    Actually started last night by stripping off any old stain/finish and washing the wood. I let it dry overnight before I put on some red mahogany coats and some poly seal. im eventually going to go with all synthetics but i figured i'd see what this looks like first. i couldnt get the stock off so i had to do it attached to the receiver. sucker is jammed in there something fierce.

    after i got everything put back on i cleaned up the outside of the receiver with some clp.

    Looks good, I wish I had your bottom foregrip. Mine had some red spots that would come off, and still show red through the Red Oak stain I used.

    Newer WASR's all seem to have the mismatch look with the stock and handguards, I think they got cheap with the varnish. Mine are older ones and the stocks were like SAR ones much darker colored and matching but looked like it was slapped on with a worn out paintbrush. Looks to be the same exact wood underneath though on older and newer rifles.

    The stock on mine is a completely different grain pattern. Instead of the rings being on the side, they are on the top.
