    sprayed mine with black plasticote spray paint from Halfords, came up dull and year later few scratches etc otherwise durable, better than being silver and now matches my sauer 202 nicely, go for it. deerwarden.

    Know they do Matt Black Plastikote, really hard wearing.
    Best to apply a few thin coats, let it build up.
    (remember to allow ample time between coats to dry)

    Don't know if they do grey, probably.

    i sprayed mine with some black fireplace/stove paint after some advice and i wouldnt suggest doing it as the paint never seems to dry hard and is easily marked

    Contact JagerSA from this site, he will ceracote it for a reasonable fee.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    TJ 4.99 at Home Base Dura Coat painted mine with spray type got loads left and hey it is still in top nick and i give mine a hard time. (let james."JagerSA" pull some one elses pants down ha ha ) Like PaPa buck says 3 -4 coats of a thin pass is all you need to do a great job.

    How did you dry it? I was told to put it in the top oven of the AGA overnight. Haven't done mine yet but have the stove paint and the North Star

    That said, the two does this morning didn't seem to notice that it was silver, not black, so I might not bother

    Why not use the one T8 for the two rifles?? the 308 mod will do the job just fine on the 243,as the rifles are identical it should not be a problem with the delrin bush,just a thought.

    i know its greedy brought 243 some yrs ago,it came with t8 ,got a bit fed up with too much meat damage well shock damage really and mainly fallow running on in thick forestry , so i saved all of my tips from my guns as i am a keeper and splashed out on a 308 too ,it also came with a t8.and as alot ofmy rifle shooting is foxing my 243 s t8 sat mostly on my remy 22 .250 .i really get on with the 308 and have shot munty ,roe ,fallow ,and red with it with good effect and minimal damage , i hope i can get back on with the 243 and it has a t8 on it again gotta find a bullet that i like and go from there .i guess i am lazy and had some good tips at xmas so got the ace utra
