    New Grips

    Just put new synthetic front grips on my AK. Still looking for a new stock though, and will probably eventually get some better ones that have a built in rail (or 2... or 8).

    $12 for both, from Midway USA. Not too shabby. Was a hell of a lot easier to install them than I thought it'd be.

    Did it affect weight any?

    I think that the wood grips are part of the charm of the weapon, although I do realize the allure of lighter weight plastic grips with rails.
    I am more of an SKS man myself.

    I've been waiting on a Helix since February.

    PSE drills their stabilizer attachments directly into the riser, don't they? I don't like that.

    I don't know. My area of expertise isn't compound bows. I pwned a PSE Polaris when I was a young 'un, my mommy wouldn't let me own a gun, but a compound bow was just fine...

    Yeah, a little. But the main thing is that it's easier to hold on to, or at least feels that way.

    Assuming I don't replace it with another rifle, it'll eventually look like this:

    When did the discussion move to compounds? I'm buying a recurve riser called the Helix, and I think PSE drills the stabilizer point into all their machined risers, be they recurve or compound.
