Default Moss 500

Allright I just picked up a Mossberg 500. Its in desert camo and I think I want to change it. Does anyone know a place. I'm in Akron Ohio. I don't mind shipping but don't want to if I don't have to.

The finish? Might be cheaper to buy another gun. Google gun refinishing, there are many.

Just sell it and buy another. Someone must want that thing badly... In The Sandbox.

i'm in raleigh, i've duracoated several guns of mine. just solid colors on them, but adding a pattern wouldnt hard. you could probably even do it yourself. key to a successful paint or camo paint job is prep. got to have all grease and oil off it and then sand everything down. set a base coat and then use some sort of stencil to make a pattern. for digital camo, i'd use graph paper with random patterns cut out of it.

here's my mossy, it's british DPM green right now, trying to decide what kind of pattern i wanna put over it, or if i'll just leave


i also did my SKS and 700P, but I dont have any pics of those right now. i did my pistol as well, but it's just black, so it's really nothing special.

duracoat is good stuff, i did the bolt on my mossy and my SKS and it still looks like the day i did it. i doubt it would be very cost effective to send it down though. you can probably find a gunsmith up there to do it. my smith does cerakote paint jobs on some of his clients guns. a precision rifle builder may do it for you too.

If he googles cerakote there are all kinds of people who will give it the finish he wants. Personally, I don't buy guns that I don't like. I did have a pistol refinished but I sent it to ruger so the finish wouldn't look like a teenager did it in his garage.
