What part of WA are you in?
I was wondering if anyone out there would be willing to rent me their riveting and barrel pressing tools. I can pay $100 and if you are local I can also do a 1 or 2 color Cerakote/Duracoat job on a gun for you. For long guns I can only use Cerakote air cure, but pistols I can use air cure or oven cure and if you prefer duracoat I can do that too. Just let me know what color you want and what type of gun you want blasted, bring by the tools, ill give you the money, and get to work on your gun when I Cerakote mine.
Or if you feel like it you could stick around and help with the build. I am building an AK 74 on a virgin barrel and someone whos built before looking over my shoulder would be very appreciated.
I am getting my parts kit in a few days and my receiver a few days after that so probably around the middle of the month would be my actual build date.
Or if you are in WA and want a Cerakote/Duracoat job done, let me know what you want and I can do that too.
