Finished a G1 on a Williams receiver.

Color matches almost perfectly with the remainder of the gun painted with hi-temp flat black from Ace Hardware.

WECSOG finish.

The kit went together for about a total of $385

Minor timing problems solved with breeching washer.

Actually looks great.

Bill,
What sized washer and LS did you need?
Thanks

Randy did the machining so he would know the size of the washer used. I do not.

We used a 268 locking washer.

Have you used that paint before? How's it hold up?

I went looking for paint to match the receiver. I have not used it but it is so close to the receiver color that I did the entire gun.

It probably will do as well as any paint, not baked on paint, and being heat resistant a little better.

Blasting the surface will probably give a better grip.

I suspect that this will be as good as the paint I put on the Imbel kit last Spring. That has held up quite well through a lot of shooting and carrying.

At $4.79 per can it is awfully cheap refinishing if needed. Gun Plumber probably has a $150 solution if extreme durability is an issue.
