  • best color for an ak-47 build

    I am about to coat an AMD-65 receiver and a Bulgarian AK-74 receiver. I don't plan on coating the other parts because I as much original finish as possible. What color gunkote will blend the best with the original parts ?

    Thought on all military part ... FLAT
    But if you want to stay as close as possible to reality, you might chose other than caoting.

      Gunnutt,

      We have a finish that matches very closely to most of the variations of the bluish-grey-black finish of the older AK's, CZ's etc...We also have an AK Black that matches very well to the more modern black variations. The newer more black toned finish is 2401AK and the more blue-grey finish is 2403CZ. The 2403CZ is not yet up on the website, since we just finalized it. I hope this helps.

            Whoa ... Sorry, I had never seen those coats(finishes). I thought it was a more generalized question to colors of coats. Looks good ! (next time I'll shut my Fu%*! peehole) (umm...I think he was going for either suckhole, or poophole...)

              Good, I was hoping for that. The 2403CZ should be available within the next week or so. We are still waiting for approval from the customer who sent us the parts to match. We already know it matches in our color system, but just to be sure we want them to verify it. I would suggest, if I may, that before you order any coatings, get some color chips so you can make sure that you are ordering what is going to match your system.

                No problem Dom. These are two of our newest colors. We currently have over 78 available colors to choose from with a collection of about 100+ custom colors we have not made available as a standard color system. If ever there is a question on color, we are likely to have a match.

                    Got to love a forum where the manufacturer monitors the boards with up to date info.
                    I am going to order some 2401AK for two of the guns and hold up for some 2403CZ for the AMD-65. Might coat the whole rifle.

                    Do you recomend bead blast, sand blast or, a media blast for prep ?

                      I just read the FAQ on the web page, 120 grit aluminum oxide.

                        Gunnut,

                        That's correct sir. And thank you for the kind words. We are starting a new campaign this year to be more pro-active on the forums so people know what they are getting when they use Gun Kote or our cleaners. The forums are where most people get their information anymore. Its places like SP that help to create a knowledge base that people need, to use products they can count on. We are here to help in any way. Even if it means tips on how to make a competitors finish better. (thats easy: strip it and use Gun Kote).

                        At any rate, yes the 120 grit aluminum oxide is what you want. Also, if you look on our site, on the top orange bar, there is a link that says "Data Sheets". This link will take you to some PDF files that are the application sheets for each series of coatings. Those should give you more than enough information. Let me know if you need anything.

                              We should have it up on the site this week. I am sorry about the delay on it. We were waiting on some approvals before finalizing the formulation. We should also have our new color chart up and running in a week or two. I will keep everyone posted.
