AK & Variants Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

Thanks, yeah it was a professional job, it's possible to DIY at home but it'd take a lot of will, but if you have a lot of space, like a garage workshop or something it's probably feasible. You still have to bake it but considering the curing temperature of Cerakote is about 150°c max, most home ovens can do it provided it's big enough. 

 

It was a GHK AK105 that has been completely brutalised, the Russian style side mount was taken off and the holes were weld filled, the barrel was a Samoon steel barrel chopped down, with a steel CNC Bolton gas block that I made with the help of dimensions from RacingManiac who owns the real ones. The grip is intended for Saiga-12, and the handguard is a RS one that I got off Geri, with the gas tube rail being an LCT clone of the Ultimak tube rail (which unfortunately has no markings)..

Yeah boy! Im over my dislike of modernized aks with rails etc and ill always prefer a "naked"one-just cause theyre so heavy....but that is really well built; love youd stock, compensator, and the grip is just sweet particularly the sling; what type of sling is it?

I don't know what I'm doing.

That's ok. Half of the time most of us don't either. Heck, just yesterday I was shoehorning M712 mags on my AK and it would have cycled if the valve knocker was only an inch longer.

Im actually considering the viper ak12 - how would u rate build quality- particularly the plastic: brittle abs or the light but tough anti shockstuff cyma use?

 

I thought id post my first attempt at camo. Rifle is a cyma p1093s, which i give 8 out of ten as a springer; I was very impressed. No flamey type comments please; its a first attempt and not finished- some tips wd be v welcome. So heres my Zebra splitter with chocolate chips scheme

 

Edit: the spots on the mag and receiver are actually cat litter; im going to drybrush it to look like dirt. Also i should add: if youre considering buying a cyma underfolding stock, i suggest u get this rifle as its the exact same stock and you pay the same only with a free hi cap and a very nice ak47s springer

The carpet is a sort of watermark as I've yet to see another and hope to never see another.

The sling is a Blue Force Gear Limited Edition AK Sling V2.

quick question. I'm tempted to find a 2nd RS T562 and PDW it by shortening it to AK Beta length(cause 74u length isn't PDWy enough)

 

Would that be much more complicated than just swapping the front set with one off of some 2nd hand AK74u?

Like, more complicated than a bit of lathing and maybe milling?

It's definitely not fiberglass/fused with any other material (it melts really easily under a dremel wheel), but it's not brittle by any means. Just wouldn't prefer to throw it around a field is all.

If you're OK with lathing and milling, why swap the front end at all? Couldn't you just cut down the existing barrel and gas tube?

 

I support this endeavour wholeheartedly, anyway, there are far too few custom RealSwords out there.

I'm thinking about it. Might as well just do a custom shortening job instead of relying on any existing design.

 

The biggest issue though is driving out the pins holding the gas block and front sight block on. Iv tried that befor and it fells nigh impossible.

 

Edit: ok, yeah. I've got a course of action for it. I know how I'm going to bang it out. Ill do some proper design work and budgeting for it tomorrow.

But I'm not going to speak of it again until I actually start doing it. You guys know how flaky I am.

Cool optics- just a v cool gun top 2 tail. What make/model is it? I see youve stuck with the skeleton stock rather than the polymer one. Im selling off a lot of mine mostly my never used airguns, then spend the lot on the best soviet aeg or gbb i can possibly find, most prob a realsword type 59 akm

 

Oh yeah i read the plum colour was a soviet screw up when creating the black colouration- any truth 2 that? If so it would explain why that colour is so damn expejsive as parts.

 

Just seen ur old school svd with pso (genuine?). Weird how even their non-ak derived small arms look exactly like AK derivatives- prob down to fmiliarisation, ease of use or something. Is yours the Chinese Norinco? Only ask cos RS seem to specialise in Chinese stuff now.

 

Edit: 'sup Ninja master? (Seen ur here at the bottom bit).
