Lots of Rustoleum sand, earth brown, and black. Flat finish and completed with 5 coats of matte clear enamel.

Very nice, inspirational. My wife (very talented artist) has said she would paint one of my ARs. I asked her to use colors so it looks like my Belgian Malinois. Tan, fawn, reddish brown and some black brendal pattern.

Post-apocalyptic? Why?

If properly used, this tool can be used to avert the apocalypse.

why did you clear it? a high gloss finish kind of defeats the purpose of painting it, doesn't it?

Some clear is great for this. Krylon's "matte finish" is a good one

Or just paint it, use it, and get the same look while also using the rifle the way it was intended. I agree the shine makes it looks bad.

Wrong mounting system to be a real NT4, so I say fake, just like the wear on the paint job.

Its pretty easy to wear in a paint job to if you actually use the rifle. Looks good regardless though OP

Meh, if you like the paint, who cares what anyone else thinks? I'd still ditch the fake can as well as the laser if it's fake. Unnecessary weight for nothing other than looks. Maybe get a weaponlight as well. Other than that, cool rifle!

i like the IR laser incase you have to call in A10 airstrikes on approaching FSA hoarde.

As I suspected, but was not positive. I am an AAC guy

Not sure I would want the extra weight for no usable reason.

So, I assume the laser is fake, too?

It's either fake or a restricted unit (older PEQ-15 or current LA-5). The ATPIAL-C has the safety set screw storage on the ejection port side of the unit, something the OP's does not have.

ATIPIALs are like $5000

The laser is a legit laser and the LED light is super bright. Why would anyone want/need a real ATIPIAL when you would only gain IR and need NVG to work with it? Functional art meets home protection. :)

ATPIAL is thirteen hundy. Not exactly tree fiddy but not 5 tousand needer.

ATPIAL-Cs are nowhere near that much, brother. More like $1,200ish. Some of us have real ones as well as NV to go with them.

My one suggestion, if you're actually using this in an HD role, I'd ditch the cheapo light/laser in favor of a more proven/reliable weaponlight.

I call the can fake. Look at the slots on the bottom. He is also in Masshole land. No cans or good stuff. I call airsoft. Prove me wrong...

Paint looks not too bad though.

I don't think it's airsoft. He posted a while ago before all the mods he has done and it was most definitely an M&P Sport. Don't think they make any airsoft clones of that particular rifle.

As for the fake can, I'm pretty sure he can't have a FH in MA. If he didn't want a brake, I can see why he'd go for the fake can if he was going to be stuck with a bare muzzle anyway.

About the only thing I'd change on the rifle, OP, would be the addition of a quality weaponlight/ditching the cheapo LAM. Other than that, fuck all the haters.

Hey all. It is an AR15 M&P Sport, 5.56 and not airsoft. :-)

The ATIPIAL is a clone, but I am going to get a real one because I love the laser and light. That said, it is hard to justify the cost now when the laser and light works fine. The suppressor is a barrel shroud because I am in the communist sate of MA and my barrel is naked with no threads. This is a nice alternative and sort of says F.U. to the powers that be in case they see it and freak out. I am new to ARs and I am building another from scratch (85% done) on an Anderson lower. I always wanted to do a replica, but a real gun that works.

Another pic...

Like I already said, fuck the haters man. Before worrying about the real deal ATPIAL-C, pick up a quality weaponlight. Something as cheap as a Surefire G2X Tactical + a Viking Tactics mount can be had for well under $100 and works great.

When you build your next rifle, paint it a solid color and just throw it down a hill a few dozen times. Paint job will look super duper beat up.
