I have a bunch of rusty AR parts

So I started soda blasting, but I need to work on it some more.



I have a few questions. WTF happened to that barrel that it became crenulated, the crown was rusty when I found it, is it trashed?

What would you do with these parts, What kind of AR would you build? I was thinking SBR 300 BLK and chop the rail.This will not be a defensive rifle due to lack of forward assist, a no name chepo BCG and a UTG buffer tube

Would cerakote hold up on the barrel nut? I plan to cerakote all the things.

Sounds like the perfect excuse for a budget build. The stuff near the crown is normal carbon/copper build up. Normally its not seen because the flash hider is in place. For about $100 more in parts you will have a good truck gun or panic profit gun.

A little cerakote and that gun will look brand new.

That's what I was thinking... I probably work on soda blast some more tomorrow and attempt to cerakote it


I think Ill dedicate this gun to running steel and being an all around beater

Seconded. I've seen what looks like a washer of fouling come out when the FH on an older rifle was removed.

I'm no expert, but floridas humidity + steel = rust if you don't wipe them down with some type of oil.

Yup that is true

But I keep my house at 40% percent humiditity so it will be fine for now with out oil

I don't want to grease it up just yet because I am going to blast it in a few day again and carakote it in a few weeks


Also do I have to get rid of the anodizing to properly apply cerakote?

No just needs degreasing. And you shouldn't have to blast the barrel either unless there is deep pitting, just give it a good rub down with fine steel wool and CLP to get rid of the surface rust, then degrease. Hard coat anodizing and parkerizing are great surfaces for cerakote application.
