Beautiful rifles guys, so whats the closest match to Magpuls FDE? Hard to tell from the pics without knowing who painted their furniture and who didn't.

Thanks
Glen

I used Brownell's Alumahyde II Earth Brown on my YHM foregrip above. It is a tad darker than the Magpul FDE as you can see, but it is close. I have tried Aervoe Dark Earth and everything else in a can. The Alumahyde was the closest.

Those look good!

Glad you didn't fall off the bar stool.



200lbs standing on a cheap ass bar stool isnt a good idea. Trust me

Stag Lower painted with Rustoleum Camo in Khaki.
LMT SOPMOD in FDE

Magpul's and LMT's FDE aren't an exact match.

I know this is a Flat Dark Earth thread but is there any love for Monkey Shit Brown?



Sorry for the poor photo.

It'll be very close to the same FDE. From the few pics i've seen of the FDE SOPMOD with the FDE TDVG, you'll be happy.

Arguably the nicest SBR Ive seen in a long time. I just have to ask how you can legally own that col shit in the Republik of California?

Ok Mark
How in the world did you paint the Eotech and Laser and have the letters show up in black?

That is probably the best FULL FDE rifle I've seen.  What version of FDE is that?

Thanks,
It's just a start.

Everything was sandblasted, and DuraCoat'ed Magpul FDE. The barrel and suppressor were sprayed with Woodland Tan DuraHeat (supposed to handle up to 1800 degrees F.). I plan on a variety of enamel camo patterns...I'll be able to clean them off with thinner, without harming my FDE basecoat. The "plastic" parts, minus the stock, are FDE.

As for the lettering, I'll start a thread in a few days explaining that process.

I know..I know...
It's been in-process for over a month

You and ML are the only Arfcommers that know how I did the lettering. I'll share in a few days...pics to be taken of the process.

My rough test for the "special" camo pattern came out REALLY nice (clever and unique).

Mark ....can't wait for that!  Seriously I may have to try it once you post a how to.  It looks beautiful!!!  I'm thinkin something like that would look good on the 13.7 build we were talking about.

Thanks for the kind words...but I'm just getting started.

I've got another upper in the works, with a different configuration; Stealth Upper, Aimpoint, LT BUIS, Etc.

Hopefully, this weekend, I'll get around to the lettering info (I've been really busy )
