Well some may recall that in another thread about dipping stuff I mentioned this scope that had gone a funny Gold colour. So on a visit into town I stopped by Halfords and brought some Satin Black spray. Masked the scope up and gave it a light rub with some fine emery cloth then sprayed it..
It looks quite good but .................................................
This is what it looked like before:-
It only changed couler where either the sun ? or air reached it easily. Due to comments that certain other scopes of a particular brand went this colour when left in the sun we shall say the sun was responsible. I do not know the make of the scope as it's not marked.
Now this is how it came out:-
I now have to re-mask it as not thinking clearly I masked too much and it shows up so I'll have to re-mask it and give it another going over. It also looks like this paint is not very tough but only time will tell how it holds up.
