Anyone ever use the caswell plating systems black oxide parkerizing. It is done at room temperature with no fumes. I am going to give it a try using a 6"PVC cylinder with a cap on one end to slide the barrel and receiver into.

if you're in western iowa and it doesn't work you're welcome to come out to omaha and utilize my stainless tank and manganese solution.

Thnaks I am on the east side of Iowa but still have friends in the offut area from when I was stationed there. By the way how did the saiga handguard turnout?

perfectly..just wish the bent flat had turned out the same

i gotta do a new receiver for it; i got a bit overzealous when cutting the notches for the bolt and carrier and made one a bit too big, so the carrier pops out when it's coming back after ejection. no biggie though.

I have had that happen also put in one or two recoil buffers and it will be fixed.

it'll have to be a lot of recoil buffers; it's one of the cutouts for the bolt that's too big.

i'm a tinkering guy anyway. one more flat to bend is just another fun weekend.
