Nice job Dave. That stock looks way better than I thought it would turn out  thumb1 Definitely a bargain paratrooper acquisition.
Thank you!  I'm gonna do at least 3 coats.  I'm not in some great hurry, things are progressing,  I believe it'll darken up a bit more with the linseed oil.  I gave all the metal parts the once over today and all that is ready! I got a new Butt plate coming in and I'll put this one aside and bead blast it at a later date.  thumb1  I'm a bit excited on this one.  I got a Garand match on Wednesday afternoon which I'm kinda bummed because it's gonna take some time away from this!  Oh well...  :(

Cuz getting stabbed with a softened steel bayonet would be нет проблем  :o rofl

Laugh, the laws don't have to make sense! 

The morbidly curious side of me wonders how much force is actually needed to get an SKS bayo through heavy outwerwear, but then the pragmatic side of me realizes I really don't want to know! :P

I "wish"!  :o. I'm a fair shooter but not that good!  No, my local gun club has several different matches through the winter months, our evening .22 matches start at 6pm and the 100/200 yard Garand matches start at 4 pm.  We have "Hunting rifle matches",  Mauser matches, (I shoot those as well)  AR matches, etc...  All to keep folks occupied through the season.  thumb1

I'm on the Board of directors of my club and here, in the Communist Socialist Republic of New Jersey, Everything is above board here and our club has lots of activities.  We also have every Tuesday and 3rd Thursday Trap nights,  Public pistol nights once a week and a cowboy (3 gun shoot) once a month.   8).   Our club has been around since after WWII.  We are lucky that we have a small community and everything is well planned.  We are also an NRA sanctioned range/club.  Here in NJ, if you don't have the "47 things you need to have a gun"  rofl2 chuckles1 Besplode ,  YOU don't come in!!!

The final results are in;  Some may like it, some won't, I actually grew fond of the "blond" color so I shifted gears in the refinishing process.  What you are seeing is 1 coat of Boiled Linseed oil, dried 24 hrs, and 2 coats of Minwax "warm gloss" fast drying clear coat.  I managed to get 2 coats on yesterday before my match, it dried in my cabinet, 76ļ and 40% humidity.  I got it back together a few minutes ago.   It's completely set dry.  I'm not going to handle it much for now, but snapped some pics, back in the vault it goes.  I'm overall happy with the results, I'll see how it shoots tomorrow or Saturday.   :).

My Avatar is a pic of the real "Ghost" SKS in honor of xxxsks(joe). It is a pic of a fully decked out SKS in Capco hunter's kit. This was mine, the only other pic I had ever seen of one was Joe's.

Nice save and great job on the refinish. Overall great deal on the Para!

Were you able to widen the bayo groove on the stock? The difference in width of the short para-style bayo's will need the slot in the stock widened to let the bayo fit flush into the stock.

I did not, when I cut the bayonet at 8", it was about 3/8" long so when I tapered the tip, it's smooth enough that it sits on the edge of the cut out and the tri-point fits up inside the groove.  It seem's a bit unorthodox but it worked.  You can see it from the pics.   I know it's not the "correct" way but I has did the refinish first and it was an after thought.  :-[    I'm gonna leave it alone, it works.  thumb1
