These are nice kits. I do not fancy myself much of an AK person but i mess with them now and then. This belonged to a local client, who built the Childers receiver up with a nitrided barrel. He ran nice rivets. My job was to match the almost perfect finish on the kit parts with the barreled action. I used a paint over park variation (heated the barreled action quite a bit so that the paint spray would begin to cure before it leveled, mimicking the Russian spray texture and look) and YES nitrided barrels can be blasted clean for park... but wow is it work. At any rate, the only refinished parts here are the barrel and receiver. Everything else is original Russian.

Come to think of it, there's not a lot for me to take credit for......

Great looking AK with some really cool history.

Wow Adam! that looks Outstanding! (It looks even better in person! I thank you once again for the great work!) Take credit where credit is due. The build would not have worked without you meticulously matching the finish!:beer:
