God damn, dishwasher + tung oil > *
This thing looks amazing
Before for refrence:
You can't really tell how shiny it is in the forst pictures but it looks like some quality shit now
Nice. That looks great. Its funny, that SKS is older than most of this forums posters and looks brand spanking new.
I've been wanting to do the dishwasher method with my original 10/22 stock just to try it out.
The wood expanded a tiny, tiny bit. Now there is actually no play in the parts when I put it back together. When it came out of the dishwasher it looked like a brand new piece of wood with no color at all. I will now throw every c&r rifle I get in the dishwasher it worked so good
just get the cosmo out first
I've seen a lot of people using the dishwasher method and I'm not sure I'm sold on it. I sort of liken it to people using oven cleaner to remove their finishes. While these methods are both quick and easy, I think that you could be doing potential damage to the future of the wood.
With that said I may try this with a Yugo SKS that I just picked up. But there's no way I'm going to use water on my RC K98 or one of my K31's I need to refinish.
man that thing looks good. i've never seen a sks that i'd like to have but i would like yours
I did with a steamer
i might go pick one up tomorrow, i hope i can get it to look as good as yours
interordnance.com is where I got mine
looks good man, I wish mine looked like that
Yeah that's where I recieved my unissued Yugo as well. I had to have the stupid California muzzle put on if i wanted the rifle. I/O was the only place that would sell me a 59/66 with my C&R FFL.
bookmarked, but a local place had one for 120 last week, now he wants 150 for it.
damn that looks good, I'm going to have to try that with mine.
They were $135 a few months ago when I got mine
