i think you got a pint or somthan

8oz will do 4-5 recs
1 full ak
might have alittle left over
and you might be alittle short
just depinds on how you spray


btw you should buy it by the gal
if you only need alittle buy a gal and sell what you dont use to local people
after you look at the prices you will see why i say that

Wow, you're much more efficient with it than I am. I use a little more than 5 ounces to do one full AK, including all the screws, pins, etc.

Ditto - 1 gun. About. If you run lean.

Quarts, however, will do three very well. With trigger groups, small parts, receiver-barrel group, 1 steel mag, I generally use 10 Oz. per gun. You don't get more than 3X paint - you are just using what you have to maximum efficiency. Buy quarts.

A lot would depend on how guys apply it. I see some guys are using a small airbrush that would be very good at not wasting paint, and i see guys using what i would call an auto body touch up gun that would throw out a lot more overspray. Overspray=waste. I have both myself and plan on using the airbrush for barrels and internal parts like the inside of a reciever where i need a narrow spray pattern, and the touch up gun on the outside of the receiver and other large things like mags.
