PATIENTLY WAITING FOR ME
« on: June 20, 2017, 07:21:55 PM »
The seller and I agreed to a price on this '70 Alby. All that's lacking is the hands on inspection. He done a good job of disclosing what he knows about it. We're several hundred miles apart, but we'll be doing a FTF, so it'll take some doing to coordinate, end of July. Until then here's his pictures. It's matching numbers, but has been refinished in some manner.   ::) PAX

I have never seen an Albainian with a rubber butt pad on the stock.  Is that normal?

Nice Albanian! 

Monkey...  Thats just an after market rubber deal that goes on over top the original plate.  Easy to take off.   thumb1

Refinished or not...that is a dang nice Albanian.

I gotta say, it is a first for me to see anyone extend anything on an Albanian.  chuckles1

Your patience to wait over a month is commendable.

That looks really sweet, nice matching numbers. The lower handguard looks different than my Albanians, it's more rounded off. It looks like the one on my buddy's Russian, but as I'm told, a Russian stock won't fit an Albanian.



Not mine, but this is basically what I'm talking about. That is a pretty neat find you have there.

Thanks Fellas,

JH, we've actually been going back and forth since mid May. I screwed up getting it last week because he has a Romy that I am interested in too, but couldn't get any picts of it until after his commute cycle.  :(. This go-round he's flying on his company's dime, hence the wait. PAX

The stock is an Albanian replacement, that of course has been refinished, if that matters.

The Albanians made replacement stocks that looked like that (short, rounded off lower end and dark colored) for their own rifles?

The Albanians made beech replacement stocks in a number of variations for standard blade and spike bayonet rifles and their own domestic  SKS.

The  variation pictured in the OP's pics has been refinished resulting in the very dark color we see.

The seller told me that it had been redone, and hence accepted my "beat down" offer. It's the cheapest of my 3 Albys so far, and helped to bring down the overall cost for them. Like I said before, he did a good job of disclosing what he knew. But considering it's 1 of not many, I jumped on it. Was cheaper than a Kali NORINCO  :) , plus I got a line on untouched furniture.  ;) PAX
