    I cant decide if I want to guncoat my new build OD Green or Tan. What do you guys think?

    Its a Armalite lower, cmmg A3 upper, A2 stock, 20" cmmg heavy chrome lined barrel. Everything but the barrel will be guncoated.

    Also should I guncoat the scope? idk about this what you think?

    I'd say OD unless you plan to be in the desert. I'd probably leave the scope alone -just my 2 cents.

    I love OD but would be tempted to do a build and 'paint' it tan as a tribute to our folks in the sandbox.

    I have an OD XD and an OD ar-15 SBR. I also recently hit my .223 AK47 furniture with a color that's about 1/2 way between OD and Foliage Green.

    Given the choice of "Baby Poop" vs. "Dirt", I would go with basic black.

    I'd like to see the two tone TAN. I seriously thought about using the Moly on my M4 in Tan. I decided to keep it black and do Tan the next go around, rather it be an AK, M4, FAL, or a SCAR / MASADA if that ever happens:roll:

    It doesn't matter what color your EBR is as long as it's still EVIL!

    Do a digital camo with green, brown, tan and red. Great for Spring, Summer and Autumn in Mizery :p

    I dont' know what the terrain is like in MO, but I would think you should go with OD. Your more of a green state aren't you? I like the FDE and the OD and the Black AR's. My first two builds are both black, can't go wrong with that. But I shoot normally out in the desert, so OD just doesn't cut it for me, plus, Southern CA doesn't get that much rain. So FDE makes more sense for me, but I've seen alot of the recent OD green builds, and they are damn sexy.

    So that means a FG one I built for a friend is not really 'friendly green'?
