Everyone,

Since this post has gotten so long, I figured I would update just this first few posts with all the pictures so they are more simple to view. New comers can go through the many pages and see the growing pains with the ACR, and maybe get some information on how to remedy theirs. My thread here covers just about every mod or aftermarket part for the ACR.

Can't post more than one video in a post so you will have to go my YouTube playlist to see them;

The forum will not let me add anymore pictures to the thread. Will go down to my next post to edit and add more.

I love the paint my friend. Looks very simple and effective. I envy the work to the barrel as well. Is that paint on the gas block? I imagine it'll hold up fine.

Just got my barrel back today. Had it cut down since the kits are not out for shorter barrels yet. Yes I know, my EMag is not painted yet.

You can't tell. The way that you did your paint job on the msg well, the unpainted black mag blends right in. Nice.

Original Post;
Had the work done at a local gun shop, JoJo's Gun Works. They are really good. Go to them for everything. As for the paint, I just did a random spray pattern while it was on the ground with a camouflage paint kit from Cabela's. I do have paint on the gas block. I have painted my AR's like this as well. When the paint gets real hot, it kind of turns brown then flakes off. Not a big deal to me.... just spray it again, or clean it up and change up the pattern. :) Coming from the Marine Corps, having gear that works well and is tactical is what matters to me. Some guys wonder why I would just spray a gun I have over $3000 into. I like how it looks! Haha. Thanks everyone.

Here is a new picture. Was considering changing to the angled forward grip, but don't know how it would mount to the basic hand guard without buying a rail as well. Waiting for the flash light switch to come in from timebandit. And it needs to paint after all is on since the green on the new parts matches. Took them off my AR15 and that had a slightly lighter green. Sorry for the low quality cell phone picture.

That's it im running mine through the band saw. I've got the same fore grip. I may move it back. I have 2to pressure switches on it and since I have the full length barrel it feels easier to balance.. more pics!

Looks nice. The AFG comes with the rail section that's required. No worries.
