    Havent seen the answer..someone asked earlier if dyeing affects the hk logo and markings on the stock. Thinking about dyeing mine. Did you guys covers urs up or paint them back on?

    It shouldn't affect the logo much if at all. The logo is screened onto the stock and the paint they use doest accept the dye well. It may darken some but you should be OK.

    It is ideal to disassemble the rifle and put only the receiver (or even the barreled receiver) in the dye.

    So how durable is a dyed part? I have a PTR91 GI (which has green furniture) and just ordered a black buttstock. I want to get a black wide forend and found a green one (I haven't found a black one in my price range). I don't know if it's worth getting it and dying it black.

    My concern I guess would be nicks and scratches showing up in the original color. How big of an issue is that? I know I can re-dye, but I'm not sure how deep the dye penetrates, or for that matter how scratch resistant the HK polymer is.
