    How did you heat treat the receiver or did you not need to? Asking because i want to finish a rpd semi build but the semi reweld part isnt clear yet.

    Mapp gas torch from OSH. $38.
    Auto ignite
    I heat treated the FCG pin holes, and ejector.
    Heat to glowing orange/yellow and drop in bucket of water. Sandpaper to clean up, and heat to blue/grey color to anneal.
    The front, and rear receiver stubs are already heat treated.

    This is actually the second attempt at finishing.
    Previously on my bent flats I have done rattle can engine paint, or dura-coat but for this I used cold blue.
    First attempt was with Birchwood Casy cold blue, and I wasn't happy with color
    Kind of a splotchy green/rust with emphasis on 'rust'.
    Notice the safety selector, and under folder stock compared to pics in OP.



    Scotch brited the whole thing, and tried Blue Wonder cold blue.
    Nice (even) blue/black with golden highlights (when held just right in the light).

    [haven't blued cleaning rod yet in this picture]

    [The golden highlight I am talking about]


    Perhaps it was my application procedure but I am much happier with the final result using the blue wonder, and it was easier to apply IMHO.

    This may help with the finishing. I media blasted mine before cold bluing, the whole rifle. The parts kit came blasted when I got it, and I did the receiver after making it. Gave the whole rifle an even grain and the blue turned out nice, but mine has a more worn look to the bluing but thats what I wanted, not a dark black. Maybe more coats could do that I never went any further.

    chunky lover, what cold blue did you end up using? Birchwood Casey? Or did you go with blue wonder? I'm torn as blue wonder is so damn expensive....

    your rifle looks good! So does yours, nicoroshi. The second bluing makes it look like it was pulled off the factory line. The first one actually kind of has a nice BFPU look to it.

    Fake can for 30" minimum length requirement of CA version of Federal law.
    CA measures the distance with the rifle in it shortest configuration (stock folded) so i had to permanently attach a 5" fake can to end up at 30 3/4" folded.
    The rifle is also bullet buttoned, and with a 10/30 mag for (IMHO stupid) SB23 which is CA's version of the now defunct AWB of 1994.
    I bet it still pisses off the liberals that I stayed within their idiotic rules, and legally own this type of rifle in CA.

    Hey Chunky Lover,
    I remember that rifle as a parts kit. Looking good

    Very nice build nicoroshi.

    I was going to ask about the rivet in the mag, but you answered that.
