    That's not the only stock option they sell. There's a version in the "customizer" that offers left and right thumbhole options as well, which is definitely something new, and you can get a walnut stock instead of laminated wood. Some people dig that. vOv

    As for the nightmare above showing the wearing-off of the finish...looking forward to the TFB "update" video when James has to eventually take the Velcro off his ODG 1301, if only to replace it. Glad I went with basic bitch black. >.>

    I don’t know much about Cerakote, this was my first gun that had a “coating” of whatever it is. I’ve noticed it comes off with the slightest of abrasion, and never been happy about that. I’ve also never been happy with the color of Beretta’s version of FDE, it has too much green in it if you ask me. Looks nothing like Magpul’s version if we assume their’s is the industry standard, not that it is. Moving forward, I may redo the finish to fix the color and abrasion resistance with something from Vang Comp or such. Would NP3 be an option for corrosion resistance too? 🤔

    As to the Velcro job, it was probably a blessing to put the wrong side strip on first. I can’t imagine it staying on with how easily it came off after setting about 20-25 minutes. Food for thought to owners of other “Cerakote” covered 1301’s out there with a Velcro side saddle on them. Meanwhile, it came out looking OK to me, and functions well with the Vang Comp cards:

    these are painted with Aervoe spray paints that I got from Brownells. All I did was degrease with alcohol. I find it more durable than Rustoleum or other Wally World spray paints.

    I bet you can get close with some testing (if you want to go the budget route)

    I don't think you could mess it up.





    Here is my SBR freshly painted in 2014. I used it extensively for training classes and duty use. I parked it roughly 2018 as I was assigned one at work.



    Here is a 2020 pic of the same SBR. The paint has held up very well to heavy use, especially on the alum surfaces.

    My GG&G Mossberg adapter and SGA showed up. The instructions state the buffer is not used. Is that a change from earlier production? I remember several of you mentioning the GG&G retained the buffer.

    And… I’m a moron. I thought the silver lever was the buffer, but it became obvious when I installed the stock that GG&G incorporates a replacement buffer in their design.

    That's why I got away from using anything but black for AR components. Everyone's FDE, OD, foliage/forest/etc., grey, etc. is slightly (to a lot) different. Everyone's black is close enough to matching. So you can have BCM, Magpul, whatever components and furniture you want and it will all be black.

    Of course, if you're going to do a full rattle can job as seen above, just get whatever's cheapest.
