Shot some Duracoat on my AR

I just wanted to share a few pics of my AR. It is my dedicated varmint rifle and I shot some paint this weekend.

I was trying for earth tones and something that was a bit less conspicuous than the stainless barrel it came with. For the first year I hunted with it by wrapping the barrel in camo duct tape.

The lower receiver is still stripped so I've left the lenses taped up until the rifle is fully assembled.

Misfire, great job!
Did you use the Duracoat kit and follow the instructions?
I have to finish one I have. A Savage Striker for coyote hunting.

Thanks for the compliment Mike; I appreciate it. The paint was left over from my Sendero that I sprayed over the summer. Origionally I was going to make my own stencils but dropped that ideal pretty quick. I ended up ordering their "Urban MirageFlage" stencils and it worked out quite well.
