Never thought that I would see an AR that I didn't like, but I just can't even look at this one.

ItDave - that is truly a Barbie Love Model AR. Pink, flowers, shorter stock. I'm sure the gal who shoots this enjoys it immensely.

It's an Ultimak Rail, they are by far the best rails for AKs.

Yup, the rail is an Ultimak, and as Pucker mentioned, they are (so far) the best I've come across.

Here's a link:

Yup, I use their "Military Flats". I've been using them for about 40 years now. The offer pretty much every color you need, but you'll have to get out of the flats if you want the Barbie scheme.

Lately I've been using Brownell's Aluma Hyde II as the base color. You can actually strip the Testors off and redo the pattern without the Aluma Hyde coming off.

If you skipped Hedley's link go back and take a look. Some of the most creepy and bizarre paint jobs I have ever seen.

Rhodesian FAL kit (including lower receiver with RA s/n) returned to wartime colors. Maybe not as nice as my DSA, but she's a solid old warhorse . . .

My M1A Squad/Scout. Stock is from Fred's. Duracote was applied by one of my local shops.
