I took my charging handle to my jeweler to shine it up a bit, my friend and I weren't able to get it good enough. I asked for a mirror finish and that's what I got. Tell me what you guys think:

You should gold plate the whole receiver.

Then your AK would be BANGIN'!!. :P

That's some BLING.......but does it work.....

If it does you could blind your enemy after you run out of ammo........:D

haha - yeah, it is really shiny. btw it is impossible to get Duracoat off. we had to dremel it off. You can see in the pictures where we left the Duracoat on for some protection. Whats that line from that movie? Bling Bang?:D

Nah, no need for that tactic if he's got a pistol grip on that rig.

Back to topic - I like it, it's really shiny lol

WOW!!! That looks like something out of Flava Flav's mouth!

If you like it and it suits your taste thats all that matters, but it's just a little too un-tacticool for my liking.

By the way Tony, I have a spare chinese bolt carrier that is just plain old metal color somewhere. They came grey or silver or whatever color you would consider steel if thats the look that you were going for, would definitely look more practical like a standard AK instead of the pimp job. PM me if your interested and maybe we can trade for something.

Yeah, I am sure it will dull in time and not be so shiny. It does look really good with the gun because as you can see the Duracuat is glossy as well.

I am not normally much for bling, but I actually like it. Very nice polish job!

Funny thing, that actually made the bolt stronger. :) (not that you'll break the standard one)

To tell you guys the truth I wasn't really going for the "bling" or "pimp" factor. I just wanted a polished bolt on my AK. I figured if I get it polished, it should be POLISHED. ya know what I mean? I will take a picture of the whole gun and post it soon and I think you guys will agree that it is not gaudy or anything like that.

I think it looks pretty good. I'd P.I.M.P. it out and make that baby my South Central gun.Put my gold teeth in, jump in da Caddy and roll the steets of LA listening to 50 Cent =) Add pearl grip and maybe a fake diamond for the sight.

I'd love to get a Gold AK. That reminds me of the one in Lord of War.
I was thiking the same thing:D , now if those people in South Central could own guns, Ill can make a fortune:D

A friend who is in the jewelry business did it for me as a personal favor. My friend and I were dremeling off the Duracoat and trying to do everything to shine it up but it looked really bad. I thought about how ever time I get my Rolex worked on it looks brand new when he gets it back to me. I so I gave my buddy a call. Took around 3 weeks. He did a wonderful job and the serial numbers are all still there and readable, so the whole gun matches. I am very pleased with it.

I want to put a challenge out: If you can find a picture of an AK-47 bolt shiner then mine, please post it.:D

MY EYES! I can't wait for the day when Tiffany's sells high end polished AK-47 and AR-15 bolts. That will be the day my wife will want a rifle.
