Hi guys,

Is anyone aware of a commercially sold spray paint brand & colour that matches KWC's gun metal grey finish, like the one used on the KWC / Tanfoglio 1911? Looking to do some touch-ups.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Best,

Keith.

I would suggest you take a gun part (the magazine maybe?) to a good hobby shop or browse around the internet and try to match your color with scale model paint.
In scale modelling Gun metal is a pretty common paint color for tank tracks, guns (duh), engines, etc. You can look for Testor, Humbrol, Tamiya, Pactra, Model Master brands to name few. Each manufacturer will have a slightly different gun metal shade. You might have luck and find a close match.

If it is scratches from the blowback action on the tip and ejection port that you want to touch up, another option is to strip all the paint off those areas and polish them. Looks pretty nice like that.

One of the wheel paints available at Canadian Tire is an almost exact match.
