Does any one know what is the common media used for sand blasting AR lower? I want to archive the matte finish that is found in typical mil-spec lower.

If you have any tip such as PSI, nuzzle type, etc... Please do share as well.

Thanks

Glass beads or a really fine aluminum oxide, perhaps 320 grit.

I use 120 grit aluminum oxide at 45-55 psi. You can use glass beads or AO of any grit it all depends on the finish your looking for, you will have to dial it in with air pressure.
