Default WTS BLUING SERVICES - updated

Hot Tank Bluing

Tutorial here:
http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=201824



Receivers.......Stamped or Milled......."Factory" finish........$50.00 and up (each).

2 or more at $40.00 each

This depends on what you want the end result to be and Polishing, Sanding Bead Blasting, etc. can all run the bill up based on the STARTING condition of the part but GENERALLY a new stamped receiver is $50.00. The machining marks left from the manufacturer on some milled receivers take more time and will cost you more money.

If you want a bead blasted finish (looks like a new Arsenal) it will be $50.00

If it has been painted, or duracoated paint removal is extra. email me to discuss this.

I can blue over park and the end result will look like a brand new Cugir (Draco, AES 10B, Sar2 etc). $40.00 with no prep......

Lots of other services available (complete AK's, Parts and Pieces, Polishing, Draw Filing/Sanding/Polishing).

EMAIL with your needs........my email is listed just click on my user name...........if you PM me and clog up my mail box I'll charge you more

I trade too!



Above: Childers Polish AK47M (early)

Above: Rapid Fire Milled M64 Underfolder

Above: NDS Yugo M70 Underfolder


I can do your AK assembled (riveted parts left in the firearm) BUT understand that the salts are corrosive and will find their way in between the parts. This can be very difficult to remove and the picture below will show you what the PAP factory parts look like after they assemble and blue a M92 (rusted between the receiver and trunnions):




PLEASE EMAIL me with your questions (don't PM) my email is: buckoff@windstream.net

What's the rate for two Nodak receivers (M70), shipping included within TX?

Also, can they be shipped back to a non FFL? Lead times?

PLEASE EMAIL me................MY PM box can't handle the volume.

Don't PM me asking me how to blue your parts......
Don't PM me to tell me that your buddy will durakote your rifle for $11.00 less......

Come on fellers, Have some common sense, some common courtesy, and use yer noggin!
Bluing is done (or at least offered here) to allow you to restore or get back to that original look. I am not here to edumacate ya'll.......


I can blue your AK (or FAL or whatever) in it's assembled state but you aren't going to be happy with the salts creeping out between the barrel and trunion or between the trunion and the receiver and out of the rivet holes rusting everything.
If you are going to do this than do it right and blue the parts before you build it (or have a builder demill it and then put it back together.

ETA: I have found a new way to boil the blued parts in a solution that does a pretty good job of stopping bluing creep. This is an additional charge but if you want to blue an assembled rifle it is well worth it!

Blued some Childers Receivers the other day that Cameron had welded up and remarked the selector markings. They came out great! Normally when welded there is a halo or splotchy look where the blue doesn't "take" right but the Childers looked perfect!

If the weld is done correctly (right rod, TIG, heat control, prepped right, etc.) then it will blue correctly. Welding or actually extreme heat actually restructures the steel changing the composition in that area and often you can see what I refer to as a "halo".

I recently blued a Childers receiver that Cameron had welded up the selector marks and re-engraved and it came out PERFECT!


If you guys are wanting a quote or going to send me a message, use my email: buckoff@windstream.net

I will not quote through this system. Email is my way of keeping track......
Thanks!
