My first build was a Romanian G rifle. I have not put a finish on it yet because I thought it looked like it was made in Afganistan or some place,I'll do it some time.Second was an Hungarian AMD-65 with Romanian barrel,and U.S. made gas tube.Third was a Bulgarian AK-74 with virgin barrel,both the AMD and the 74 I finished with high temp grill paint.This worked well as a cheap alternative to parking.All run like clockwork.I'm very pleased anyway.The Saiga is the 20 inch,great rifle,I did put a post up in the Saiga section.I went ahead and used a cold blue kit from midway usa,gun black actually on my Romanian and scrubbed down with a brillo pad.It made quite a nice battlefield look.The photo doesnt do it justice.Thanks to 4-ID for the advice.
Very nice work. Your hooked on building.
What you might think about doing is putting some type of blueing on the Romy receiver. Then take it down some with a light Brillo pad.
Just till you get the desired battlefield look.
Without some protection on there it will rust in a heartbeat.
