Here's the results of one of my "Krylon/6-pack specials".........

Big M14 fan here!

The M1 Carbine stock is a Ramline. Fun to shoot for the whole family.
My wife is recovering from a shoulder surgery, so she cant blast away with her M1A quite yet. She is pullin the trigger on the 10-22, and the M1Carbine till it heals up some more.

Water logged bullets aint much fun.....
Your's looks like they be gettin baked out in that sun. (Rumor has it that UV rays can cause gun cancer. Send um to me and I'll see if I can save um for ya..........
Yeah, all of mine get baked in the sun, bro. Ha. That is why I use light colors. Keeps them cool in the dez.

I had one of my parkerized USGI M14 mags, and one that I had painted tan laying on the ground in the sun a couple of years ago. Picked up the tan one and it was fine. Then grabbed the parked one and almost branded myself. Hilarious, but such a difference. I paint almost everything now. Guns, scopes, stocks, binos, spotting scopes, tripods. They all get painted. Makes them easier to use, and they are all just tools anyway. I came home with my brand new Yamaha ATV a couple of years ago, drove it off the trailer and started masking off the areas that needed to be painted. Anything black got painted "Coyote", which works in the dez and still fits in with the terrain in Utah where we hunt.

I hope your wife's shoulder heals fast. Thanks for your offer of "chemo" for my guns. I'll keep you posted. Your Krylon job looks a lot like my B&C stock on one of my sporterized 1917's (in Coyote).

Rifles? No, I dont like loud noises. I don't own any. Pistols? No, they are too dangerous. Shotguns? Too much recoil. You gun guys scare me. I do think I want an assault rifle AK 47 with a barrel shroud though, or maybe a saturday night special or a street sweeper.


Nice collections gents, I love the Garands. Colt, that is one helluva collection of black HDRs there. Good effort!

Hey 01ColtColt,

I did a similar scheme on my Colt Enhanced Stainless Commander. I melted all the edges, had Jim Hoag put on some decent sights (his fronts are machined on) and sandblasted the finish. Then a few years later I decided to Gun Kote it. But I was very low on both flat black and OD green. So I did the slide in OD and the frame in black. Then I used the last of the black and dusted the slide and baked the whole thing. It turned out pretty good and has held up well. Did it about 4 years ago. I'll probably strip the frame and do it again in a much lighter color, but leave the slide as is. What do you think?

Here are a couple more. Sorry about the picture size of some of those and these below.




I've got a few more than the ones I've shown, maybe another time after I can reduce the size of all the pictures.
