Maybe someday.

I haven't ever painted anything on a gun, and a scope might not be the best place to start.

I had originally planned on painting my entire gun with a Vietnam tiger strip camo pattern, bit I decided I liked the simple dual tone look that it has.

i painted my scope to match the newer green color i have on the AR now. it's not that hard. of course the scope isn't a high dollar unit either!

What did you use to protect the glass? I might try painting it and another old scope I have that needs a touch up. Would duracoat be fine? What did you use?

I painted my Mosin and a scope a while ago with the Krylon ultra flat camo axxe mentioned. As long as you tape off the glass and be sure you can't see any then it should work just fine it wasn't hard to do at all

Wow, Axxe. How "tactical" of you.
You're so tactical, man.
That green gives you suchhh a tactical advantage.
We are not worthy.

I painted mine with krylon too just make sure you remove the bolt and put painters tape on everything you don't want sprayed plus stuff a rag in the mag well and receiver it was nerve racking but it came out nice I think
