You're killing me with this!!!!

The next phase of my AR building will be custom colors. I've got to try it on at least one.

Why would you do that to a Colt?

Because it's a tool, built to serve a purpose, like most tools are.

I don't see an auto sear pin, probably just overly rotated due to the pistol grip and detent not being installed.

And with KG, you paint the rifle the base color, and spray paint the pattern you want. If you dont like the color you added - just zip strip it off. The KG stays and even protects the plastic. Tested it yesterday





That's what I've been planning to try.

Why not? I dont understand why so many people are amazed at the appearance of any of my firearms. They are just tools, nothing else. If you want nice and pretty, collect ceramic cats




Ceramic Cats!!!!

Steve,

If I wanted to send an entire AR to you for coating, would it be best to send it all in parts, or as a complete rifle?

What do you want to do with it? If you are just going for a solid foundation for more paint, paint it together. Painting all the pieces individually will obviously cost more than just painting an upper and lower.....
I'm only doing this one in pieces to see what it takes in terms of paint, time, work, etc..



Definately a solid color as a base for a camo pattern with Krylon or Alumahyde II. I would just want KG Kote to be as thorough as possible.

I really don't want to do this to any of my current herd so I guess I'll have to buy a new rifle from ADCO. How will I get it past the wife?[/thinking to myself]

I'm alittle behind on the coatings industry.
Am reading the curing process correctly, 212 degrees for 2 hours and it's as tough or tougher than a phosphate finish? And I can just order it from Brownells?
Are there any particular lubes that have to be used with the moly dis properties of Gun Kote.
I guess it's time to do a search on KG!

No worries. It still looks good!!! Personally I would say OD and black for the whole firearm. Does this finish wear at all, or is it comparible to finishes like ArmorTuff, Birdsong T, Metacol, Bearcoat, etc.?

Thanx.

Are you asking about the complete rifle, or the multi colored upper I just posted pics of?



I am working on a new rifle and am going to want the upper, lower, and barrel done OD.
