DuraCoat Job on a Ar-15

With the up coming elections and the possibility of Hil-Dog and Obama on the card i decided it was time to get my one of the infamous "black rifles"!!!

It is a Rock River Arms Ar-15 223 Coyote rig. It has a 20" chrome lined 1-9" twist bbl and skelton stock with overmolded Hogue pistol and forearm grips. It is wearing a Leupold Mk4 M3 3.5-10x40mm Mil Dot scope in PRW rings.

I am starting painting her tonite and i figured i would make this a running thread and show the stages. I am doing a 3 or 4 color snake skin pattern. tonite will be a base color of german grey.

here is the rifle naked




more to come tommorrow

thanks
steve

Oh nooooo............gun porn. What's this site coming to.;);)

Getting it now might be a good choice. I'm sure she'll be sharp when you get done. Keep the pictures coming.

gun porn is correct........

Pressures of the candidates or lack of will necessitate adopting an Magpul or what ever Bushmaster is calling it or a Sig into the family.

Will look forward to you paint scheme.

okay i got this done last nite, this is a base layer of German Gray. you can see a little bit of the snake skin pattern and where it is a solid color i will later use as the under layer of snake skin for the next color, there will be very little of the grey showing when i am done,

Looking good,

If you’re using Duracoat the coats are suppose to be put on within hours of each other. I did that same thing your doing in nightly step and the second coat wouldn't stick to the first. I talk to them about it and it has something to do chemically with the way it bonds to its self. The second and third coat got brittle and chipped off easily. But if it works it will be as tuff as nails.

VERY BEST OF LUCK TO YOU.

Huh, well this is the way i have done a couple of them and they all worked pretty good so far, i guess we will just have to see. that does make sense though. i havent really had any problem with any of it chipping off on any guns so far as long as where it was sprayed had at least some texture. i couldnt get it to stick to a mirror polished bolt.

thanks
steve
