So we all know that the WASR finish leaves a lot to be desired..Has anyone stripped of the Phosfo/Black paint and given their WASR a finish other than factory either Romanian or CIA factory that is ??

I have both a WASR and an M70 both by CIA and the finish on the M70 is perfect and the WASR not so much, I have really been thinking about this for a while and just wondered what others might have done or not done.

I am thinking about the Brownells Aluma Hyde or Gun Kote. any thought pro and con are welcome.

Last year I build an AK off of a Bulgarian parts kit and a home bend flat, and what I did is I sand blasted every part, and then put the whole thing in a parkarization (spelling?) tank for 10 minutes or so. Came out awesome. I'd love to find how to chrome a whole AK. Not for a daily shooter, but it would be fun to make a novelty AK like that :)... This guy on CalGuns did a nice Job... Chrome AK

That looks great nice job I
