My Buddy liked the job I did on my 10/22 so gave me his Norinco AK to refinish. Spent a few hours degreasing and cleaning in the tub with industrial Simple Green and Kroiled some rust spots overnight. Used bronze steel wool #0000 to clean the rust off and Hair dryer gun to dry the parts completely. This week using Brownells "Aluma-Hyde" in Dark Parkerize Grey to refinish the metal. He's having New Walnut furniture shipped to me and I'm going to polish the Bolt for contrast.
i actually pulled the tango down grip off the rifle to put the miad on another ar lower that i am working on. this one i was and still am trying to stick with magpul even though the flashlight is caa. this build has taken since 08 and has been through several phases, stocks and rails. I have 2 other ar's completed right now and 2 in the works.
