I'd like to refinish one of my AK's,a VEPR to be exact.I've considered all the different types,parkerizing,kgi guncoat,powdercoat but I think I'll just go with a blue over a beadblast. What do you guys think?

 For pure looks, your eye is king.  But if you are refinishing for function I don't think blue is better than the what's already on the rifle.  
 I don't have a VEPR but the Saiga I've got has a pretty good finish, paint over Parkerize.  One would probably have to go to one of the new, expensive coatings to better it.

How about Van's bluing?  I use it, and it works well.  Pretty easy.

I was actually going to send it to a guy in Pennsylvania that I used a long time ago.
Ron Mahovsky Metalife Industries.His price to Blue over glassbead is $75.I was also thinking about Hard Chroming the Bolt and Carrier.
He did a Winchester 94 for me about 10 years ago and it still looks just as good as the day I got it from him.
