Cerakote color questions
« on: May 15, 2020, 04:38:09 PM »
So I'm going to Cerakote a receiver set and rail on an other build. I'm going with OD furniture, and want to go with a slightly contrasting color. one option is possibly Coyote Tan or similar. Also considering Noveseke Bazooka Green, but not sure how the colors will play together. It also looks great in some pics, and almost cartoonish neon in others. Anybody use this color in person?

I'm not a huge fan of H-189 AKA Noveske Green. It's a bastardization of 2 colors and it's a massive pain in the ass to match even to itself, just because of how the batches are done.

I'd go with Multicam Brown or a Benelli Sand.

Trying to stay away from sand colors, trying for something similar to this- This is Bazzoka green with OD furniture:
Maybe FS Field Drab would work.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I personally wouldn't want two shades of green on any of my guns unless it was part of a camo pattern which i'm not a big fan of to begin with. What about a two color scheme, like green for the furniture and black for the receiver, rail, and small parts?

Maybe I am just odd. But I like my guns plain old fashioned black. However I will defend to the end your right to paint your gun any color you want. Thank God we live in America where we celebrate freedom of choice!

I did Multicam Brown with FDE furniture for my personal SBR - I think it came out great...

Black is boring. Looking to do something different with this one. Variety is the spice of life.
