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....

But the longest most durable is by far cerakote. If you need it to match, do it right the 1st time and your done
