    FS2000 Duracoat or Dye Options ??

    I'm considering having my FS2000 in OD Green dyed or Ducaracoated.

    Anyone done either to their's?

    Can you you post some pics?

    Consider FDE to match my SCARs and FNX .45 TACTICAL FDE.

    Thanks.

    You won't be able to dye green to tan, so that sort of narrows your options.

    Green will not dye FDE.

    When dying you have to go to a darker color.

    To go lighter you'll need to use a coating.

    The only issue you will run into when trying to match up finishes, is that they won't. Not exactly. Everyone's FDE is different. When you purchase a SCAR 17S FDE from FN, they can't even guarantee that the same shade of FDE will be on the same firearm!

    The advantage of DuraCoat is that every time you send something in to be coated in FDE, it will always match. However, to match up all of your firearms in the same FDE, you would have to send them all in which would not be cost effective unless you REALLY wanted to do it.

    I don't have a FS2000 picture but feel free to jump on our Facebook site to check out our other work (www.facebook.com/tzarmory). We are certified DuraCoat re-finishers and sponsoring members of this forum and would be happy to answer any other questions you may have.

    I would respectfully suggest that you might also loot at your Cerakote options. I have guns that are Durakoted and some that are Cerakoted. In my experience the Cerakote is thinner cures harder and wears better. I am having some Mismatched east block plastic furniture cerakoted OD green I will post up when I get it home. Here is the color I having a mixed set of AH74 plastic done in.

    Did some more looking around, Ceracoat appears to be the better choice.
