So after all the good advice about Moly Resin, I went ahead and ordered some. I ordered a quart of the semi gloss black, and it arrived today. I have my AK most of the way sandblasted, but I don't have an airbrush and my wife doesn't want me to bake it in our oven. I also have no experience with this finish or any other finish or even airbrushing for that matter. I am told that a quart is plenty for a couple of rifles, so if anyone can offer some assistance in the application and baking on my AK, I would gladly donate some Moly Resin so someone can refinish one of their firearms. Please let me know if you are interested.
