Very happy. Guys, never painted a rifle before like this. I did a Rhodie PTR91, but that's.....different. LOVE the gloss black and wood..... Its probably a little too glossy, but I am ok with that. Used Engine Enamel. Just wish I could find the Full Circle book reasonably, and a reasonable G3 Bayonet for it. Forgive the yugo surplus oiler and pouch on the sling. I am ANAL about rust, and put those on all rifles so I am never without oil.....

Will try to throw up pics of my rhodie later...

Wow, really really nice! I don’t think the black is too glossy at all.

Looks pretty good.

Regarding the scope of the paint, it looks like you hit the receiver, backplate, barrel, cocking tube, the upper portion of the trigger housing including the trigger guard, and associated small metal parts through the flash hider.

Did you paint the pistol grip? magazine? rear sight drum?
Looks like you left the bottom of the grip frame on the trigger housing and the rear sight mech parkerized?

Not bad at all.

Yeah, ha, you HAD to notice the bottom of the grip! ;). Left the wood alone for now.

Years ago, I was up all night on the farm sitting next to a large pond on my grandmother's land that had been taken over by beavers. I had strict instructions to dispose of as many as I could. Sitting in waist high grass until 2am with my first wasr10 AK....did not notice the dew ALL over it. 3 am turned in, laid rifle on tent floor, and woke up with mild surface rust all over it. Had NOTHING on me, nothing in my grandfather's shop....so I took the old farm 76 Chevy truck, pulled the dipstick and wiped it on a cloth about 20 times, and scrubbed it as hard as I could. Saved it...but never again.

The early G3s with wood are just gorgeous rifles. Need to repaint the selector markings, just waiting on the paint to FULLY cure for a few more days.
