I am having my custom rifle built.
I am trying to pick a color to paint my action and barrel on my AICS build.
I have 2 sets of AICS skins, one set is factory OD, and then the other set, I will paint it probably Magpul FDE. I want a color which will work with either skin.

I am considering a "brown".... but I am open to suggestion.. maybe something like this:


I haven't decided whether I will also get my scope(NF NXS) painted or not, but as of now, I will leave it in back... also I will go with a Badger FTE brake and I will also leave that brake black... this look seems to be pretty good too:


Hmm... maybe like this?


Or, maybe I should just leave everything except the skins black...


Help me out, bros.....

PS. I think will go with 26" w/ FTE brake. It will be LONG anyways...

A dark gray would look pretty decent with either color. Check out the "Parker" color from Duracoat. My longslide 1911 is painted with it, and it coordinates well with the Coyote Brown Ergo grips. Plain black looks pretty good in that last pic too though.

A full digital camo would be nice.....
