1. Take PMag to paint shop
2. Ask the nice man for a sample pot of the correct type of paint matched to the colour of your pmag.
3. Test
4. If it's right, order 5 gallons
5. If not, take it back to be darkened/lightened, get a new sample pot...return to 3.

Take a sample to a Sherwin Williams Automobile Paint store.  They should be able to match it for you and put it in spray cans if you want.

Sherwin Williams has matched off the wall wood stain colors for me, they should have no trouble matching that for you.

Not knocking FDE or anything, but the standard BDU pattern looks pretty slick.   A while back I got on a FDE kick on everything, and near the end I got pretty sick of the color.  BDU or OD looks great man, but to each his own I guess

It's CARC substitute.  Not the real stuff.  I've used their stuff.

I duracoated my bicycle FDE.

It's pretty tactical, if I do say so myself.

Not sure you will need 5 gallons if you are going to spray it from a gun.  I have painted cars with multiple coats with under a gallon.  Then again, maybe it does.

This is so not a tag.
