FDE spray paint
« on: May 10, 2019, 08:46:40 AM »

Anyone know of any spray paints that can be purchased locally that are close to magpul FDE? It’s only for a trigger guard that I purchased from seekins that said it was FDE but it’s bronze. I know company’s colors differ but this was ridiculous. I figure if I can get it close I’m good with that being it’s such a small part. I don’t want to go through the hassle of returning a $15 part.

I think the aervo on the bottom is just about perfect. Then again every manufacturers FDE seems to be slightly different.

If you want it to be permanent, I would take it down to bare alloy and use Alumahyde. Very durable if cured right, takes two very light coats and a long cure time. People who complain about it peeling are spraying too thick and/or not letting it cure at about 90 degrees for a few days. In the sun is best.

No spray finish is permanent....
