TM9 Paint - SHADE #4 wanted!

Post by GSD*GPW* » Wed Feb 22, 2017 4:25 pm

Greetings G-men,
This is a long shot, I know....Does anyone have a partial gallon or full gallon of the TM9 - SHADE #4 they would like to sell?
This shade is no longer produced and need it to match my current paint job now that spring is near!
I'd like to locate a gallon, but several partials will work too!
Drop me a line if can help out..
ThankS!

Back - to - the - top!
Ordered some TM9 OD#8 and too green for a match to my current paint job- although the TM9 Ordinance paint is very nice to work with, covers well and dries to touch quickly - Wish I had known about this and used it back in the early days!!
Anyone have any OD #4 - need some badly!
Thanks,
Greg

I thought Midwest Military had taken over the rights to this line. Are they not making your shade or carrying it? I got a few gallons of shade 8 from Mat Fox with Quartermaster Jeep Parts in Rising Fawn, GA and I thought he carried the entire line as well.

Indeed! I have been communicating with John at Midwest, very good to work with...but they don't carry the OD shade #4 anymore!
And the original formula is lost to us.
It sounds like they could reverse engineer the formula - IF I had sampling of the original paint.
Oh, then there is the cost to consider as well...
I'm willing to shell out a good sum - to the kind soul that has a gallon or partial gallon of the original OD shade #4!!
Hey, I know Mat at Quartermaster - I'll contact him too!
