    Photos dont do it justice, this paint is wicked looking in direct sun.

    This aint no hunting rig, but it has been built with the ability to swap into
    my Manners T2 if I want.

    First 5 shots went like this on a crappy day, so bad I had to set up the rest in the back of my SUV and shot from front seat, try it! it aint easy!!! with ZERO load development 140 gr Berger,the extreme left is the VERY FIRST shot after bore sight/fowler,adjusted, then right next to that is the second shot, I never moved scope adjustment, then fired last three which measured +/- .5

    Not a bad result I thought, will find out what it can really do this Sunday

    Thanks guys, Hopefully will be at the NZ F Class Nationals in March 2010 at Whatawata if any of you kiwis come to that dont be shy in saying gidday.

    NZP, well thats a complement, thanks but I only do really for myself as a hobby, not on a professional level. maybe some time in the future I will look at doing other peoples rifles but at the moment I dont want to be in the position of responsibilty for other peoples gear until Im 100% confident in my abilitys and the coatings Im using.
    To be honest IF that was your stock I would respray it, there are areas that I werent 100% happy with but because its mine I put it down to experience.

    Kevin, The paints I used were a bits and pieces really, the primer was a generic laquer primer, the Black I belive was Dulux automotive Base coat laquer. The silver was definatly Debeer Chunky metallic Silver basecoat laquer.
    Candy orange was Debeer with added yellow pearls. Clear coat I will have to get back to you on but it TOUGH!!

    Thanks again guys.
