YEAH SELL IT TO ME!!! In all seriousness I think JB weld is for monkeys and has no place on a firearm. I would either weld it or grind it down if possible, maybe try media blasting it to see if that smooths it out nicely.
That's not a bad idea. My daughter is leaning towards a low gloss ceramic black engine paint on this one.AkunaMatata said:Leave the outside pitted with a parkerized finish... It'll look badass.
same stuff different label in this case.Dfisch said:Another friend said to try Devcon epoxy filler. Is that the same as JB Weld. Thanks for the help and keep the ideas coming.
Yes I am. A friend in AZ is sending me a bunch of parts including 2 front trunnions, rivets, a Chinese barrel, fire control system (Tapco double hook) and some odds and ends.m1lk said:you gonna replace the front trun?
The bad pits have been welded and smoothed out (only thing my daughter can't do). She wants to sand it down this weekend and start the paint before the rest of the parts arrive.Captain Will said:You could build up the surface by plating it with copper- builds very fast, and blackens with gun blue.
You'd probably need to tape off the serial number until the very end so it did not get filled in.
I think my daughter likes the pitting, she said that it adds character. Tonight, she was busy tapping her AR rear detent spring hole and installing a set screw. I love watching her work. She cut 1/8 off of the spring, tapped the rear hole with a 4-40 tap and installed a 4-40 1/8 steel set screw. Now she has to do all of our AR's. It only took her 20 minutes to do.Mad Russian said:Flow some silver solder into the deep spots and file down?
