Default A finish for my Mosin Nagant sporter

As I have said in previous posts, I purchased this gun at a show already "Bubbafied". I thought it would make a fun project to keep me out of trouble. After making the ATI stock fit properly (Bubba butchered it pretty bad and I should have just bit the bullet and replaced it) I made bedding pillars bedded the stock and Magazine. The barrel was counterbored 2 1/2", which is the most I have seen on a M-N, and needed another inch so I shortened the barrel to 24" and recrowned. I made the bolt handle but had a professional do the welding since my welding skills aren't very good. I made the scope mount from a Remington 1100 mount and did the drilling and tapping then bedded the mount to the reciever. The scope on it now is just for mock up.

What I would like from the members of this forum is suggestions for a finish. I was thinking of a Camo Duracoat.

The bolt handle is positioned for faster followup shots. It took me a while to find a design that would work well with my arthritis. This was the winner. I'm hoping to use it for hunting but I will use it for target shooting as well. I'm hoping that it will be pretty accururate and I can shoot with some of the $5000+ guns. It's kind of a pipe dream but I will try. I have done all of the work myself except for the little bit of welding on the bolt handle.

Started customizing on the stock for the pistol grip. Took it out yesterday and fired a few rounds. I need to do some shimming on the scope mount. I would like to take it hunting some day.
