Duracoat Refishing - Old Makarov Looks New

6 posts in this topic

Hi Fellas,


Take a look at the latest project we did for a client. His request was to take hi old beat up Russian Makarov and breathe some new life into it...


First we did a complete detail strip and ultrasonic cleaning (twice dipped) yes it was that dirty.


Then a complete de-greasing and surface preparation. We find that a sand blast is not really necessary for this finish, but would be for parkerizing which we do not do.


Client selected his colors and what he wanted to be done to what part etc....what follows is the finished product. Note - if you see ANY lint at all on the piece, (there is) it is NOT part of the

finish, it is surface from handling and pic taking....ok so we used the camera phone...LOL...didn't feel like breaking out the SLR ....


Have any old guns that a re-finish would make you proud to take out again? Or want to make last many lifetimes?....give us a call for a free quote....


As an aside this is a combo of Combat Green and Combat black they are a matte finish and have 4-6 layers....

    • The HK Web Shop advised this morning there's a 3-for-2 magazine sale with free shipping on orders over $50 until Monday. Since almost every H&K mag lists at $50, this amounts to three magazines at a 33% discount with free shipping. Note that the discount and free shipping did not appear in my shopping cart, but should be reflected in the final order, as noted on their home page. Update: The correct discounted charge was made. Only sales tax added.
    • The next match is Sunday May 28th.   This match and all matches at Quinton sportsmans club are open to the public.    5 big bad ass stages.   Website   Remember, if come out early, help with setup and stay after to help break down Santa will bring you a new gun.   Setup starts at 7am.
