    Default RPK Grey/Green

    RPK Grey/Green
    Before



    I wasn?t satisfied with the way the black looked when it was finished. So I cleaned it off and refinished it to Duracoat Grey/Green. I like the look and results much better.

    I thought the black looked ok, but then it was just a pic.
    Looks good, I don't think I've ever seen that color before.


    Hey now, come on. You got time to build an RPK & a Polish under folder but you can't fix that outlet in the 2nd & 3rd pics. LOL

    Here comes the part I like -- Let's spend your money!!!

    You got to get one of those windage adjustable RPK sights. Otherwise it's like a woman in a fancy little black dress with sneakers! They used to only be 30 but I think they're $50 now. Gunny, I know some of that oil field money has got on you!

    That paint job looks great!

    Nice! That color looks similar to the VZ-58s to me.

    Here it is in good sunlight with the windage adjustable rear sight. The color shows better in natural light than with the fluorescent back light.

    nice

    if your intent was to reproduce the East German color/phosphate parkerized finish as applied to east german ak-47's not 74's, you are close but the finish needs to be flatter but you almost got it right, if that was your intention

    looks like a store bought(FFL) receiver, if so its a nice assembly job.

    if its a coldsteel blank nice build!
