Firearms in FDE
« on: November 17, 2017, 09:48:55 AM »
Black rifles are cool but some color makes a gun blend in or sometimes the complete opposite, stand out. Show me your FDE (albino) firearms!



716 on an ACS instead of a Bravo.....and a Grip Pod.

I never got into FDE until I got my BREN, just because I am in the desert, so it made more sense for a lighter color rifle to reduce heat retention and blend in better. Now I think I'm hooked - only problem is keeping the color clean, because like white shag carpet, it shows every possible stain. Yes, I have had white shag carpet...

I guess my only one is the P07 with RMR.  It wasn't bought with an FDE slide, Primary Machine cerakoted it that color for me after the slide machining work for the RMR was done.

Oh, the only picture I have is the "sweaty" picture.  What it looks like coming out of the holster after a few hours under my shirt in 95F plus temps and the humid VA summer days.



Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.  So, if you see me walking the dogs with my SIG 556R, its okay.

No FDE here.  I can't buy Sugru or JB-Weld in FDE color.   :) :)

A couple of my Rugers are in FDE and FDE(ish). The AR-556 it has morphed more black since I find actual FDE colored furniture much lighter than the "Barrett Brown" cerakote on the rifle.
