Hey guys,

I got a lead on a wide handguard, and a Burst lower housing, and I have a green POF A2 stock, and I'm thinking about duracoating them Tan. What does HK Pro think of Tan furniture? It'd look like this when finished, but with an A2(this is the only picture i could find. :( )



Thoughts?

EDIT:


EDIT: Finished!

I think it looks really cool and would set it apart from the rest. Go for it. Worst case, you can always redo it in standard black. I wish someone would start molding various furniture pieces in different colors.

Unless you can get a durable magazine in the same color I wouldn't do it.
I might like it if most of it was tan except for the barrel and magazine but
looking at pictures of tan SCARs I really like those with all of it black except
the stock buffer pad, barrel and sights.

As for looks, only the owners opinion matters...but since you asked, it looks different.

Interested in seeing pics of your completed project!

I really like it. Do it. It's your gun. Not anyone else's. And as was said, it's easy enough to go back to black. You've given me am idea.

I think it looks cool. Just another way to change it up. You see AR's all the time with FDE furniture on them. All brown would look cleaner but you need to keep your options open right? Go for it

As long as you put an orange 3-lug on it! :wink:

It would probably grow on me like the desert tan and urban grey USP's did.

I say no...only because it will look too much like that airsoft MP5! :wink:

In all honesty, I prefer the OD green or even that faux walnut look you have in the previous pics of the Hk91, but it's yours and who cares what I think. What's the worst that can happen? You don't like it and you have it refinished again.

Not feeling it.

The whole dark earth thing is all the rage in the AR world because of present wars.

Next it will be back to black or OD.

But it's your gun so our opinion is worth the same as everything else written on the internet.

It's your gun, not ours. Treat yourself.
We will all admire the gun porn and express the same opinions about it, whether it's proposed or done. The end result needs to be your opinion, not ours.

I'll just express mine to say that the dark earth color (3rd picture in your second post) is more to my liking. Then again, I would really like wood furniture, myself.

I couldn't stand desert tan and urban grey USP's for a long time. Now, I wish I had them.

Go for it. Do what you like. Heck, if I could pick up some cheap furniture, I would do some in pink for my daughter.

While you were napping, the Foliage Greens, Patriot Browns and Coyotes snuck in underneath your radar! :wink:

I think a different look can be a good thing. Being a carbon copy gets old sometimes. I've been thinking about going OD green on my MP5 SBR, but I really prefer the A3 stock setup and don't have the heart to Cerakote it. Of course, at that point you might as well do the entire gun and leave a few accents.
