I purchased one of these: www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=119&t=329349
I bought the one with "A-6" forge markings...its gonna need some finish work (filing dremmeling ect.) to get looking the way I want it to look...I'm gonna moly coat the entire piece after doing the filing and sanding...where this thing was cut do I sandblast just the worked on area or the whole thing ...I want the sight to have a nice even finish. Would you take this thing all apart to do the filing, sanding ect.
Thanx for your input!

Next time you want to ask someone a question, try IMing the person instead of starting a whole new thread to ask one person a question.

I thought I'd add some pics of my CCH BUIS. Finished with Alumablack.

This one looks real good, aside from the cheap lockdown nut. Stick, you should be ashamed of yourself. LOL!

The revised AR15 Refinishing thread, and the 1911 refinishing thread are hopefully going to have a FAQ section where some of these will be covered. There are also a few other ideas that we have kicking around that should help people out.


+1, I can't stand people like edwin247 (nothing personal), that think they have the right to tell people when they can or can't post a question, or what they can or can't do. The rules are at the top of each forum, not in your .02 cents. I agree with stick, and I appreciate his quick response to edwin247's post, I do also have a suggestion. Maybe Tee-Bruce can change the name of this thread so it will be much easier for people to find. Don't be so hard on the Newbe

Just chopped a Cardinal Forge CH myself and painted it a couple of months ago. I had some of the very same questions as Tee-Bruce and I for one am glad we all have Stick here to answer questions for us. We all benefit from the knowledge of those with more experience when questions are posed publically as opposed to privately.

You haven't been around very long to figure out if everyone IM'd each other questions, this board would be half the database it is now and consequently not nearly as beneficial or successful as it is.

So lighten up Francis, nobody died and left you King of ARFCOM.

I'm used to stirring up a big pot of gumbo...not shit!!!

I thought about buying one of those too and doing the same thing you plan to do.

Stickman has it right.

As usual some people are late to this thread.

I agree with Stickman that the question asked by the original poster could answer the same question for others. So it is helpful.

But what you don't see is that the orginal poster did change the title of the thread (as suggested by ogcujo) and now it looks more like a normal thread, not a direct question.. I wasn't too harsh on him, I just stated that if he wanted to ask a direct question to a single person, that is better done with IM.
