I’m building a 90mag right now. I cannot decide what colors to go with. I usually stick to all black cause I always think it looks so clean when its done. Maybe a little trim band by the specs but that’s about it. I really would like to give this one a classic jig stick look. I don’t like super intricate stuff personally. More of a simple man myself. So, I’m looking for some classic color way ideas. What are some for your guys favorite? Grips are done...

Colors to me are a personal choice... choose what you like or just the easy way out black on black.. I will say black on black takes a little time as it's hard to see over wraps...

Good Luck have fun...

Black and any metallic is simple yet has a little flair. Black and gold or silver for a classic look, black with a metallic primary color also looks good.

    Some of the stuff I did repetitiously way back in the day was light blue, dark blue, and black. The other was red, yellow, and black. Throw in some silver or gold inlays / trim.
