Thank,

I have done paint jobs on a .308 bolt gun, and my icon photo of my Ar.

I haven't seen the jugernot stock, but it looks awesome....... Probably about $1300's awesome!
That one is a bit more preferably to some of the other chassis to me because I like bullpup styles. Cool photo!

Did your other projects turn out that good?

The thing about cammoing your guns is you can make it what ever you like! If your going for a certain look, follow in the shoes of others on the web, if you have your own vision run with it.
The hardest part of painting a gun is the first squirt of paint....... After that your committed.

I pattern mine after my local surroundings. Matching colors. What leaves you use doesn't matter a whole lot when you are looking from more than about ten feet away.

I think they turned out, just as good as the m1a, just different. I have a tendency of never doing the exact same thing twice. Just seems to happen that way.

If you are looking for assistance on a project, let me know. Would be glad to give guidance. But you really can't screw a paint job up, unless you forget to tape off your crucial areas. You don't like how it turned out, just toss on another coat of paint and make it a little different until you get what your looking for.

I really like the Brownell paint. It's always my base coat. Seems to hold on well.

Amazing job, really that's fine craftsmanship. I respect the work you put into the rifle and skill it took to do it. Ill have to learn more about that stuff. Thanks for the inspiration

Thanks for all the positive comments Guys and gals.

My intent was to show how easy this sort of a project is, and hopefully inspire you to create your own projects and share them with us!!

This wasn't done with any tool that can't be picked up for a couple bucks at a garage sale. It's just a mater of deciding "they don't make what I want!" And then doing it yourself.

Glad you enjoyed it.

I like my M1A1 Spfld. But I would really like to have had one of the M-14 Milled steel receivers. The M1A1 has a Cast metal receiver it just seems like something is missing.

Thanks


Yea I hear ya on the receiver. I've never held an old m14, so I don't know the difference, but I imagine a milled receiver would be better.

Anyone have any hand load recipes for the m1a that they would like to share??
Disclaimers not needed..... I'll do my homework on them too.

Thanks again for the support.
