Thanks, thats good info. I wish I had asked that a week ago. Do you know what the time frame is for recoating? I know it flashes quickly but cure time is weeks. I love Mick's too. I did my AR & Glock in woodland tan. But here's a pic of my XCR in Magpul FDE. (it's not all that shinny in real life)

Mick, that two-tone is really good. The purpose of camo is to break up the outline of an object. So you dont have a silhouette of whatever your trying to hide. I like my guns in solid colors, but I still have a "gun" shaped silhouette, just in another color. Yours really breaks up, especially if you fightin on beige carpet ;D

I've found that just adding a light natural color (like tan or khaki) furniture to my ARs really breaks up that rifle shape. I did some white furniture that would be great in snow, but stands out too much around here. I have some in a light Gray, if for some reason I need an AR in a city environment.

GR8, I did a bunch of AR furniture last winter just playin around with some of their colors. Some of it is mentioned above. But their all a little shiny, I just picked up their Flat Clearcoat, but I may just get that Flatener and overcoat these things. I didn't know about the time limit, but I know the product doesn't like long-term storage without shaking up the bottles once in a while.

I have several wires and I hang everything by some part that I wont be coating (usually vertically) so I can rotate the item to get all those angles in one coat. the second and third coats are harder since its hard to tell where I just sprayed. I usually have a shop light at eye level to cast a shine on the wet parts. I even wear one of those LED "head lights".
