There are different coatings that you can have done (Baked on finish) or you can buy spray
on finishes from Brownells (Most are epoxy based and require around 5 days to cure properly
but they are very tough),
Last but not least you can do your own camo job on the rifle (Which a lot of people do) and
camo it to match your taste or the terrain. Most people use krylon for this.
I like to first coat the rifle (After a good solvent cleaning) with a dark green for the base cote
Then I use a light gray and just lightly dust the rifle in random spots to break up the solid
green. Then using different plants from the area to be hunted (Pine needles,oak leaf branches,
Cat tail reads, ETC) lay them on the rifle and dust the area using flat black outlining the foliage.
( this makes the leaf pattern show up green where the base paint is coverd by the foliage).
This method is easy and the end results are pleasing with a little practice you can make it like you want.
Also if you camo your rifle cover the lenses and bolt to prevent over spray and do the whole
rifle, scope, stock and all.
There are some examples of different cammo on this site if you do a search.
