My first attempt at Camo

Here is my Stevens 200 in 7-08. I stiffened the forearm by removing some plastic, running hollow stainless steel tubes inside and covering with JB Weld. I then sanded out the forearm to make sure the barrel was free floated. I then addded a 1 lb. lead weight that was shaped for the stock into the butt and filled with expanding foam. Weaver 20* base, Older Simmons 2.8-10X Phillipine MFG. scope (nice and clear) and warne rings. Paint job is rattle can and final coat with matte clear.

Great Job! what did you use for stencils? I previously use d 3m adhesive paper but it tore off some of the paint as I added layers.. You definately did a better job.
