    Default Here it is

    Did you just let it air dry or did you do some type of drying method with it? I've got two coats of color on mine with two coats of flat over that to try and give it some durability.

    Ok,
    I know this is an AK board, but come on, there has got to be more AR's than this, I will open it up and say just post your AR, painted or not. What config are you running?

    My nephew with my DPMS CMP AR-15.

    I have a tax stamp on the way to make it an SBR. Just a matter of time.

    Default Another pic

    Ok,
    So my last pic was half way done, this is about 90% done. Just waiting on the internals. So, what do you think?

    Not a AR but Krylon paint.

    Default Better than Krylon

    For the metal parts on the gun I like using a bake on paint insted of Krylon that comes off with hand sweat or spray barrel cleaners.
    I did a Polish Tantal with VTH Engine Enamel's black satin & baked it at 200deg. for 30 min. This coating is so tuff I scrubed it with acetone & it didn't budge. It is chemical resistant & can take up to 550deg. It comes in a lot of colors from flats to glosses & metallic.

    The fixed stock is interchangable with the folding stock.
    VHT Engine Enamel™

    I'm sure it will work for AR's too.
    Here is my AR15 it shoots the same cal. as the Tantal above 5.45x39.
