After spending a lot of time talking and writing about MOD Outfitters a few weeks back, I got an itch that only a Krinkov can scratch. An SBR AK has always been on my short list of must-haves, but it seems like most of the quality manufacturers (such as Arsenal) like to pair the Krink only with polymer furniture. Functional, but lacking a little class and authenticity.
In my search for quality AK stock sets, i stumbled upon Combloc Customs; a custom refinisher of fine wood furniture. And if their craftsmanship is as good as the photos portray, it is some of the nicest stock sets I have ever seen for AK rifles.
I had a chance to talk briefly with Combloc Customs’ owner John Russell via email:
I am a big fan of the Kalashnikov rifle and its history. I have spent years researching original Cold War Soviet and Chicom factory finishes and I love being able to share this part of firearm history with my customers by reproducing these finishes for them. Although I specialize in custom finishing Kalashnikov furniture, I also offer custom finishes for just about any type of wood firearm furniture.
I work directly with Ironwood Designs to provide my customers with authentic U.S. made versions of just about every set of classic communist bloc AK furniture made. My customers can order their Ironwood Designs furniture directly through me and have me custom finish it. They can also send me their firearm furniture to be custom finished.
Dedicated to providing firearms enthusiasts and collectors with custom finished AK-47 furniture for the Kalashnikov rifle. Each AK Stock or AK-47 furniture is hand finished and undergoes a multi-step process that ensures the highest quality finish.
Beautiful work, John.
