Problem is the Hydro Dip wood patterns are all fancy walnut and burl wood etc, which is a far cry from the laminated sh*t used on Ak's.

Interesting way of going about things,always nice to deviate from the norm sometimes,especially when you save money-That actually looks better than I expected,already miles better than any imitation wood on airsoft AKs. Should look better outdoors

Looks fine to me.

Personally I think it looks way better than the plastic-fake-wood-look that the Chinese companies try to do.

 

Good work :)

Oh wow! That looks very nice. Huge improvement over brown plastic and by far better than any other imitation wood I've seen on AKs. The grain looks cheap enough to be an ak and fancy enough not to make it look like actual wood
