I'm not much of an artist, but here is what happens when you hand me some Krylon spray paint, a couple of m14 stocks, and a 12pack of beer.











For actual reason of camouflage, my home made rattle can wonders work well, and are easy to touch up, as mine are not babied at all, and see alot of field use/hunting/etc.....

Here's my attempt at the 'pine needle' paint job.
Delton middy upper, spikes tactical lower and a cheapo scope.

Here's my mini, done with Krylon, and a couple of .22's OD'd with Krylon. Very durable and easy.

I really like that pine needle paint job soldierman.

Here's my Eddystone. The steel is done with Brownell's Aluma Hide II and the stock is done with Krylon textured paint.

Is that a braided sling? And I agree, a How To, is in order.

HK. that sling is really easy to do i did one with od green paracord on my mauser. theres a thread with pics some where in the C&R section. and i plan on sporterizing and painting the mauser when i get some $ in. thinkin green and black.

BTW M14 are those JAE stocks on your 14's. id love to have a M14 with a jae stock would be so nice but so expensive.

Thanks y'all. Yep, the sling is braided out of 550 cord. I learned how to make those 'survival' bracelets that you see everywhere so i figured i'd make a sling with the same type of braid. It's roughly 55' or 60' of 550 cord.

On the paint job how to...i've never written one before but i'll try. It's actually very simple. I have already painted my AR so my son will be very happy that i'm going to use his Nerf gun for demonstration purposes. lol


Get you some brake cleaner. I had some cheapo break cleaner in the garage already. Spray down all the surfaces of your rifle that you will be painting. Any grease, oil or solvent will cause the paint to bubble or chip.


I went to my local Lowes and purchased a can of Matte Clear and the Krylon Ultra Flat in just about every camo color they make. lol. You can make yours any color you like.


After all the brake cleaner is dry(very important), start with which ever base coat you like. I started with the lightest tan. Give it a solid coat. Note: Small sprays, thin spritzes with the paint will keep your stress level and drips down. You can lay it on a table with a drop cloth(very important if you are married. I may have kind of accidentally sort of painted the patio table) or hang it up by a hangar from the flash hider.
