    I've got some Krylon Fusion "Satin Espresso" paint, and was thinking of doing my AR stock, fore end, and PG with it.

    I whipped up the above photo with the rifle in question in GIMP just to see what it might look like, and I think it's got potential. :) Of course, this is my only AR, so I figured I'd get as many opinions as I could before talking the plunge. :eek:

    So, what do you think?

    I like it.

    And if you like it, I say go for it.

    Reminds me of the original bake-lite furniture of the AR prototypes. I thought about painting mine but I would like to get ahold of another stock set to do it on in case I want to go back.

    I'm on the fence. I think the aesthetic feature throwing me off is the color of the mag.

    Does the Krylon leave the areas that will hit flesh tacky?

    I'm sure the same place will sell you Krylon Fusion "Flat Black" paint if you change your mind.

    Not a big fan of the color. I got my furniture in Coyote Brown, which is a lot lighter and drabber. Or course, if you like it, that's all that counts.

    I personally don't like it, but it is your gun so do whatever floats your boat.

    Now.. if it was the wood AR furniture that would be worth it if nothing else than for the weird looks at the range.

    I was on the fence, but had to vote no. If the color was just a tad less bright I'd vote thumbs up. It's too close to purple for my taste. Something in a more brownish burgundy would be better if it was mine... which of course it isn't :p

    I like it--expresso brown, cool! Any chance you could paint the mags without affecting loading?

    Be careful using the Fuzion paint. I have used it on motorcycle plastics and it does not work as well as advertized (go figure). Even with proper prep, the paint has been doing nothing but chipping off under the slightest flexing/bump/nudge.

    I like it.

    but that's probably b/c i'm a fan of retro ARs of al types and as mentioned that color is strongly reminiscent of the reddish-brown bakelite furniture found on some early Armalite ARs.

    Personally, I don't like it. If you like it then go ahead, it doesn't matter what I think when it comes to your gun.

    I'm not a fan of it personally, but it is unique and as others have said: If it suits you, go for it! :cool:

    Yeah, not something I'd do, but if you're happy, that's all that counts
