    Hi everyone. I am planning to have my silver Staright Jackets done in cerakote and looking for opinions for colors. I am going to leave the ice iridium lenses and blue icons the way they are and might swap the blue ear socks to black so they match the black nose piece. I've never been a fan of the silver and I am thinking maybe a darker grey will go well with the blue but I am open to any suggestions. Looking at the cerakote color chart, sniper grey, tungsten, and combat grey are 3 colors that jump out at me but there are other shades of grey and many colors to choose from. Here's what my SJs look like now:

    I had a pair of Antix done in Tactical Grey, which is just a hair lighter than Sniper Grey. Went with Revant blue lenses and it looked awesome. I'd go with Sniper, Tactical, or Combat. I think Tungsten might have just a bit of bronze in it that I'm not sure would work the best IMO. This is the best picture I have of mine:

    Good to know. #1 has been sniper grey from the start but your tactical grey looks great too. Who did them for you? Happy with the results? Thanks for the reply and picture.

    CCL did them. I've had a few different products done there and always turn out great.

    I believe there are about "50 shades of grey" :rofl:



    I couldn't resist.... :) Sorry.


    I like the Antix in the photo above....without seeing the other posts I was going to say a grey close to X-Metal and I think that Antix looks nice. Tactical Grey gets my vote.

    I know a bunch of young chicks who are turned on by it too....though I have yet to see the movie....I don't have time to read anymore so it has to be a movie.
