This item consists of one used surplus Polish AK bakelite pistol grip, similar to one in picture. Color and shade varies, so the one you get may have more red, less red, more orange, less orange, etc. Verygood Good overall used surplus condition. The pictures with black background tend to make them look better than they are. the light reflects, blocking out nics, scuffs, and scratches. These can be restored to look pretty good.
These will have some wear from years of use, and some light nics, scratches, and dings.
*** Bakelite identification. I am pretty sure if the diamond
pattern faces inside and grip is narrow style its Romanian, and if
diamond pattern faces outside and grip is wider its Polish.** Not a 100%
guaranty, but I think its correct.
Sold as is, no refunds returns or exchanges. Many of these have a faded circle stamp on the side saying"WJK" or something like that, other than that, hard to identify, other than the color.
The color on these tend to be redish orangish, see pictures. Every bakelite grip has its own unique pattern and bakelite varies in color and shade, it seems from batch to batch.
If you want me to hand pick what I think looks the best out of 5, I do that for $5. I will pull 5 out and look at them and pick the one I like the best and that is the one you get, if you pick that hand pick option. Hand picked option isn't an upgrade in condition, its still graded the same.
*** Please note, the bakelite pattern varies on these, and each one has its own unique pattern. Some are a bit more solid, some have more of a marbled type pattern.*** If you want the best looking ones that I see, then you need to select the hand picked option..
**Tip*** Bakelite can be cleaned up easily! Simple green and 0000 Steel wool can take old almost black bakelite grips and make them look about NEW. Some bakelite seems to soak up oil, grease, gunpowder more than others and turns a lot of bakelite almost black. I have restored hundreds of almost black bakelite grips, that turned out to be real nice underneath.
I do sell some bakelite grips I call restored that I cleaned up.
