I am thinking about trying it on my A1 stock, and a couple of RAS panels. Yes, no, maybe?!?!

Also, does anyone know what size of panel I need for the top rail of my RAS II?? I know it's not the 11rib.

[url]http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=12&t=175663&w=myTopicPop[/url] Check out Hawkeye's Dissy. I did up an A2 stock just to test durability. CLP has NO effect on it, even after 14hrs of soaking. I smacked it a couple of times with a plastic mallet and it left barely noticable mars. Krylon is The Paint From Hell.

Hey, thanks Lump...

I've used the Krylon and the Brownell's Aluma-Hyde II...both work great, I prefer the Aluma-Hyde a bit more, but it takes a week to two weeks to "cure"...The Krylon dries or cures much quicker...Both work great!!!!!

Right on Lumpy -- the Krylon Ultra-Flats work extremely well, but are hard to find in all the color codes offered. FWIW, I've always been partial to a little fire-proofed jute and burlap wrap as well -- came up with a little elastic cord john that saves continuous re-wraps. O'DubhGhaill, out.

I'm happy with mine so far. Only time will tell. Going to be doing another rifle this weekend, hopefully. Pics to come.

The stock on my M700 was done with a $10 Krylon kit from Wal-Mart. [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid91/p3bf8066f15e1b30f1380190afeafaaaf/fa602bb4.jpg[/img]

The SPR grip and A1 buttstock are Krylon OD. The PRI tube came that color, so not sure what it is. [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/Attachments/DownloadAttach.asp?iImageUnq=9365[/img]

Picked up a Krylon camo kit at WallyWorld yesterday. They didn't have the Dune color I wanted. I guess it is between the brown and khaki in the kit. I think I am going to start with just my stock, RAS panels, and grip. May have to wait though. It is pretty cool here today, and my tool shed is unheated. Thanks for all the good input guys! Monty

Keep in mind, you have plenty of paint to do a 2x4 practice run first... Have fun and post pics.

I used the flat black on one of the A1 furniture sets from Northridge. After a little sanding and two coats the furniture looks very nice and thus far the finish wears like iron. Krylon is good stuff!

I have a standard grip I am going to try first. Should I rough it up a bit before painting, to help it stick?? Monty

I dont think you need to.

Good, I went ahead and did it before anyone had posted a response. Also did one RAS panel. Just put the second coat on the panel. Just finished the first coat on the grip.

Wonder how this stuff would work with a magpul rail panel? I wanted OD, but got something different with the cammo OD. Whatcha'll think?

'Been "travelin'" a bit. When back, I've been indulging a Curio and Relic bent it seems. The Krylon resists chipping off plastic and metal as well as I've seen, but no paint is impervious of course. I usually wipe/spray the part with some Powder Blast to remove any oil. Some nice work in pictures here -- I dig the autumn stencils. Got some catching up to do so have a great holiday, Lumpy and all, and enjoy the news of the capture of the #1 spider-hole-dwellin' critter in Iraq! His trial might give Jacko's and the others a run for their money...one hopes anyway...the sentence should for sure [chainsawkill]. O'DubhGhaill, out.
