My favorite is the H&K with the wooden butt-stock, and the wooden fore-grip.
An excellent SHTF gun. Apart from an AK-47/AK-74

I purchased a G3 wood furniture kit for one of my 91's a few months ago. I'm 1/2 through on the refinishing. That wood G3 look is really awesome, for sure.

Here's a few pics of my HK91 w/ G3 wood furniture. This a one of those "other" projects that took time during my Mosin rebuild. This was completed last Dec.

The wood kit I received for this was pretty dank, dark & dirty but it didn't have any dents or scratches. It took a lot of cleaning, sanding and more cleaning to get the semi blonde look. Tung oil finish on this one took me just over a week to achieve, the photos don't do it justice.

My current projects are:

*TGI Bulgy AK74 - switching from synthetic plum to hardwood furniture & refinishing to a nice deep, dark Russian red.

*Arsenal SLR95 conversion - debanning and wood furniture refinishing to her former glory. Waiting on the wood to arrive. This is how she is right now...

*1986 Romy G kit build - got the new receiver and meeting my gunsmith today for the installation of the front & rear trunnions. This will be an unfinished furniture build, I won't refinish anything on this one. It'll be my thrasher AK47. I might put a donkey dick forearm lower hand guard on this one, still debating this idea...your thoughts??

*Saiga AK47 - This will be a conversion with wood furniture installed and some minor improvements.
No photos yet on this.


I think that about covers it.....for now.

Nice collection, Sleep Dirt. I'd love to build a few on my own too
(Seems I need to leave Germany for good some day^^)
Though I have to say, that Grey paint on the HK looks...hm, odd. Should be black. (and why is there a AK74 flashhider on it )

Speaking of AKs
As the original Grips are too small for my Hands, I decided to make one myself:

http://www.bild.me/bild.php?file=4590862IMG_1272.JPG

http://www.bild.me/bild.php?file=2199920IMG_1273.JPG

As it turned out pretty neat, I think i will just give it a coat of clear paint to preserve it. (Rest of the gun is going to get a paint job soon, Dark Earth/Field Drab/Tan or maybe Olive Drab, haven't finally decided yet^^)

And now for something completely different :
One of my actual projects, a Roman "Ringknaufschwert" WIP

Ja, I love the HK Grey myself. That is some very nice work on that pistol grip. You could sell those!
And that Ringknaufschwert is absolutely wicked scary!


BTW...
"and why is there a AK74 flashhider on it )" .....That's because it's a Bulgarian AK74.
Where do you see HK grey paint on?

I meant the HK91, the first picture shows it with a AK muzzlebrake. At least it looks like one, it's definitively not the Standard flashhider normally found on an G3.

Ahhh, that one. The previous owner installed that on it and I'm looking to replace it with a standard "birdcage" type soon. It does look like the AK74 brake.

Ah, alright. In general it isn't a bad idea as the brake is quite effective, but it should be properly aligned then

Thanks I actually thought about that. What do you think, what would be a reasonable pricing for a grip like that?

Vike,
I saw a fellow selling some "custom" AK pistol grips for $35.
www.akfiles.com
The ad is in the "marketplace" section under the thread "WTS: Wood AK Grips".
This will give you an idea/good starting point.
Good Luck
