Back when I was young and foolish, seven years ago (or maybe yesterday), I took a bubba'd Russian, and bubba'd it some more.
There were still quite a few East German parade stock blanks floating around, so I used some ingenuity, and a lot of grinding, sanding, buffing and refinishing to make a pure fantasy East German parade piece.
The Russian gun already had the high polished receiver cover, bolt handle and bayonet. But I can take credit for the pimp shine on the stock.
Masterpiece? Or mutilation? Both, I reckon. But dang, it's a looker.
