Re: DIY Camo Dip Kit

I got the stock dipped on my rem XCR LRT for $80.00, by a guy near by (SC). I think he charges about $175 for the entire gun. The finish seems very, very durable. In fact I asked him how tough it was and he said that in order to remove a "dipped" finish, he has to bead-blast it for a long time. It is such a pain to remove, he will just put a new layer on top of the old, if someone wants a different pattern. I would venture to say that a dipped-finish will hold up better than a painted finish, second only to the molded in colors of McMillan. I would highly recommend it.

I think you can do 2-3 full guns with one of the dip kits...

Re: DIY Camo Dip Kit

Anybody have any idea how this process would work on a muzzle brake, would it hang in there or blow off.

I'm thinking that the ports would suffer a bit, most probably enhanced by cleaning.

Otherwise I think it would do just fine.

Re: DIY Camo Dip Kit

I might have to give it a try, so far everything I paint comes out to tacie cool not the smooth sexy or hunting cool which I would prefer. Muzzle brakes are stainless so if it blast away a little in the baffles no biggie just worried about it to continue to peal from there. Just want the hunting look not the tactical!!

Has anyone used this yet?
If so, how is it holding up?
