    Default The AK104 was lonely (AK105 build)

    I had built up a Bulgarian kit long ago with an AK105 barrel assembly from KVAR.
    After doing the AK104 build with proper poly folding stock, scope rail, and Poly furniture I decided it was time to rebuild the AK105 in 'proper' fashion.

    Demilled the Bulgarian, bought a few parts, and a new flat, and rebuilt her into this>>>

    Now gotta save up for another Kobra dot to put on her.

    You'll laugh.
    Dupli-color high temp engine paint.
    Trick is to paint heated metal.
    Get it almost too hot to touch and paint from about 10" away.
    Let paint flash dry when it hits the hot metal.
    Creates a texture that mimics the Saiga finish.
    Looks like ash= metal too hot
    Looks wet= metal too cold
    Have fun

    Nice lookers there^

    Very nice 100 series twins^^^^

    I generally spray KG Gunkote but have used the DupliColor high temp engine enamel. I use the DE1634 Low Gloss on Russian type finish. It is a low luster finish Is that what you used?

    Setting up a 100 series build on one of the K-VAR virgin SLR95 7.62 barrels they had on sale. A bit of lathe time and it is ready.

    Looks like a nice beginning Blue.
    Exact paint I used
    Low gloss black
    Same paint I use to touch up saigas that I plug weld the back holes on.
    Same technique heated metal is key to getting the texture right.

    Really nice! I've painted a few of mine with the Duplicolor VHT low gloss black. I cooked mine in the oven, they are holding up pretty good so far.

    Looks fantastic man.

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

    Nice Job!!
    I paint my builds almost the same way, but I heat the painted parts after I spray them.
    200 degrees for 1/2 a hour, then let it cool and cure for a few days.

    These are a few I have painted myself.
    It's a "lot" cheaper then paying someone to do it.

    Pull up your pants, turn off that damn rap and speak clear English, if you want to talk to me.
