    I have read in the other threads/posts about painting m4/m16's. My question. Is it alright to paint magazines as well. just for aesthetic purposes? In my opinion, pangit kasi tignan pag nagfade na yung paint, leaving it a somewhat grayish color.

    Hello

    Yes you can paint aluminum mags. But if you use ordinary over the counter spray paint it will chip off easily even if prepared correctly.

    If available, alumahyde or permaslik G are better alternatives. Permaslik G is very similar to the gray coating on brand new Colt/Okay/NHMTG mags.
