Tired of Flat Dark Earth and O.D. Green? Basic Black too plain, Foliage Green not different enough? Sports South will soon be offering Magpul MOE furniture for AR-15s in all the latest patterns and colors. They have teamed up with Matrix Diversified Industry and TWN Water Transfer Printing to create hyrdo-dipped furniture sets with matching forends, foregrips, magazines, pistol grips, and stocks. Some of the patterns are quite functional, like the new A-TACS pattern, and should be a hit with the tactical crowd. Others are just for fun, to stand out from the crowd, like the carbon fiber pattern or the “Muddy Girl” hot pink and black camo. Of course there’s a green zombie pattern, “Reaper Z”, and even Kryptec’s “Typhon”, a black-on-grey dragon scale pattern most notable for being featured in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II video game (see image above).
Water transfer printing has gone from being a novelty to being a staple of advanced firearm customization. With the announcement of this product line, the technology goes one step closer to becoming absolutely mainstream. Soon any AR owner will be able to enjoy a level of firearm customization that was once very rare and expensive simply by swapping out their factory furniture with one of these matched sets.
Good photos of rifles sporting these patterns are difficult to come by at the moment, but we are hoping that Sport South’s booth at the SHOT Show will have some examples for us to look at!
