Bedside manners, revised.

I was never quite happy with the finish on my bedside HD rifle's walnut handguard and forend. So when the brown truck showed up with a nice full-sized wood Bulgarian pistol grip (Thanks, K-Var!), I took it upon myself to sand, stain, and linseed oil the entire complement of furniture that adorns my Romanian SAR-1 sidefolder. As anybody knows who's dealt with the process of using boiled linseed oil as a stock finish, it is tedious, time-consuming, and drop-dead gorgeous when done properly. So, without further ado, say hello to my little friend:

He's a cute little booger, ain't he? The Hungarian 20-round magazine is a nice touch, and makes for a more compact package when sitting between the nightstand and the headboard.
