They are these:
AK Strikeforce (without the 3 lower rails installed.....they come with inserts to cover the slots if not used)
I really like the palm swell on them. Comfortable to hold.

@wayoutwest

They are screws...not rivets, and have been filled in, and filed rounded before paint. So they probably do look big for rivets.
The fact you thought they were rivets let's me know I did a good job on them. Thanks.

I am surprised no one asked about the cleaning kit trap door in the butt stock though. I modified the Tapco with a piece of PVC tubing, and a couple of screws to work like the original wood stock for storing the cleaning kit.

Simple to apply Dupli-color 500 Engine paint. I did 5 thin coats (one can barely makes it) of their semi-gloss black on both of my AKs.
Pick it up at just about any auto parts store for ~$6 a can.



My good friend who built his first when I built my second choose a dark silver which turned out more coyote brown.




My father on the other hand went for shock value with their bright silver:

Been having fun building out Romy 'G' kits with my family, and friends (if you couldn't tell)

I got this AK-47 off of another board and thought I would post some pictures.

This was a Russian Non-Matching Type III kit that was re-welded using the original milled receiver. These kits have some cool history. Here is some info I took of another board explaining it. I did not write this.

Quote:
Firstly, I believe the kits were actually part of an Iranian shipment of weapons bound for Palestine on the Karine A freighter seized by Israel in the Red Sea in a naval operation that lasted eight-minutes with the entire crew of 12 willfully surrendering and without a single shot fired by anyone. The approximately 50 tons of weapons were destined for the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) from Iran but they were not actually captured from the PLO. The ship was seized 300 miles south off the coast of the southern port of Eilat, Israel, between Saudi Arabia and Sudan. Most folks are used to hearing the "captured PLO" phrase and envision the weapons sustaining wear and abuse in the hands of PLO militants. However, an extreme few were ever even seen by a PLO member and almost none of the rifles that were eventually kits ever got to see Palestine. They were weapons collected by Iran for delivery and naturally the wear/use/abuse was sustained by Iranian soldiers, etc. during either training or perhaps even combat. The kits were more likely to have been complete rifles that received extended use in Iranian units and were allocated as clandestine export weapons when there was no longer any use for them in Iran. "Seized offshore" would probably be a more applicable term to describe the kits but it doesn't have quite the sexy, imaginative ring that "PLO captured" does.
Now some pictures

I have been acquiring some Yugo M70 AK furniture with "Trench Art" for an upcoming "turbothis" re-weld project. I got to thinking it would be cool if I could get some info on the carvings. I figure some of them are dates but as to the rest I have no clue? If anyone here speaks Cryillic or can translate the words for me I would be Stoked! As to the dates.....could these be battles fought in the Serb/Croat war? Any info members could shed would be much apprectiated!!! :smile:

Thanks

Tenbrook

It could if not applied right.
Need to rough up (sandpaper), and completely de-grease (gunscrubber) the area to be painted.
Then after the multiple thin coats are allowed to set you bake it at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
On the rifles I have painted this way it has held up really well.

Finally finished tweaking out the problems in my flat build...

Tools used: big chisel, big hammer, little hammer, sand paper, belt sander, vibration sander, steel wool, adjustable wrench, dremel tool, drill press, and lots of Duracoat.

So you do thin coats.

Do you sand and bake in oven between each coat?
Or Sand between each coat, then bake when done?

I sand (to rough up), and de-grease before painting.
The thin coats are by the instructions.
Apply a thin coat. Wait 5-10 minutes. Apply a second. Continue till can is empty. Let dry completely (normally let them set for 3-4 hours to overnight) then bake.
Wife doesn't let me use the house oven for it so I heat up the BBQ to 400 degrees (gas). Shut down two of the three burners, and leave the last one on low. Place parts on aluminum foil over the burners that are not on, and close lid. Let bake (using the indirect heat) for 30 minutes to an hour.
Done.

@Travis8128

ROFLMAO! Told you he went for shock value. It shoots great though.

I just received my Yugo M70 Re-Weld back from "Turbothis" and thought I would share some pictures. I have been working on acquiring a M70 kit with the "Battle Field Pick-Up" (BFPU) look for a while and am really pleased how this turned out!

The carvings are Serbian. The one containing the four S's (looks like a c) is the Serb Cross. The S's stand for (Samo, Sloga, Serba and Spasava) which translates to only unity saves a serb.The other carving is a Serbian Double Headed Eagle. The word is Miller as in the soldiers last name.
