AK & Variants Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Quick question:

 

Im going to weather a Dboys/Kalash AKSU. Should I take the internals out before going at it? Someone said the metal and paint dust could cause damage if it got into the gears. Maybe using wet sandpaper?

Sorry for the bad quality pics, but I just wanted to share this for those atleast who own a steel CYMA AK. I got myself a steel version, but wasnt too happy about the surface quality on the body. I recently acquired Autosol "Chrome polish" agent for metal surface. It gave the gun a nice and glassy like surface effect, almost like LCT quality, but in black! See for yourself:

The gun has LCT top cover, rear stock and upper hand guard. Otherwise its stock. The pics wont justify how good it looks.

I'd take the internals out first, when I weathered the externals of my dboys AKMS the dust got everywhere, even with wet sand paper it was fairly messy. Since they use the LCT construction method it's pretty easy to remove the internals anyway. I found I was able to get a much flatter look to the paint once it had been sanded some, also got some nice worn looking bits on the edges. Because the vast majority of the gun is steel you also get small amounts of rust appearing with use (I accidentally left mine out all night one game which sped that up some.)
