    I keep seeing FMJ on some oldskool Valve & oldskool pairs. What is FMJ & how can you tell if there is no box?

    If it flakes off pieces of metal into your eyeballs while you wear them, its FMJ:grin:

    FMJ is a vapor deposition metal coating. Certain frame colors are FMJ - silvers mostly, some others like red and copper. There's a certain look to the FMJ you can learn to see.
