little revenge for you!!! :D

She still runs too!

Don't forget to rub some black grease into the fresh spots on the furniture to give it an aged look. ;) Why did you take the snazzy winter forest cammo off:)

Looks more like "drug down the road behind a pickup on a chain" than Battlefield pick-up.......but it's your gun man, do whatever floats your boat.

Well for starters it is just an AK...a Romy at that! Had I not had several more that looks just like it I might not have done it:D

Far as looking like it got drug down a road...Yeah, but I am sure worse has happened in the field;)

And it shoots fine still this one just has more character than the rest, so no waste has gone on here!

OK - now that you did all that for COSMETIC PURPOSES - testicles or none - the $64,000 question is, does the weathering affect function? Does it still shoot and group?
That is what I would like to know also! Post some more of the night shot while fireing.
