    Default The Gorkonov project

    I bought one of the century gorkonovs a few weeks ago. I really wasn't happy with the finish. it was one of the worst finishes I ever saw on a gun, specially one that cost $4,500.00 I started noticing spots of rust appearing on it even after oiling it. I took it apart the other night to discover the bolt & carrier blooming with rust as well. I took it to the shop today and tore it down tonight. I started polishing the parts and receiver and getting rid of some of the machine marks and grind marks. I am going to dulite it over the weekend and make it look like it should. this is the first time I bought a gun and had to tear it apart and refinish it before I even got to shoot it

    That's crap, send that shit back... I got a cut up centerfire kit that looks better than that, and it was $225 shipped to my door.

    Hold on now are you saying you got something bad, rusty or screwed up from CenterFireScrewups? Say it isn't so.

    They would never screw anybody on gun parts or kits.......HA I make myself laugh
