I would slap the crap out of you if I could:laugh: I hope that helps.
I was actually considering this for my underfolder project.
I've got bakelite furniture and gold would go great with it. I was originally going to have mine plated or gold plated but that is a little expensive.
A gold ak would make a great wall mounted weapon.
If you go through with it post pictures!
Duracoat, and one of their colors is gold.
DuraCoat Standard Colors - A thru G
Duracoat or KG Gun Kote - both have gold available and deal with high temperatures well - fairly gun chemical resistant as well. I wouldn't paint an AK gold but whatever floats your boat.
The best way to have the paint stick well would be to strip the gun down to a barreled action, bead blast it, clean it well, parkerize it, then shoot the paint over the park finish. The paint will bond well to the park finish. The up side is when you decide you don't like the gold color you can always strip it back down and repaint it black again and will already have the process down
I used automotive paint to great success on a 870. ( no gold tho )
Gold painted AK?
Well, I've heard dumber ideas, but not many.
Take a couple weeks and think about it. If it still sounds good then, go for it.
Of course you could consider just using gold plate or gold leaf. THAT would actually add some value to the weapon instead of what you have in mind.
Well if you don't like it when it's done you can always blast it off and coat it black again. Go for it; It will make for a good story if nothing else!
Sadam's gold AK
I just threw up in my mouth a little bit
This kind of sounds like the 2008 Election. Someone thought Obama would be a good idea.
Now, a lot think it was a bad joke.
I never heard of a painted rifle before, but a girlfriends Dad once told me He would paint his shotgun white and give his daughter a Formal Wedding!
