park pictures 001.jpg
Well its taken me a couple of years gathering the tools and supplies but I finally parked my first AK. A HUGE thanks to pirate56 for his parkerizing tuturial I followed it precisely and obtained the above results. (I it is even throughout the dark parts are left over oil) I was a little worried after removing from the blackener as the receiver had white and gray areas but after the boiling water bath and oil it turned and even black.
I have a couple of questions though.
You can add water to make up for evaporation right? Do you just add enough to bring it back to its original volume?
I had a green precipitate form when I accidently boiled it is this normal (I think I read it is supposed to be white?) It still worked but did I shorten the life span of it?
Are there advantages to just having a parked gun? I had every intention of doing a coat of duracoat over my park job but it turned out so well Im not sure I want to paint over it now... whats the consensus on this? Thanks again Pirate56 your tutorial is top notch.
