AK-47 - Black Laminate

The AK47 Black Laminate was added in 2013, in the Vertigo Collection, which was added around the same time as the Arms Deal update, where tradable skins were first added. This skin is the first mil-spec skin for the AK. Players often put stickers on this gun, as they stand out against the colours. In this Black Laminate, the body, barrel, front and clip remained unchanged (all the metal parts). In the wooden parts (such as the grip and the stock), there has been a hydrographic process in which blue swirls have been painted on the skin, giving it its blue texture. One interesting quirk about this gun is that its look doesn’t change much with higher wear, but the wood does turn darker when the wear gets close to well-worn, so there isn’t as much attraction to getting a factory-new instead of a lower wear, as they look roughly the same. This gun costs $20 USD for a normal field-tested, but can rise to around $100 USD for a StatTrak field-tested. Because of low demand, prices have sunk, and it is now a rarely seen skin, but still worth a lot.
