I had been thinking the very same combo for an R1..Looks real nice !!

Thanks for the compliments, guys....I used I think three coats of green and two coats of poly - the top coat applied from about a foot away to give a slight pebbling effect, which unfortunately can't be seen in the picture. http://www.fnfal.com/forums/biggrin.gif

How does the paint hold up to solvent?

My 50.63 had greeen plastic furniture (OD) and a green patina parkerizing. It was gorgeous! Now it's gone.

This does look VERY nice!

Now we need someone from the southwest to
do one in Desert Tan, possibly with primer red contrasts(camo).

NAZ are you still responding to ?'s ?

Steven asks: "How does the paint hold up to solvent?" Sorry it took so long for me to answer. It holds up very well to every solvent I tried: Accubore, Hoppes 9, etc. I have several guns that use a polyurethane finish, mostly wood stocked rifles, and I haven't had any trouble at all. http://www.fnfal.com/forums/cool.gif
