Default WTS: Selector Marking Etch Decal Kits SALE PRICES!!

**NEW SALE PRICING**
[CENTER].
.
.

For the collector who strives for authenticity.


Each decal stencil design has been painstakingly reproduced from original selector marking examples from their respective countries. "Good enough" is not an option. Each design is layered on the highest quality materials, giving you a great finished product.


Not only will I offer examples from each country, I will also offer period variations that are correct for the year or arsenal you are trying to recreate. Looking for that late model Russian RPK, or that early Tula AKS-74u? You will soon find it all here.


If you have a particular variant that you are interested in that has not been released yet, feel free to send a PM, as interest in a certain variant will help me organize the workflow. MANY variations are in the works, even the rarest variants.

Worried that it's not that easy? No need to be, as it's quite easy, and actually fun! However, because I want you to be a pro at the first try, I will include some scrap decal pieces for you to practice with. After all, my offerings are only as good as your finished results.

Please do not ask about making custom decals. I do not have the time.

Standard selector decals are ON SALE $10.00 each. Arsenal markings are ON SALE $7.00 each. Other decal sets are priced as marked. All prices are SHIPPED Ppal, M/O, trades accepted. Please see trade list at bottom.

Wondering how deep you can go?








ETCHING TOOL:



A simple, reusable, and very effective tool offered to enable great results at little cost. Using this tool offers a slower, predictable result. There are many variations on the Internet for etching tools. It doesn't have to be confusing or costly.

$5.00 Shipped with the purchase of a decal!


FAQ's


Is this easy?
Yes! I have made this as easy as possible for the home builder. A full tutorial is located HERE.

Are the decals reusable?
Decals are not reusable. Thin vinyl with a strong adhesive on your receiver will tear apart upon removal. It's the nature of the beast, but even so, still remains the most economical way, and more importantly, the fool proof way to have great, and accurate looking markings.

Why would I use this when (company X) offers markings on the receivers they sell for an additional $20?
Beside the fact that this offering is much less expensive, and a faster turn around than sending out for engraving, you will end up with a finer, more original looking example which will translate to a better selling point to the more discerning collector down the road. If that's not enough, compare the examples with what you would get for that additional $20 on the most popular receiver builder out there.

Can I use my own tool to etch with these decals?
Absolutely! However, the detailed instructions that I have posted here are to be used with the inexpensive tool that I supply. With a varied mix of voltages and amperage from different homemade devices out there, your results will be just as varied. Too much voltage and amperage seems to result in a marking that is a bit rough and unrefined. The 9v or another low voltage source takes slightly longer, but results in a smoother result.

How much etching can be done with a battery?
Quite a few actually. I did 10 sets with one new battery, and it was still working fine. I didn't feel the need to keep using it, as it certainly proved itself.

Do I need anything else other than the decal and tool to make these extremely accurate markings?
Yes. Warm water, table salt, 9v battery, transparent tape (scotch tape, etc), rubbing alcohol for cleaning the surface before decal application. Basically, items you should already have around the house.

Will the etch be deep enough?
You will have no problem going to the correct depth.

Can I etch larger decals with this tool?
I would advise against etching anything much larger than standard selector markings with this particular tool. That is what this tool is designed for.

Do you do custom work?
NO I DO NOT. Not at this time. The bulk of work is focusing on accurate selector markings at this time. It is VERY time consuming to bring you the best!


If you have any of these items and want to work out a trade for decals, let me know.


Yugo bolt
AK builder 7.62 RPK barrel (or Russian/Romanian RPK barrel)
Bulgarian 5.45 RPK barrel
Romanian 5.45 mags
Blued Hungarian mags.
Blue handle Egyptian bayonet
Iraqi marked ammo




Thanks for your support. Let's take building to the next level!

I'm interested in a couple decals/stencils for the selector markings on a 1988 Bulgarian RPK-74.

Don't think there would much interest in those though.

Thanks for stepping up to fill this need!!

I will take one Bulgarian 74 stencil

---------------------------------
Also want to bring up the idea of having non-traditional/fun markings for all the Kyber/Frankenbuilds out there...


Without being boxed in and maybe have a "multi bullet" for the FA location (I know this is stolen from AR style receivers but I think it'd look just as good on an AK)

I'm interested in something unique like this for my Kyber build
