Don't forget the charging lever that looked like an upside down trigger in the handle.
I think that the idea of making your AR look like it was a hundred-year-old veteran piece is based on the Mad Max post apocalyptic scenario, rather than the present-day....
IOW, what a well-used piece would look like after sixty to a hundred years of heavy use.
I have a better idea how bout you paint your gun how you like it then go use it and guess what your gun will look used after awhile lol
I know a guy down the street. He will help you get the patina that your looking for. supplies the AR, food, shelter the whole nine yards. In fact I think he will even pay you to do it.
Just google your local Army recruiter.
I don't (and won't) own any but I think some of them look kinda cool. If you like the looks, go for it. It doesn't offend me at all.
Guys who own them are probably aware that anyone who sees them and believes them authentic is either a little kid or someone who's never owned firearms.
I think most who do it do it because they like the looks, not because they think everyone will think they're hardened warriors.
I suppose I could be wrong.
I personally don't like those "battle worn" finishes, but I never judge on that. It's just personal preference. I would also not judge on people wearing the Abercrombie stuff. You gotta be in good shape to wear those to look good.
Legit battleworn M16s, M4, Colts, AR types. Of course, none of them look as distressed as the subject "fake patina" guns
I dont know about "battle worn", but I like my stuff to earn the "been there, done that" look. Takes time and its worth it!
Gene pool cleaned!
What someone does to their firearm is their choice. I could care less if its painted, stippled or battle worn.
Where the analogy makes sense is, people BUYING new "battle worn" looking firearms.. That to me is idiotic.
But personalization? No big deal. Here in the PNW it just means their firearms will gather rust much faster in worn steel areas. Id only (hypothetically) do the battle worn thing if I was in a dry climate.
BEWARE THE MIATA MAN!!!
Way to forward assist, sister!
You wouldn't want to part with that saddle ring, rolling block carbine, would you?
That's a tough question, 3M! If you're driving a Miata, then yeah, you need the Birkenstocks. The boots? Too butch for anything but the mall!
Oh yeah! Looked like that first perp was deceased before he hit the ground! That's good, I'd hate for the poor fellow to suffer needlessly!
RE: HOW MANY ON YOUR IGNORE LIST?
Yep, Werd is one of those "souvenir" no longer with us folks!
Here's something to consider.... don't only PAINT them to make them look old.
How about a gun BUILT to look old

A&F used to have a fantastic gun room on the second floor of their Chicago store that was very impressive back in the 60's. Every thing from big game guns for Africa to Peacemakers used in famous movies.
