View Full Version : Best paint for grips, stocks, and other non-metal parts?
12-01-2006, 9:31 AM
I have a Magpul PRS stock in FDE and I am planning on getting one of the new generation Monsterman grips when they are available. Does anybody have any experience with colormatching a plastic grip to match the Magpul FDE color? Also, I don't really want to invest in spraygun equipment so just a normal air-dry spraycan would be what I am looking for. Any ideas, suggestions?
Also, can you "bake" plastic grips and stocks in the oven? I know it's only like 300 degrees but I don't know what the melting temp of these parts is and the thought of putting plastic parts in the oven just seems a little risky to me.

Krylon fusion is made for plastic and comes in a spraycan

Thanks for the tip. I didn't really see a color that was close to flat dark earth, though.

TR Gunkote in Flat Tan is a really close match to FDE.

Norrell Arm's Flat Tan is real close also. Have heard many success stories on AR15.com of people spraying and baking Magpul stocks in ovens.

I really don't want to spend more than I will for the grip for a spraygun and a compressor. I see that the Alumahyde product comes in a sraycan, but it doesn't appear that their "earth brown" is anywhere close to what my "flat dark earth" on my stock looks like.

Hmm. Well if you have a compressor and airbrush, HPLV, or anything like that, than just get duracoat. I've heard they have some stuff close to that.
Do you know what color it is for the Duracoat products?
