    Blasting media

    Getting ready to building some more ak's, a friend of mine that has a blasting cabinet and he has offered to blast them for me if I supply the media I was thinking of using Aluminum Oxide and Harbor Freight carries two types 70 and 120 grit, not sure which one is the best for this application, any help will be appreciated.

    What are you going to be blasting? just some flats or what?

    120 at about 90 psi will give you a surface/finish closer to most original AKM's than 70 will. 70 if you want a duller coarser finish or if you have minor wear scratches or polished out tool marks to cover up.
