I did an FAL in SOCOM color and was very happy with the out come. Its a nice bluish grey.. I do hear the parker color is nice also although I've never used it..

If you do decide to do it yourself please let us know how easy it was if it was, and post pics of finished product i've been thinking about it for a while now.

Its so easy its scary, you'll want to Dura Coat eveything! The results are amazing and if you screw up, just re-shoot it!..

Just do it. I did a shotgun, rifle and a SAR-8 this last week. All came out great and VERY easy to do.

What colors did you use? And did you just spray you rifle all assembled or you did it parts by parts?

Its Desert Tan (for the base) and Desert Lizard for the highlights.. I did the base in large parts and did the highlights fully assembled
