    Well, I literally have this

    http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m120/firebretha/firearms/AR-7801.jpg

    And Im wanting to do the two tone thing with the grip as well. Just wondering if anyone had a Black MIAD grip that wouodnt mind parting ways with the inserts. Or we could trade. 1 person has a black grip w fde inserts, the other fde grip with black inserts. I dont wanna go buy a 30 $ grip for something cosmetic thats that small. Let me know if anyone can help a brother out. Also, if anyone has a FDE Aimpoint rubber cover like the one pictured that isnt using it ill make it worth your while if you wanna part with it. (Send you some ammo or something) Thanks guys

    Email Magpul. They will likely send you the piece.

    Rit clothing dye. It will work to make your FDE insert black. Google Rit dying Magpul furniture. There are YouTube videos.

    Looks good. Glad it worked out to your liking. Hopefully it cost you less than the shipping involved in a swap with someone.

    I like good "budget" tips and tricks.

    Looking good. If you can't find a cover for your Aimpoint, you can have it cerakoted in FDE.

    Yeah Im debating buying the chinese knockoff aimpoint cover off ebay. Ive heard people say its literally the exact same thing. I dont wanna spend 45 $ on a daggum cover. I will if I have to though, they look sweet. Any experience with the knockoffs?
