Paint?

Anyone on here paint a rifle before? I've done some reading on the subject and am seriously thinking about doing it.

Re: Paint?

270WIN,
I use LIC 43 made by a company called VALSPAR, its made in the US so I hope you can get it.

A very tough product, I have used it on my 338 LM, a 300 RUM 300WSM to name a few.
Great product.

Regards 300WSMMAD

I use Krylon exterior textured spray paint. Did an awesome job on mine and is very durable on the stock.

I did it to two different rifles. The first was a 22LR. I masked off the power numbers on the scope and the Turrets. I also masked off the parallax number on the Objective ring. Then I sprayed the whole rifle. I did mask off the bolt openings and put playdoh in the barrel. I masked off the safety as well. Sprayed with primer first and then started the camo process. On the other rifle I only sprayed the barrel and bottom metal.
