    Jon at the old mill gun shop gave me 2 free 30 rnd mags when I ordered my global arms AR. As you can see from the first pic they are kinda beat (typical in ma, gotta be 18+ years old). Anyway I usually use a ceramic engine paint to redo them but I don't have any and I'm broke so I'm trying this stuff I have laying around (pic below). I'll post finished pics in a bit and (if I remember) down the road a bit after some use.

    Yeah but beat up old mags look kinda funny in a brand spanking new AR. Especially after I dump another $400+ into it. Just for reference, this is what my other mags look like.

    Thanks. Nothing special really. I'm interested in seeing how it holds up.

    Looking good. I'm also wondering how well it'll hold up to usage.

    Lol. You noticed that, eh? No I just keep them there so they aren't just loose in my bag. Trust me I have much better.
