Film Dipping rifles

I never see any rifle film dipped in a camo pattern such as realtree or mossy oak. Their are many companies that will do an entire rifle for under $200. I had a shotgun dipped a few years ago, and I love how it turned out. Looks excellent and durablity is great. I'm thinking about getting my current .375 build dipped, and was wondering if their was any reasons I shouldn't.

Seems like duracoat and Krylon seem to find their way on most rifles around here.

Re: Film Dipping rifles

I had two rifle stocks done in desert cammo and I have seen many rifles done in my area all with great results. I dont know what is involed in removing it if you ever changed your mind though. What pattern were you going to use?

Re: Film Dipping rifles

I really like the MAX4 patterns....I just didn't know if it affected any thing on the rifle negatively during the dipping process.

Re: Film Dipping rifles

My buddy used this company to dip the embelm on thier 55 chevy, photo 61 on their gallery. It looks good on the web page but it awsome in person. It makes the big carbon fiber shaker hood over the 572 stand out.

I have talked to them before they are nice people to talk to. I think they told me about 100.00

Here is the link

Those guys are into benchrest shooting if I am not mistaken. They also have a two week turn around which is unheard of. I have two stocks that I am shipping out next week to them, and an action following in a few weeks.
