Yugo Tokarev refinish

Post by starman » Thu Jun 18, 2020 2:21 am

I hope you guys like this one better than the first Star I did. Anyway I powder coated this with "olive gray" that didnt come out like the color chip which was greener. You get what you get. I got a pistol lanyard for it because I like that idea.
Of course you probably dont.

It looks good. Almost too good for a Commblock firearm.

Out of curiosity how much did the refinish set you back?

just a harbor freight electro static spray gun @ 60 bucks and a toaster oven. Which I already use on cast bullets.

Took it shooting today and I'm happy with it, except for the gritty magazines.
I'm liking candy apple red for the other. The gray doesnt get hot in the sun out here like black does.

Red with black grips would look nice. I would think red with white grips would look nice but I bet it would be a display piece only because white would pick up dirt.

Just some thoughts.

I like it. If you want a challenge for gun #2 what about something in Der Still style.

Looks more like an homage to Tron, which never got its due.

I never saw the first one, but the one with Jeff Bridges was amazing! I loved that movie.

That's it, I think. It was some kind of Sci-Fi.

Also: That site is real kick ass :D

Jeff Bridges was in both of them, he played the same character.

Granted, it doesn't use primary colors but it does emphasize the straight line and the tight rigid angles of the form. I suppose maybe Neuvo Der Stijl would be more correct.

No primary colors and all of the angles are too obtuse or too acute. None of them are right.

I was thinking either Tron or maybe something from the Borderlands video game series.
