Colored stuff!
« on: April 01, 2021, 05:11:38 AM »
Smoke et. al. started all of this colored slug business, with a variety of rainbow hues. Now this: https://hardairmagazine.com/reviews/customize-your-air-rifle-with-these-new-stylish-scope-mounts/

I just wonder when UTG will start offering special colors for their rifle scopes? I say this with tongue-in-cheek, because you can buy colored trigger shoes, colored handles for your FX lever guns, and all manner of laminated stock material. What's next? Colored pellets?

I have a Hill EC-3000 compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your tank as a courtesy (4,250 PSI limit).

Come on Alan, I've been "coloring" my Lead offerings for a few years now. Sold all my messy lube toys and got a Toaster Oven for $5.00 @ Goodwill and have been a happy toaster since.  I'm fond of the metallic colors though.  8)

UTG has been offering those for a while.  They are used to make black pew pews less black and more friendly.

At least I was trying to be PC! As in Perfect Color (not politics!). On that vain, I like pleasant pink, but I know it as T---- P---! It sort of grabs you!

Well, at present I've locked on to a Silver and a Copper.  Silver covers really well but the Copper requires 2 coats.
