I have an MP5SD and 53 that are looking worse for wear.

If so, how much does it cost?

If not, can you recommend any alternatives?

I just repainted my MP5 using Brownell's Aluma Hyde II in matte black. Came out real nice and I've done other guns with it and its held up well. Its pretty close to the original, just a little less shiny. My guns original finish got pretty beat up over time and I reparked it myself a number of years back in my buddys garage. I just never got around to putting the paint back on it till now. Heres a couple of pics:

Full stock, letters arent painted yet.

Looks nice from the pic. Did you have to "Bake it on" in your oven or do they have a better process now?

I'm looking for options myself since I'm going to be having two or three pieces soon to refinish and I'd like to attempt at least one myself. I mean, what's the WORST that I can do, have to re-strip it and pay someone? If I do pull it off, everyone's ahead of the game and I had fun learning something new.

Let me now if you've got any hints or suggestions.

Well I just tried Duracoat black on the furniture and various metal parts of my FN FAL.

The only problem I experienced was getting the right constituency for my airbrush. I found this tricky.

It was possible to obtain a flat or satin finish by varying the quantity of "reducer".

No baking was necessary. I let it cure for a week.

The only thing that puts me off doing am entire gun is having to strip and degrease the whole thing.
