    I wouldn't worry about the finish. It's already gone. Kind of suspect it's too late for the stock too. Oil in wood will permanently damage it, but try soaking it in some mineral spirits. Permanently...

    Lots of surplus Soviet night vision kit was around here, 25 or so years ago. Kind of crud though.
    $300 or $400 is decidedly expensive. Especially for non-Russian stuff. Mind you, most of the...

    Amazing how fast one gets used to eating regular and living inside.

    It's going to be a Bubba'd rifle anyway so what you use as a wood finish won't matter. I'd suggest Pure Tung Oil instead of RLO or BLO. When properly rubbed in(one coat per day with 24 hours drying...
