I am changing the color on my 16" LMT to either OD or Foliage using Magpul's kit.

I was wondering if someone had both colors and could post some pics where I could see them side by side or point me in the direction of a post where this has been done before.

I have the XTM rail panels in OD but I can't find anything Foliage in this area.

Thanks in advance. I tried the search but came up with nothin'.

im def. confused about magpul colors. Some places dont even acknowledge that magpul makes stuff in OD green including Magpul itself from my understanding.

G&R tactical has the foliage green XTM panels in stock, I have another set coming next week. There's a photo of all my ARs on page 100 of the AR picture thread, when I get home I'll try to post it here. 2 are in Magpul OD, 1 is in foliage. It's not the best pic, but maybe it will give you an idea.

The OD is much darker than the Foliage Green. I just went to OD from FDE and have everything but can't find a stubby VFG in OD anywhere. One guy on ebay said he had a TD VFG in OD but when I got it, it was foliage green. So if I were gonna do it again I would have left everything in FDE, or gone FG.

Just my $0.02 cents. I'm gonna ened up with a black VFG or sending the black one in for a duracoat but I'm not sure how well that will hold over time.

I like the foliage green. It seems more subdued to me. Right now I am building up a Spike's stripped lower utilizing dark earth. I think I may upgrade my Bushmaster though with some foliage green.

Foliage Green is the name of one of the ACU camo colors along with desert sand and urban grey. I don't know the magpul is meant to match it.

Here is yet another picture, someone else was nice enough to list the colors out as I have no photoshop skills. The other image should give you an idea of what the Magpul colors are like when laid next to ACU.
