Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

WASR 10 Furniture Swap

#1 Post by ffuries » Thu Nov 07, 2019 4:34 pm

I wanted it to represent what the bad guys were carrying before I retired. Picture taken before I gave her a complete wipe down and put back into the closet. I think she looks better now.

The handguards were easy as pie, the buttstock gave me a run for my money.Took an hour to get the buttstock off. Even with being careful, going slow and only using my hands and I still managed to break a small chip out of it. I'll glue the chip back tomorrow and set it aside to dry. 

The old stock will be stored away, and will go with the gun whether it's sold off or passed on to one of the kids.

Before and after pictures of her.

Bingo I agree, the only thing I didn't swap out was the pistol grip. The hole in the milsurp one is smaller than the one in the US made one. So I think I would have to get a different screw to do that.

Picked up the 4 piece furniture set from Atlantic Firearms.

Nice.
My mom's bf has an Egyptian maddi which came with laminated hand guards, but a u s solid wood buttstock, very blonde. Been meaning to talk him into a replacement for years. :)

I don't know what the yellow/blonde wood is, but it is light as heck weight wise. I was going to weigh the two buttstocks for comparison, but I got excited and wanted to get the new furniture installed, so I forgot to weigh it, a duh moment on me.

The bayonet won't slide onto the bayonet lug, checked the T-slot and it's clean, free of debris, and void of any burrs. The muzzle brake passes through the bayonet ring with no issues. I did cause a ridge (Pushed metal) on the lug, when trying to force the bayonet on.

So I'm going to file the lug down and clean the pushed metal up and try again. I'll take a little bit off at a time until it fits. I'll make sure to go slow, so I don't take too much off.

Need to figure out what the proper screw would be, so I can swap out the pistol grips.
