This is THE original deep black finish the Russians used on all small arms from 1960 to today. We have manufactured and sold this since late 2016 to the letter of the original forumula with the BEST US lab grade raw chemicals, this is the only way to make a consistent product. This is NOT a reverse engineered paint, this is chemically 1:1. We are the only source outside of the factory for the paint used on the assembly lines of the russian factiories.

  • THIS IS the paint found on all AKM, AK74, AK100, AK74M, RPK, RPK74, RPK74M, PKM, PKT, Saigas, Veprs, Military Original Bulgarian AK74's and very similar to Polish, East German, Hungarian paint.

    • I am working on the international shipping option
  • 40-60mL covers a complete rifle - Dillution is achieved using lacquer thinner 1:1 or 50/50
  • We are revamping the instructions and will post them here on our blog this weekend 8/7/21
  • The Sheen/Level of gloss is easily controlled to match Russian, Polish, East German or Hungarian kits
  • HVLP is recomended due to the viscous nature of the paint
  • This IS the same paint the factories have sprayed on their guns since 1960, even today. 
    • Most new guns are sprayed in a fashion that it looks much flatter
    • I will issue new instructions with details how to achieve this soon
  • Aleays wear a respirator when spraying solvent based paints

    2+ weeks still waiting for it to ship. Great products, just lacking on s&h side.

    Best paint and most accurate finish especially over previously parkerized finish. Any Izhmash or Maadi rifle looks straight up factory.

    Only paint that looks authentic

    Posted by Nguyen Le on Oct 23rd 2021

    Best paint if you're looking for that deep black the Russian izhmash, tula, or molot guns have, ive tried everything you can buy and only this paint can match the Russian factory finish and texture. Ive even tried Russian Voron paint, dont even bother, that paint has a bright purple sheen once dried, nothing like the izhmash finish. If you want a paint to refinish your Ak, only Russianpaint™ can give you an authentic Russian look, thank you for an awesome product.
