Hello! First post. I have found a wealth of info on the forums in the one day I've been registered. I am currently fixing up a chinese SKS I bought for $250. I plan to get a Tapco T6 dark earth Intrafuse stock and black 20rd mags.

I also plan to use Duracoat on the metal parts (blasted/degreased and ready for paint). I haven't decided on the color yet(black of some sort). I can't justify paying $5 for a paint chip. Can anyone tell me which Duracoat black is the closest match to the Tapco black mags? I am afraid to order the Duracoat until I'm sure it won't starkly contrast the mag color or vice versa. Right now I'm leaning towards matte or flat.

After looking at several pics, I think I'm leaning more towards HK semigloss black. The matte black looks really flat. I wish the Duracoat website had better example pictures!

You can buy the intrafuse in black...thats what I did. Or am I missing something? Just paint the mags as well! That's what most people do:)

Now I feel like an idiot! I wanted the stock to be dark earth, and the metal to be flat black. I wanted the clip to match the black metal, but it hasn't occurred to me that I could paint the clip with the same paint as the metal parts:o Thanks for kick starting my brain.
