Someone at must have read my Hodrodding the WASR-10 series and decided there’s a market for wood stock kits for Romanian AK47s that are G2G. The ready-to-rock units lack the shine or luster that two weeks of careful sanding and polishing can bring. BUT is it love’s labor lost? Do you have the time/patience for DIY? For around $130. I would have gone with this option if I’d known better. Although a considerable cost considering the price of the weapon, it’s makes the AK special. OR you could start with a birch wood set from Timbersmith and give it some extra love. Then you’ll really have something special. It’s annoying to polish a turd (a.k.a. commie bloc block wood), but it can be done. Much easier to start with something nice from the get-go. Kalashnikov would approve.

Brett Solomon got his first taste of the magazine world covering car electronics for CarSound & Performance Magazine. He landed the job by being noticed for designing high-end car audio systems. Which was fine by him because there was no way he was going to pass the third level of calculus toward an electrical engineering degree at University of Delaware. Not with those DuPont scholars around campus, he’ll take Journalism over Engineering, thank you very much. He has since written for a number of publications (think in-flight journalism) that lack the chutzpah of Robert Farago, and having all of those milquetoast reviews pent up in his system now allows his pen to spit fire. We’ll, he is just not that mean but happy to tell the truth…and the truth is most firearms are fun!
