Hey all,

There's someone in my area selling their x95 at a great price, but I'm not super keen on the color. Is it possible to swap out the shell only? Could I even get just new furniture for one?

Bonus question: if this is not feasible, what kind of paint/treatment would work well to recolor it? Is ceracote (sp?) The only option?

For those wondering it is an FDE x95, and I would rather it be OD green or black, but I'm considering attempting a camo treatment if possible.

Thanks!

That's not possible. The shell itself is serialized.
But you cerakote it,  spray paint etc etc.
But I would go with a good cerakote.
How much is this person selling it for?

The shell is not serialized. There is an actual aluminum receiver inside the polymer shell that has the serial number. Getting your hands on the shell is a different story.  I saw a SAR stock set in multicam on gunbroker not too long ago.  That however is exceedingly rare.

That is incorrect.  The shell is not serialized, the aluminum receiver is.  There is a hole in the shell for the serialized number on the receiver to be shown.

OP, yes you could, but good luck finding that.  Maybe someone here will trade with you.   You are much better off just painting or cera/duracoating it.  It will be easier, and probably cheaper.

I saw an X95 on Vegas Armslist for $1250 in FDE. Is this the same gun you are talking about? I thought it was a great deal.

This is an excellent write up on how to change the color inexpensively: https://bullpupforum.com/index.php?topic=12447.0
