I want to paint one of my stock Saiga handguards OD green and would like it to match Tapco's stock as closely as possible. Has anybody out there had any luck with this? Below is a few different paints I've found online. I'm trying to avoid having to buy them all to find the closest match on my own, so any advice would be appreciated :smoke:

The greatest hypnotist on the planet earth is an oblong box in the corner of the room. It is constantly telling us what to believe is real.
The greatest form of control is when you think you're free, when you're being fundamentally manipulated and dictated to. One form of dictatorship is being in a prison cell and you can see the bars and touch them. The other one is sitting in a prison cell but you can't see the bars, but you think you're free.
What the human race is suffering from is mass hypnosis. We are being hypnotized by people like this: Newsreaders, politicians, teachers and lecturers. We are in a country and in a world that is being run by unbelievably sick people. The chasm between what we're told is going on and what's really going on is absolutely enormous.

I'm curious about this too. I was thinking to test a couple of different paints on the leftover factory buttstocks I have.

I just tried calling Tapco and they closed at 4 :sadam:

I'll try again tomarrow and let yall know how it goes.

If calling Tapco doesn't do any good I think I'll order a bunch of different paints and do this as well :smoke:

I've had good luck with this one. Don't own any Tapco furniture but it's a pretty close match my other OD accessories.

My room is a grave yard of whisky bottles in a swamp of stale beer, cigar ashes, and dick jokes.

FWIW, if the color isn't an exact match, may help breakup what others are seeing.

Remember the four boxes: soap box, ballot box, cartridge box, and pine box.
