    FDE spray paint? Alumahyde?

    I successfully sprayed some KAC rail panels with Brownell's Alumahyde II OD Green and they matched my TD and Vltor OD Green furniture rather well.

    I now am installing FDE furniture on another AR build, and I would like to spray some more KAC panels with a matching FDE color. On the Brownell's website, their "Coyote" looks close to FDE. Does anybody have any experience with that color?

    Any other sources for FDE spray paint? Krylon? Thanks for any help.

    DuraCoat has a couple of FDEs listed. Vltor and Magpul are both included.

    I would like to try and come close to the Magpul stock and rear grip that I have when I paint a hand guard myself but I don't have the paint in hand yet.

    Duracoat definitely has the right color. Unfortunately, I am looking for something I can rattle and spray and spend like $10 or less.

    I like Krylon myself. $1 a can and when people piss and moan that you "ruined" your weapon that costs "x" amount of dollars and get a look on their face like someone farted in their mouth when you tell them you did your paint job with krylon, the entertainment value is priceless.

    Aervoe paint
    Field drab 30118 is the match for FDE.

    They have a bunch of other colors as well.
    I like the field drab and the sand colors.

    As to Brownell's Alumahyde II, I find their Earth Brown to be a closer match to FDE than the Coyote - pretty darn close, in fact, to my MagPul and VLTOR stuff.
