Painted Weapons Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone could help me source a colour: the one on the upper of the MP5 (more pictures here).

I know that the paint on the lower and the magazine is RAL 8000, but the custom shop that made these MP5 (or SP89or whatever) names it as Duracoat Pewter SL, but from what I can see on Duracoat's catalogue, that paint is grey-silver, not tan-gold.

Either way, Duracoat is stupidly expensive to get into Spain, so I am trying to source a regular spray can in a similar colour.

So far, Rust-Oleum Universal Metallic Pure Gold seems to get the closest (see below, the pot on the left).

Any help in finding a closer colour (less shiny and more tan, I guess) would be greatly appreciated.

That is an MP5k. PDW never had SEF lower (I believe) and SP89 never had a paddle mag release.

Montana 94's Marrón Safari could be close.

If you click on the information on the colour, you'll get the CMYK, Hex and Pantone codes for it, so you can compare.

Could even be an SP5K, that I've seen around. I don't know that much about guns. I just mentioned SP89 since that is the most common civilian MP5K-style pistol in the US.

Thanks for the tip, but I have that colour (I have most 94 colours that might be usable for camo) as it's not close.

This is some type of metallised tan, or dulled gold paint. 

I'll keep looking for suitable candidates.
