I've been extremely interested in DuraCoating my future Gen. 4 G17 in a light beige color. I have searched the internet with a fine-tooth comb of all the pictures of guns coated in Desert Beige with DuraCoat. There are quite a few, to my surprise. I have put in 6 hours in comparing and contrasting the DuraCoat colors on the Lauer Weaponry website. I did some posting and private messaging and I found out about some reputable guys who are professional DuraCoaters. I found a guy that I like (I was recommended to him by a cool dude here on GT). This is it: http://www.oakridgecustomfinishing.com/index.html. Anyhow, someone PMed me and told me to contact Lauer Weaponry directly as I couldn't quite find the particular shade of beige I wanted. I e-mailed Lauer Weaponry and they were eager to send me 10 samples of duracoated paper in the colors of my choice, ABSOLUTELY free. I was thrilled. I put in my order and they arrived in the mail today. I am sorely, sorely disappointed. The colors on the paper look almost nothing like they do on the website. ACU Light Tan, a very light beige color on the website, has a notable green hue to it. Magpul FDE looks NOTHING like the actual Flat Dark Earth Magpul produces. The color from Duracoat looks like a fresh morning dung instead of a brown/beige color. Multi beige looks downright brown. The only one that seemed OK was Tactical Desert Beige, but far too dark. I will post pics soon. I then contacted LW to order some more samples at $.25 a piece. This was fine and fair, but they wanted $4 for shipping. Bull crap! The envelope I received the samples in today has a postage sticker of $1.90 on it! This was the second disappointment from LW. I replied and stipulated that I only pay $1.90 for the shipping plus the samples I wanted. They have yet to reply. Don't get me wrong, most of the DuraCoated firearms I've seen on the Internet look absolutely fantastic, and I fully intend to DuraCoat my weapon. The color samples are disappointing and their advertisement misleading, is all. Comments, thoughts? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
