    Anyone done this with success? I found FNP 45 15 round mags in stock, but only had FDE floorplates. Not a huge deal, but I'd like to be able to have black. Rather than order some, wondering if anyone has done this cheaply.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks again man. I still haven't received my mags, but I did run 6 Sig new style floorplates in some dye today. These were originally red. I bought a few of these about a year ago where were 1/8th of the price of black ones.

    Let the water boil, put 3 cap full's in and stirred occasionally for 5 minutes. Even coat, flat black and look great.

    That's great. I'm glad it worked for you.

    I read a lot of stuff on gun forums and some of it is actually useful once in a while.
