Agreed, shipping is getting expensive unless you order other things you might need.
It seems you come OK if you order $50 or more at one time. You might order some things you will need in the future to ease the pain.

I've done that more than once too.

I don't even need much either which makes paying that much even harder. I am just going to paint a Aimpoint Micro T1, and a few small "Lower parts" To bad someone doesn't just have half a can they don't need I could buy from them...............ANY TAKERS

I just sprayed a FF tube and scope mount with Aluma-hyde II Coyote to match my Magpul furniture tonight. The color is pretty close to the Magpul FDE, but a little too shiny on metal parts if you ask me. I waited until I needed some other things to order a can. There's ALWAYS something I need from them, so it didn't take long... LOL You can also hold off until they run a free shipping or similar promo deal. I do agree though, for the incredibly slow shipping, the costs from Brownells are crazy. They're service is great and I've never had a botched order from them, but it takes FOREVER to get to NJ (probably UPS's fault more than Brownells').

I'd send you the remains, but I think I want to spray a few more parts before I ditch it.

On a side note, if you know anyone with a dealer or LEO account with Brownells, the can is a few bucks cheaper. It's not a ton, but enough to maybe ease the pain of paying for the shipping.

Diapers and Politicians should be changed often, and for the same reasons.

Thanks! Maybe I can wait.....I am just impatient. I will have all my parts for my lower by tomorrow I think, and I was hoping to get the parts painted before putting it all together. I was thinking of painting the upper and lower, but instead I am going to paint the parts in FDE to accent the rest of the rifle.

I have FDE KNS pins
FDE B.A.D ASS

Want to paint
Forward assist FDE
MAgpul BAD lever FDE

Maybe my Aimpoint Micro T1 also.
