I've always liked the all black look. The FDE looks almost like a light green to me, not so tan. I wonder if it would work in woodland to break up the outline or if it would stick out. Same with Urban. I feel like in urban if you were dressed in all black defending your neighborhood, it would stand out to have FDE vs blend in if it was all black furniture.

What say ye?

I use a combination of FDE and Magpul Foliage Green. Blends in well in woodland, desert and urban environments. Note how black attracts attention (BTW that a machinist's vice and a mag well block supporting the rifle).

Black pistol with FDE for comparison. Black still screams "over here!" but at least the contrast between the two helps to break up the shape. Surprisingly black doesn't even have an advantage in the darkness once you learn to look for it.

Hmmmmmm...that's very nice, the first one does blend in very well. Even though the 2nd one blends in less than the first one, it appears the FDE still breaks up its outline quite a bit, wouldn't you say?

So keep the FDE brace? The upper is MLOK black so unless I paint it...

Maybe I can wrap it with some of that cammo sticky medical cloth stuff they sell...

It's like Wimmins and Shoes!

I get all Matt Best excited when I hear troubles coming and i'm standing there in front of the open safe contemplating which of several would best fit the situation, and then which side arm, and all the other stuff, like vest, NOD, mag pouch count, armor, pads, and, and, and, and...................
infinitantum!



It's a sickness!

I refuse to own an EBR (Evil Black Rifle) so all of mine get a custom camo job courtesy of Mr. Krylon and my artistic abilities.

To be fair, the .450 Bushmaster AR is used in the woods as a camp carbine and wolf/bear defense rifle...

The AR10 is also designated as a SHTF run to the hills rifle as well.

And the Bushmaster V-Match AR-15 was originally purchased as a coyote gun and eventually morphed into a battle rifle for some reason. But the Extar EP-9 was purchased as a home defense weapon and I sprayed it just because I thought it would look cool...
