Finally a nice "tactical" gun!
Most "tacticool" guns look like crap, but I like this one!

I've done my Walther PPS to match and it has held up very well. Everything that's OD green (other than the stock and sling) I did paint with the duracoat shake n' spray kit, as well as my Walther frame. It turned our quite nicely.

Thanks for all the comments guys. Other than the strip of numbers around the zoom knob on the scope and the butt stock pad, there is nothing left unpainted and unwebbed on the entire rifle. My next plan for it is to get a can and paint to match. And even though I don't even have the can yet, I'm already debating whether it should be painted the same color as the barrel, or if it should match the stock. I like contrasting accent pieces but I'm afraid doing a suppressor in OD green might get to be a bit much. What are your thoughts?

I would say match the suppressor and barrel, i think it would be weird with a big hunk of green stickin' out the end of your tan barrel.

I'm actually doing my SPS Tactical in a similar way, save for the colors. Nice rifle

Agreed. I mean I don't think it would look THAT bad with a green suppressor, but tan would probably come together a little better.

I'm impressed. Didn't really know you could paint guns. Is the barrel rattle can paint?

The only thing that wasn't painted was the stock. If its tan or OD green then it was duracoated.
