Painting my AR
how should i go about painting my ar15? I want to paint it a good multicam. should i use krylon? i know it will eventually chip off but i shot a buddies AR15/M16 he used in Afghanistan that was still in pretty good shape

I think I remember yours is a Carbon 15? If so I don't know what to choose for the composite receivers. Maybe others will have ideas.

yeah its the carbon. My buddy travis has the carbon too lol. ill have to ask him if he used just krylon

Quentin 01-05-2012 02:03 AM

Your buddy had a C15 in Afghanistan? In combat? :eek:

MichaelBarton 01-05-2012 02:10 AM

well it had the carbon lower, he replaced the upper. He was a tech engineer or something so he never engaged any ragheads lol

Regardless of MOS I can't believe they let that slide.

im not sure if it was his carry gun. he had two or three guns while he was there. i might be mistaken. it could have been his A.R.M.S. upper with Spikes lower he used

Ive used krylon on a lot of firearms, both metal and composits. All with great sucsess. To help keep chiping and flaking use a mate clear coat.

MichaelBarton 01-05-2012 02:59 AM

alright. ill go to walmart and pick up some paint. thinking about doing multicam

MichaelBarton 01-05-2012 03:20 AM
