You can greatly improve the appearance of your AK-47 rifle by refinishing its furniture. The rifles used by the Russian army feature a dark red finish. With the right kind of stain, you can give your rifle an authentic Soviet/Russian look, or choose from a number of other stains.

Red Stain

To give your AK-47 rifle a Russian red look, choose a cherry red stain. Cherry red will give your rifle the appearance most commonly seen among rifles in service with the Russian army. The stain is usually available wherever paints are sold.

Natural Stain

Using a natural stain will give your AK-47 furniture a blonde wood look. A natural stain highlights the natural colour of the wood; before staining your wood, sand down the surface to give the wood a consistent colour.

Dark Stain

If you prefer the darker wood look when he comes to your AK-47, then use a dark wood stain. This stain will darken the natural colour of the wood giving it a dark, rich colour which will blend very nicely with the blued gun metal of the rifle.
