Init to see some pics. Does the film applied reduce friction or protect the metal from rust or does it just look damn good?

that gives you an idea.

the other thing is you need to have an ffl (if im not mistaken) to take possession of a firearm that isnt yours over 24 hours for purposes of making money. same is true of the graphics company. if they do it while you sit there and wait they wont need one. a gunsmith that works on a gun while the customer waits doesnt need one

if im mistaken on that im sure C3 can set me right
JonM, you are totally correct..

Looks great. The same process the manufactures use for their camo patterns.

The film has a matte clearcoat over it so it does protect from rust. I have dipped many long guns in cammo but the zombie print will be something a little different and zombies are hot right now so they should sell quickly the two I am doing now are being done on Spikes Tactical Zombie lowers so they should go together nicely. The did get a new clear that is supposed to have a rubbery style feel to it worked good on long guns but sucked on pistols.
