This item consists of 3 used Polish AK Pistol grips in overall good to very good overall used condition.
You will receive one of each color type I have for a total of 3 pistol grips.
The coloring and shades of bakelite vary,and I don't think any two are the same except if they are a solid color.
I have noticed 3 different color patterns in Polish bakelite AK pistol grips and I sort them that way.
I call them 1 Orangish red, 2. Brownish red.(Most of the brownish red ones are more brown than red, but the one in this picture, shows more of the red with the flash of the camera.) 3. dark brownish red.( The darkest of the 3 shade types I have) FYI, I cleaned the orangish red ones and wiped them with CLP. The CLP brings out the luster of the marbling in the bakelite. I can get over $15 each for just the grips at gunshows. This is a bargain deal for all 3 style Polish bakelite grips. You can see the difference in the pictures between the orangish red ones I cleaned and the ones I didn't.
Its easy to clean up Bakelite grips and get them looking almost New.
The shade of color varies and the bakelite pattern varies grip to grip, none seem to be identical.
I picked one of each color/shade types and bundled them into this package.
I offer hand picked for an additional $5 I grab 5 of each color,and pick what I think is the best out of 5 of each color.
The ones you receive may look a bit nicer or not quite as nice as the ones in the picture. I just grabbed one out of each of the 3 boxes, without looking, to give a fair example of what to expect.
These are all graded the same. good overall condition. Expect these to be dirty and or greasy and need a good cleaning. Expect nics scratches and dings, maybe feckling in the bakelite, which can be cleaned up/restored.
Expect finish wear, nics and scratches. Hand picking option doesn't get you a better graded grip, but I do pick the one I think looks the best out of 5. The overall condition of these is good to verygood.
I have received a lot of feedback from customers on these grips. I think giving a hand picked option for one of each color/shade pattern gives a pretty good example, for an AK collector to add to his/her collection.
FYI, look at the pics. if you notice the "2" grips brownish red, sometimes they are more on the red side,and sometimes more on the brown side. None are identical, so I could sort these until I had to take pics of each one and sell individually. So, I sort them into the 3 categories.
Sold as is.
Bakelite grips are getting hard to find,and I don't think they are allowed to be made anymore, due to the process they were made. Bakelite AK grips are becoming collectors items.
