That gold was a pain in the &@#%, finally figured that I had to float it off with rubbing alcohol.

Very nice!

Interesting... I also have a QD US Army Edition lower with ACS. Really like their billet receivers.

I don't know how hard it was to paint the logo gold but it looks really sweet.

The rollmark in gold was difficult. First I tried the regular 'fill and wipe.'
That smeared it everywhere leaving the 18k gold flake dull and, well, just looking like crap.

So I double checked the packaging, and noticed that clean up was suggested with alcohol (rubbing).

So I tried that and all it did was thin the paint. Next I tried a light coat of alcohol and a dry paper towel to 'lift' off the gold. Bingo!

I still have some of the 18k flakes outside the rollmark, they are very small, but I'll get back to it. I am having too much fun shooting it!

Next up will be a PDW with the Marines rollmark or maybe Navy in silver and gold.

Get yourself some nice matchgrade ammo, some glass, and make itty bitty holes in targets! That WOA barrel is beggin, no pleading for some 69gr / 75 gr match grade made grade stuff! Cloverleafs at 100 yards! Gogogo!

I reload. Currently investigating Hornady 75gr and SMK 77gr loads with varget, cfe223, blc2, and a couple others.

With what I have learned and shot so far, I can put rounds on a man-sized target at 600 yards with open sights @50% of the time. So its begging for some glass. Should be a shooter IF (and its a big if) I do my part.
