The lower I received in my Cuban kit was actually in great shape. It looked to be standard paint over park.

I used Rustoleum 7777 on my Portuguese m962 clone. It does a fantastic job of replicating FN's paint.

I use ACE semi gloss high temp paint...It has a barbecue picture on the can. It looks great and when you bake it and it cools, itís hard.

Almost all the ones I've seen had rusty flash hiders.
