Here you can see where I filled in this AK pistol sight engraving with Lacquer Stik white
I also filled in safe and fire in white and red lacquer.
Here is a Century AK pistol coated in Cerakote h burnt bronze
The original finish was black parkerizing.
I left the barrel under the hand guard alone.
This traditional gun finish is easily scratched off and gives only modest rust protection.
its color range is either grey or black.
It also requires oil to be applied at frequent intervals.
Cerakote is much harder, rust proof and comes in many colors.
There is even a color that mimics parkerization!
Cerakote c is better for barrels as it is even more heat resistant than the h series
