    Which Duracoat color matches "M16 grey"?

    I'm putting together an M16 lookalike, and I need some advice on the finish. I don't want to spend too much on it, so a DIY rattle can job will do just fine. The color I'm after is the medium grey you see on early M16s, and preferably with that slightly green tinge they get from age. Has anybody tried this with Duracoat, and in that case: Which color did you use?

    I can’t answer for Duracoat, but instead highly recommend Norrells Moly Resin in Grayish Flat Black as an easy to use product that replicates the retro M16’s color. Here is my GAU-5/A/A clone, formerly with an in the white 80% lower and a black Troy upper both colored with that moly resin.
