Lovely! The top one is quite close to mine. Can I ask, does the colour difference between the can and the barrel/front sight irritate you?

yup but to be honest the latest RS ones I have seen are all completely black, a bit like the second picture so i'd need to spray the PTW to make it look more authentic

Well obviously, but they didnt originate from UKSF,so wondered whether they actually used it or not. Maybe i shouldnt ask questions in elitist threads.

No harm in asking.

 

UKSF have a long and glorious tradition of applting paint to anything that is unpainted - including rifles.

 

The snakeskin effect (sprating the rifle with a scrim scarf between the paint and rifle) seems to be the current vogue based on pics of both UKSF and USSF coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan over recent years.

 

Works on kit too (not that I would ever get carried away with a scrim and paint :) ).

No need for that tone.

 

Theres nothing elitist about this thread or its predessors. You asked a question, got an answer (I'm sorry if that reply offender you, would help if the smily I thought I added was there, fixed ;) ).

Things in text get interpreted in different ways over the net, to me that seemed an arrogant and sarcastic reply, sorry if i did take it the wrong way, the reason i asked was because it seemed a bit "cod like" to me to be UKSF used. But theboyspud gave the kind of answer i was looking for lol

Ah, so the greyish finish is less realistic? I always thought it was the other way around, for some reason. I suppose it depends on which weapons you're looking at aswell.

All the latest American M4's are coming out the factory in the black colour as well. The earlier M4/m16's used to be a grey/blue colour which is similar to the PTW colour but nowadays all the M4's or L119A1's I see are black.
