Well, I finally refinished my MAK-90. The original bluing had some assorted rust, mainly on the barrel, front sight, and gas block. The receiver also had a few bad spots. I buffed out the rust with fine steel wool, and cleaned up the receiver with a light bronze brush. The dust cover, safety, and gas tube were all refinished with an appliance epoxy spray that I picked up from Lowe's. It has a nice gloss finish, and seems to be pretty durable so far. The receiver and all other parts were refinished with 1200* grill paint. I put about three coats of the grill paint on, and cooked it for 30 minutes at around 275*. It really turned out a nice matte finish, and the piccs really don't do it justice. Considering I spent about $6 on the paint, I couldn't be happier. Oh, I also refinshed my mag with PermaSilk G while I was doing a few AR mags. It also turned out pretty well.

Now, all I have to do is decide between going back to all wood or getting a synthetic forend set.

So, how does she look? Almost too pretty for a workhorse AK!

Here are some before/after photos of the mag:

now all you need is a iron wood stock set. I have a bunch of floor plates and mag followers on my site www.MidwestArmory.com if your needing some cheap compliance parts those and a U.S. stock should do it.

Here is my Mak-90 in black stock just so you can get an idea of what it would look like.

You need to replace the front sight base and gas block.

It looks kind of strange with the cleaning rod, just hanging out like that.
