I was walking around the hardware store and found the Krylon display among those cans of fun I found some Krylon Special Purpose Non-Skid and thought it would be perfect for refinishing some mags.

By adding Non-Skid to magazines I could be solving a problem that does not exist, but it was worth a shot.

After three hours of anxious anticipation I am happy with the end result .

I taped off the top and bottom so that I would not have any trouble inserting the mag or putting the baseplate back on.


Now time to do the other two mags.

The point of that is?

im guessing so that he could get a better grip on the mags

While it will increase your grip on the mags, it will probably also increase your mag's grip on each other. If you use any sort of pouch that has 2 or more mags pressed together, I'm guessing that you may get an extra mag flying out when you yank a mag out of your pouch. It also may cause the mags to be difficult to remove from the pouch itself.

Still, A+ for effort ;)

I am only going to do three range mags. And I do not mag-cinch my range mags or put them in a pouch, so this works for me.

But you are right they would hang up on each other, so that is why I am leaving my other mags the way they are.

It was just something to do to pass the time

Cool.

Not a bad idea other than the aformentioned. Probably would fine at the range especially on a hot day with sweatty hands. Let me ask you this. Care to guess on your thickness after spraying and how it would react on wood or varnished wood? Does the can have any specs on the operating temperature range? I'm thinking it might be better than what I've seen done with truckbed liner.

Copied this off the label.

Surfaces: Most concrete, vinyl tile, metal, and wood. Not for use on plastic, fiberglass, tubs,
or showers.
Coverage: 20 square feet.
Temp: 40F and 85F Use in low humidity



It is extremely thin. Like two coats of spraypaint.

Hope this helps

I've used this stuff on nasty AK wood furnature, It works great for that.

You will have the same problem with original-style Magpuls. Use modular single mag pouches and eliminate a lot of problems at once.

I think he had an interesting idea and experimented with it, nothing wrong with that.

very cool idea.... here's an enhancement idea:

what if you only coated the front and back edges of the mags, and not the sides at all? When you grab a mag, and your fingers are on the front and your thumb on the back, you'd get a better grip surface. BUT, you wouldn't make the mags any wider or cause two (or more) side by side in a pouch to "grab each other"... might even help hold them in the pouch when pulling it's neighbor out.

could move the idea from a "range only" use for general use.

just my 2/100 of a buck.

Yep. That's what I was thinking. Thanx JJ & Saint!
