    Just got my .308 back from having it refinished with Cerakote. Paul at Cutting Edge Arms in Okc did the work for me. Heres a before and a couple pics after he was done. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

    I only saw the pic of the rifle in green at first and I was like um...... well:cool: then I scrolled down and WOW it looks great!

    I have to ask you a personal question as well are you short?

    Royinidaho - I went to a combat shotgun school along time ago and they preached having the carry strap attached on the pistol grip and I just like it there. I have installed studs in the grip on all my rifles now. Just a personal preference.

    ICANHITHIMMAN - Why are you curious if I'm short??

    Zupatum - The colors are just orange and black Cerakote. They did a base coat of matte black, then added the different black and orange. It actually gave the stock alittle texture.
