This item consists of one used Bakelite AK pistol Grip in good overall condition to verygood condition. Expect them to be dirty and need to be cleaned. Color and shade varies. Each bakelite grip has its own unique pattern. I am separating them out the best I can to give you the best options. They all have some scuff marks from years of service,and some have nicer coloring than others. None seem to be identical.
You can grab a handful, pick best of 5 for $5 more, whatever you want.
These vary from box to box as far as some are cleaner,some are dirtier, and color and shade varies.
I sorted these into 3 categories.
1. Orangish/Red . These tend to look nicer and bring more money.
2. brownish/ Red. Some more brownish, some more redish
3. Dark colored. these are darker colored, dark redish brown.
Sorting these by color shades, isn't an exact science. I sort them the best I can. Sold as is.
I offer Hand picked best of 5 for an additional cost..
*** Bakelite grip identification. I cant be 100% certain but I am pretty sure Polish bakelite grips, the diamond pattern faces outward, the feel is textured,and Romanian Bakelite has narrower grip and diamond patter faces inward, and the feel is smoother than the polish.
Bakelite cleans up nicely with simple green & 0000 steel wool, maybe some polish.
Some have engravings, initials or names carved in and I call that trench art. That option is available as well, if I have them available.
The grip you get will/may vary in shade and color than ones in pictures. each batch of bakelite, is pretty much unique.
Bakelite, if pretty much banned from being made anymore, so its becoming a collectors item.
