I just acquired a Hungarian Sa85m, short tube, FEG import, post ban AK. I think the finish has been bubba-fied by someone, but I am not sure. Also, I have never seen a shepherds hook like this. Is this a legit retaining pin? Any advice would help.

The finish on the prebans seemed a little flatter than that.

in the photo it looks like a glossy rattlecan finish to me but its hard to tell without seeing it in person and touching it. Hungarian finishes are absolutely outstanding.

The hook looks like it's a modified auto sear spring. I did something similar with my AK-63D kit until I could get a proper one.

We call that extree protection in Texas Thicker paint run the surplus ammo all day no corrosion ain't that right

I would sand it off, bag up the dust and mail it back to the seller.

I thought it was freakin' paper clip, lol. And definitely a rattle can paint job. Or maybe it was just poured on.

If Shepard hook works than it works but yeah that has seen some Crayola Gloss Black spray. These were originally some of the flattest black rifles I have seen. Almost Matte but very well done on finish.
