Lets see your best rifle paintjobs!

Have you ever tried to spray praint your rifle? I have experimented with it several times. Seems like every weekend im tinkering around in the garage and come up with a new idea for a paint scheme. Painting your rifle is something that I found takes a lot of patience but is also a great fun ... "it also takes several cans of Krylon and paint remover and about a thousand rags also" However, done right it can turn a cool rifle ... into a bad mamajamma. Tell me what ya think about this paint scheme on the ole hogue. I have several other paint schemes that will post later this weekend.

Post your rifle pics lets see how they turned out!

    Good stuff. I'm curious, about the hogue stock. How did you paint it what paint, etc? How's the paint holding up, etc? I have one I've thought of tinkering with but have heard it may not take to paint too well. Thanks in advance.

    It wont hold up well unless you apply a base coat of Bulldog promoter. It can be picked up at o reilleys for around 15 bucks. You apply it and let it dry for five min. Apply your paint, after the paint dries I apply a Bulldog protective clear coat. So far its held up great. I use krylon camo paint. Comes in flat brown, black, tan, and green.

    That's a great tip! Thanks, heath. I'm guessing that it hardens the flexible/rubbery feel of the Hogue?

    Thanks!

    Yeah it definately changes the hogues texture and feel. What kind of pattern are you thinking about going with?

    A shot from last winter. I was going to tape over the paint job, but, decided against it for fear it would harm the paint and I would have to redo it. It didnt turn out to be a problem.

    And the same gun in October.
