For the AKs that originally had a paint finish, it looks authentic to my eye. And chemicals don't faze it. Wipe it with acetone, nothing happens.fisherman said:Ok Moly Resin is durrable, but what do you think about appearance? I only own blued and stainless firearms and have no issure keeping them all clean and very well maintained. In your opinion, does the Moly Resin finished rifles as apealing to the eye as a proper sandblased blued rifle?
