    safety selector scratch?

    If I wait a week or so with duracoat will it not scratch off when I move the safety selector the first time.

    Or am I just doomed to have a big gash in my finish?

    Most AKs do have the scratch mark. Maybe someone knows how to keep it from happening, but, what the hell. An AK is...well, an AK.

    Get used to it..

    I think that no matter the finish, the metal on metal contact will leave a scratch.

    Get used to it, I guess...

    On duracoat, it will eventually wear a scratch. My molyresin'd guns do not scratch, but it leaves a dull line.

    One thing that you could do, is bend out the lever a little bit so there isn't as much pressure pushing down on it. You still want some pressure so it stays in place.

    You are doomed. The scratch just sort of goes with the thing. I was real pussy-like on a new one I had one time and put a piece of black tape on the receiver. I generally always bend the selector out so it isn't so tight.

    You can always tell a rarely used rifle - rusty selector scratch.
