I had a rifle rebarreled and fluted. Did a cerakote finish in burnt bronze with black accents. The fluting, trigger and bolt were all black with the rest being the burnt bronze. I like it.Started a new hunting rifle build project and asking for opinions of what colors or finish on barreled action.
I grabbed up a beautiful gloss blue "C" SN Rem 700 action that I'm having a stainless barrel spun up on.
I already have a couple of long range bench type rifles with blued receiver with stainless barrels.
I already have a couple hunting rifles that were coated all graphite black or other color.
I really like the all graphite black color but thinking of something different.
I will have a shallow depth, spiral, slow twist flute pattern done on the #4 barrel for looks alone.
I just want to make it look nice and not sure which direction to go on the finish.
Should I ruin the beautiful blued receiver look with coating or leave it gloss and only do the barrel or what?
Tell me what you think would look really nice.
Pics of your favorite won't hurt either!
