    I just paid a local guy who does Duracoat to paint a rifle. He helped me select two colors in which he said were a great combo. All I had was a small paint chip to choose from. I picked up the rifle last night and was in hopes that it was just the lighting ... he did a great job ... but the paint color is terrible. I need some help if anyone else has any photos and color combos. I was hoping for more desert colors ... this don't cut it.

    If there are any photoshop gurus who could color this for me ... that would be great.

    I like the tan or brownish color on the action and barrel.

    I would do a camo pattern on the stock.

    There are a couple of Duracoat websites that have examples of the stock in their different colors including camo and such.

    Google has always been the best invention ever for me when researching stuff.

    Search for images and you might get some ideas as well.

    This is more of what I had in mind.

    Call me crazy but I like it. If you did anything I'd add some of the barrel color as a pattern of some sort on the stock.
