M16a1 Color

5 posts in this topic

Hello.  I have a question for the forum.  I have an M16a1 with a triangular forend.  It is gray.  I would like to redo the gun in black.  The same black used by H&K.  My question is will it affect the guns value.  I suspect not.  There's nothing special about the gun that makes it collectible.  Just a nice Colt.  Anyway, I want to put a 416 upper on it and I want the colors to match. Any thoughts?  Thanks in advance!

It's your gun and do with it as you must, buuut, one day you are going to sell it and it being a genuine Colt, that may/will affect its value even if it's a beater. I have a Colt M-16A1 and even though it's not 100% and I like my guns 100% no way would I alter the color.

 

YMMV

It’s your gun. Have fun with it. I’ve ruined the value of many guns by spray painting them. But it makes me happy. 

Do whatever makes you happy.

As much as I would like a 5 position stock on mine, I won't change the receiver extension for the staked original.

why not change the color of the new stuff and keep her as she hit the floor?  BUT the bottom line is its YOURS!  but think b-4 you leap
