Wow, we need to tie this thread into the Mosin-Nagant forum. Lots of folks ask about how to get that "Mosin Red", and that AK looks great!

I try and stay away from polyurethane and keep to the shellac with Gamblin Indian Red pigment flakes. I think it gives a very close match.

I had good luck using the Rit red dye powder dissolved in Acetone, and mixed with a small can of polyurethane. The Youtube video is in three parts link to the first part is below.
