    copperhead C39 AK pistol....another night of boredom

    So, some of you may remember i was offered a C39 AK pistol from my LGS at his price, rather than him return it, as the phosphitized coating was a "blem", almost not even there, giving the pistol an almost primer gray color and black in spots. Totally needed refinished, but saved me a LOT of money so i bought it.

    After some suggestions here, i worked on it this weekend.
    This is my first attempt at a small snake scale pattern, so its not perfect, but i think it looks rather good. And in a pre-finished text, Evil said its "bada$$" so it can't be too bad.

    Anyway, brown Hogue overmolded grip is on order, otherwise here it is:

    That's pretty slick work. The scales are particularly impressive.

    You might just get a pm when I get some extra funds. The snake skin I tried on the shotgun just doesn't compare in detail now...

    Sweet, nicely done!
    Does it have a textured feel from that screening pattern?

    Copperheads are actually extremely common in my area. There are almost as many lakes as there is people in my little corner of the world (one of the few reasons i like it here).
    Seeing a copperhead wouldn't phase anyone.

    Oddly enough, a garter snake, while common as day everywhere else (non-poisonous) will get people all worked up locally, because if you see one near your house, it usually means someone nearby (or you) has an infestation of them in thier crawlspace, garage, barn.....like roaches of the snake world.


    Thanks again guys.
