KFL+ v2 compatibility
Is this one compatible with the KFL+ v2 (SKU 1700500) ?

Thanks.

@viking65 , FT should stock some brushed finished spares but it's not too hard to get a brushed finish from a polished one. The matte finish looks good on the Russian and matte finish KFL+ but neither match the V2's finish.
Live, love and be happy.

Yes it is but the brushed replacement looks better with the finish of the V2.
If you don't mind sanding and buffing a little then get the polished, it will be easier to get it to match the brushed finish of the V2.

I don't see brushed one just a matte finish SKU 1562800 or maybe I am missing it somewhere?

Anyways it is easy enough to brush finish them as you mentioned. ;)

Thank you both for your prompt reply.

No problem.

But it's way easier than you think.

Just a few turns with some 400 to 600 sandpaper or a scotchbrite pad and Wallah! =D

Lotsa of videos on YouTube on how to do it.

If you can't find one just ask and I will Link you. ;)
