Default I repainted my AK. It's very sparkly.

Still working on the grip, making a fin that is attached to a cheap ergo grip. I will probably leave that painted in black truck bed liner. I think I may also paint up one mag just to have it matching.

Used krylon gloss black, then taped it off and give it a heaping coating of Kylon glitter blast (which is garbage paint), then a number of clear coats.

I have no idea how it will hold up, probably not very well. It was previously painted red metal flake which ended bubbling off after a 100 degree day and a 150 rounds of bump firing.

My first rattlecan job was on a mini 14. It looked kinda cool to me but I had an extra stock that I had cracked and glued. Well my buddies saw it and then i was painting everybody's. I didnt think it looked good but what do i know. Yours is kinda cool but I like red and black together.

Paint scheme isn't my first choice, but it's nice paintwork.

By the way, what's the deal with the front hand guard? Those weird bumps?

I tried to get a horizontal finger grove carved into the hard guard. Didn't turn out as functional as I had hoped.

10 more headshots and he has to repaint it.....

Not my style, but it is nice to see something other than black once in a while.

I hope you roll to the range with a 70's Afro and a porn 'stache while sporting a thick gold chain with shirt unbuttoned to mid-chest. Have that AK on your back.

Then just bust it out and start owning targets while shooting from the hip.

That's pretty cool to do to an AK, but you won't see me putting anything on my AR but oil to keep her clean and black.

Next time I'm at the range and see someone riding a unicorn wearing finger-less gloves, lace top, and knee high leather boots I'll be sure to ask about his pink tigress AK!

Just kidding! It's your gun, do what you want with it.

You're a girl and most girls like glitter. So, I guess it's cool. Besides, you didn't hurt anything. If you decide to change it later, it is easy enough to sandblast and refinish.
