If it doesn't fit the topic in any of the other forums, and is firearm-related, put it here!

This thing took months to piece together, and lots of polishing, removing anodizing, etc.. I call it "The Silver Surfer". You got any specials like this one?

I think it works if you drive one of these.

Only three things are rattle can, the stock, the dust cover, and the mag. Everything else is the real metal color, including the buffer tube.

I didn't ask for an opinion of it, did I? But, yes, I do like it, very much, it was a long and drawn out process to find all the parts, and keeping it in a very narrow budget. I got the idea when I saw this one.

What I'd really like is something like this

Maybe in the next couple of years I'll put one together like the one above.

I notice you didn't post anything of your own, is there a reason you haven't?

Well done. It's not my thing, but it's quite an accomplishment. Were you able to source any of the parts from manufacturers unanodized?

Some of them yes, but oddly, they were much more expensive than the anodized, weird huh? It isn't hard to deanodize, stinky though. The longest process was polishing the parts, down to 1200 grit wet, and then polishing. I plan on repolishing it soon though, there's some places that need some more time on it.

This reminds me, I wanted to do a grungy AK build with this copper f/x patina.

There's a guy that did an old W123 Mercedes in the stuff and then he clear coated over it.

That's actually pretty cool looking. Not for me, but definitely got some snap to it.

It doesn't matter if you asked for an opinion or not. That's what online forums are for - discussion, feedback, ideas, debate, opinions, etc.

I've never really liked to play show-and-tell.
