Re: new paint and diy cheek rest let me know what you think

Here's your grade on the project:

Innovation: 3.98
Color Choice: 3.97
Digital Size: 4.0
Craftsmanship: 4.0
Color Dispersion: 3.78
Personal Touch (Skull) 3.975
Extra Poionts: 4.0 (Cammo Recoil Pad)

Cheek Piece: 4.1

The project looks like a personal adaptation of standard digital pattern which in my opinion is much more effective that what the military and other do.

For the Coupe di Grass what'cha gonna do to the metal including the scope.

If you do the metal to the same level of effectiveness you're gonna have to tether it to you so you can find it if you ever have to go behind the "bush".

Very nice. One of the better ones I've seen......

Re: new paint and diy cheek rest let me know what you think

thanks both of you. and it is just krylon. nothing fancy. about the metal. i havent decided. due to the fact that i plan on rebarreling it at some point with something a little bit heavyier that just a light sporter barrel on there right now. and maybe down the road a better stock to thats just the factory stock its ok but at the same time its not the gratest.
