So the time has come to start picking colors to do the ak in. I know alot of you are purists but this is not what this poll or thread is about. I want two colors that are going to break up the pattern of the rifle.

I will be going with Magpul od green furniture.

The three choices I have chosen are as follows. The rifle will be parkerized and then cerakoted.

Patriot brown with magpul od green furniture

Slide is patriot brown, frame is magpul od green

Choclate brown with magpul od green furniture
The slide on this is chocolate brown


Magpul Flat Dark Earth and Magpul OD Green furniture.

Right now I am leaning toward patriot brown with the magpul od green furniture.

However, the flat dark earth with od green is a runner up. Someone, in the know that does camo jobs on weapons professionally recommended the magpul fde and magpul od green combo and said it will work well for almost any environment.

I am still looking for a replacement for my 03 after all these years after selling it.
The green Parkerizing on the receiver & bolt was fascinating to a youngster.
On the pistol it looks good on a black rifle not so much.

More brain storming

What colors would go best over top of magpul od green for camo? I am wanting a three color camo. I'm thinking maybe coyote tan, and patriot brown, or magpul fde and muddy river brown? Or Smith's brown with desert sand?

Coyote Tan and patriot brown
Cerakote Coatings: H-235Q Coyote Tan

Patriot brown (for dark brown mixed with light brown)
Cerakote Coatings: C-226Q Patriot Brown

Thailand marine camo stencil

Magpul FDE and muddy river brown over od green

Magpul FDE Cerakote Coatings: H-267Q MagPul(TM) Flat Dark Earth

Muddy River Brown Cerakote Coatings: H-254Q Muddy River


Smith's Brown for the dark brown and desert sand for the light brown

Smith's Brown Cerakote Coatings: H-215Q Smith's Brown

Desert Sand

Which colors aforementioned would look best on a totally magpul od green fire arm (furniture and all) with the following stencil.

Or heck would this stencil be better with those colors?
