Default New Foliage Green

So I just finished building my new AR and did a Duracoat Magpul foliage green refinishing job. It came out pretty good if I do say so myself

Nice. Foliage is my favorite color for an AR after black. Those pics (on my monitor at least) don't do the color justice.

How many rounds until the shell deflector paint starts to fade?

Thanks guys, the light in my bathroom did not do it justice. The duracoat is supposed to last "forever". I have yet to shoot it I'm letting it cure for the full 3 weeks.

not bad, shading a bit off, kinda like Larue's UDE vs Magpul's foilage, but still pretty cool looking.
