Is there anywhere I can buy a stainless bolt carrier for my AK-47? Thanks!
I'm looking for something like this to replace my WASR-10/63 blued:
My friend just stripped and polished his on his ak. I'll probably do the same if I buy one.
Stripped mine and used bake on GunKote on it, according to GunKote its a very slippery surface, seems true to me, I do not oil the bolt or the carrier
So underneath the bluing is stainless steel or chrome and you're polishing it?
Is this correct?? Also how do you strip the finish?
You can purchase some sort of blue remover (it's a very mild acid), use fine steel wool, or polish it out with compound. I recommend using all three. Steel Wool first, the blue remover, then finish it up with some jeweler's rouge compound.
Removed the bluing on my AK-47 Bolt carrier and I see no silver or chrome.... I'm pissed that I wasted money on this.
It looks way worse without bluing...
