What's the finish?

So, you finished the EOTech and then re-engraved the markings?


Thanks guys

It's KG gunkote FDE.
Since I have access to a Laser engraver I thought why not put the original marking back on it. I haven't started on the VIS yet.  My boss wants to engrave " The E-lib-inator" on it. He's got many other ideas buuuuuttt some are too much.

For being a "Flat Dark Earth" thread a lot of these are awful shiny.


Whats the difference between FDE and Coyote Brown?


5.0, you're not married are you? My wife would murder me if she found a rifle drying in the bathtub!

Nice rifle there.

Is that a 14.5" mid-length?
Link Posted: 4/6/2007 4:06:31 PM EST

Thanks,

Not quite 14.5".  Its WOA SS 13.7" with a F2comp permanently attached. Whats not so good is the mid-length gas system i put on it.  I know a lot more about AR's now then when i ordered it. It seems to run fine but i think that it will be a little picky when it comes to ammo.

THat one is really nice.  I'm curious what you used to finish the barrel?  The rest of the rifle?
Link Posted: 4/13/2007 1:32:20 AM EST
Oops, sorry.  I just saw that you used GunKote.  I should read through the whole thread first.    GunKote on the whole rifle?

This is a Stag 6.8 marked lower with a 16" Noveske barrel.  It is probably a shade darker than FDE (closer to Coyote Brown I think).

They are KAC (from Operation Parts) and started as a lighter and pinker tan. I repainted them to match the rest. I have seen a better looking KAC tan rail panel ( closer to FDE) on some other members rifles, but haven't been able to get my hands on them.

ETA: I just looked at the Operation Parts web site, and it looks like they might have the darker colored ones-Coyote Brown-but are currently out of stock

Testor's Model Master 30118 "Field Drab"  As you may know, 30118 is the federal color code for Flat Dark Earth, but it has gotten lost in the translation somewhere as Testor's 30118, that they reproduce of the federal color chips, is much darker. It disappears just fine either way and I've added a camo pattern over it now anyway.

Nice.

After GP moved from TX to VA and was absorbed by LWRC, and then LWRC had the HFG fiasco, I was hoping LWRC would change their name to GP and those nice looking lowers would become plentiful.

It is an LWRC 6.8mm SRT Carbine and it came engraved like that from the factory.
