    Painted rifles

    I don't know if I,ve got too much time on my hands, but I was thinking about painting the plastic stock of my rifle in a camo pattern and I'm having an "is this a good or stupid idea" moment. Has anyone on here done it? if so how did it turn out? I've seen a few ideas from across the pond using krylon paint and bits of twigs and grass.

    To do a good job takes time to get it right; personally I would buy some proper rifle finishing products such as Du-coat and use the right temples for the pattern you want, PM Jager S A on here he has more experience of this than anybody in the UK in rifle finishing.

    I would second this opinion, as a crap job is pretty well permanent!

    Here's one I did earlier My wife was painting some garden gnomes and I noticed the paint was 'Duracoat' so to break the boredom and keep her company while she was working I did a spare stock on one of my rifles and so far it has drawn remarks like "Oh my god whose is that" "what the H*** happened to that" and "my god I've heard of a technicolour yawn but never seen one until now"


    But I don't care, because it covers up some Devcon filled holes where I dug out channels to put a Detachable magazine in and it didn't go right and looked horrible.
    At least I can now be sure nobody else has one like this -nor wants one

    Hello stew,

    I would try hydrographics.co.uk or .com as they are specialists in customising rifle stocks. May be more expensive than DIY but you may end up with the perfect look.

    you may not want this particular pattern, but these video's cover the basics pretty well.
