Anyone done it yet?

Thinking of painting my first AR and my KE arms build makes the most sense.


Think I’ll have to rough up the parts first?

Use plastic specific paint?

Crappy older pic of one I did. I didn't do any kind of special prep for it, used the regular Krylon Camo paint.

Seems to be holding up OK. Does wear off the plastic faster than on metal. Once they get really worn I usually just respray them.
