I have painted my AR before, and I think I'm getting ready to do it again. The last time I did it, I tried to paint just the lower, and I wanted it to look factory perfect, as if it came FDE from the factory. I used Krylon's firearms paints, which stayed very soft and seemed to absorb oils, and was never very durable. This time I'm interested in just hanging it from some rope/string and painting the entire thing. I just want a paint that is easy to use, flat in finish, and more durable (dries harder). I'm looking for something in a can, not some special type of paint I need a compressor for. Any ideas are appreciated. I'm looking at FDE, perhaps with a bit of patterning. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
