    These don't exactly look like they've been done with a can of paint...
  2. Obviously not. The forward hand guards with rail mounts now come in tan

    And the main body too? Is that now standard?
  4. If you read the latest issue of Kit! Magazine you would find comprehensive instructions for the spray-painting of your L85A3 in Coyote Brown paint...

  5. L85A3? Whats the A3 part?
  6. A3? I thought you liked history rather than stuff from the future?

  8. Still A2.

    H&K manufacture a newer body that has A3 on it but that was to do with manufacturing.

  9. Wasn't the spray bought in for cam reasons? Think they're defeating the purpose really. Instead of a big chunk of black, theyve now got a big chunk of tan. So....pointless spraying it in the first place?
