    Hey, no matter who you go with, can you do some before and after pics please? Kind of curious about how it will come out and go.

    I can do that, although mine may not be the best example of a before and after. It’s actually not too bad, minor scuffs mostly on the rails. I just want it to be perfect.

    After you install it, don't ever retract it or you'll be right back to "minor scuffs". An A3 collapsible stock that you will never collapse... Lol.

    I figure, that. Funny thing is that scuffs and scratches don’t bother as long as long as I’m the one causing them....weird I know.

    Wierd?... Nah.
    Some guys keep everything lookin' like a "Safe Queen" and some guys take a new gun and send it out for a "Battle Worn" finish. Guns are like women... Everyone's got their own idea about what the "perfect" one is.

    The only aesthetics problem with my A3 stocks are the rails. Looks horrible compared to the rest of the firearm.

    Has anybody nitrated just the rails? I'm sure it looks fine. How is the durability? Anybody know who performs this task and how much? Thank you!

    I have owned my MP5 clone for a number of years now. Early on, I purchased a POF retractable stock for it. The finish work(paint) on it was less than desirable, but it fit and functioned just fine. The rails looked awful after minimal use. At the time, I had a very good friend that owned a powder painting business. I took my stock apart and took him just the buttstock with the rails. I taped off everything except the outer surface of the rails. He powder painted them in satin black. They turned out great, and have held up 100%. I was really surprised how well they have held up. I do keep them lightly lubed to help them function smoothly. Just a thought.
