Default What do you think?

What do you guys think of this. How you think it looks? Good? Bad? indifferent? I dont care, i am looking for honest opinions..i'm a big boy with thick skin.

I wished i had some bright red paint to do the "fire" engraved letters.

Call me prarnoid, but i "blackout" the serial numbers for the photo op...the serial number IS still there! I didnt highlight that engraving...i left that blackened.

fmj,

Looks good and I think the Red in the fire position is a great idea!

Looks good, fmj. I obscure SNs too. No need to put it out on the web.

Thanks guys. A couple of others here have done it with theirs and i thought "that kinda cool, i should do that some time" so i did. Wife and youngest were against it...until they saw the finished product....they like it now that they see it.

That looks really good! I'm not an AR guy, so I originally thought it was factory!
