Looks good to me, any further paint is strictly a personal decision.

Looks good to me too. Whatever floats your boat on the smaller patterns. You could also use a small watercolor brush to clean up some of the bleed over. Just an idea.

Did you enjoy the project? Are you happy with the results? It looks like it was a fair amount of work.

Are you aware that by Texas common law you are married to her now. Don't know where you live but I would be careful about calling her your wife if your not serious.

lol not sure about ga laws on that but we probably are common law married
i read once that if you check into a hotel as mr. and mrs. 3 times that you are common law married. anyhoo it is serious. we plan on getting married just can't afford it yet. also my job doesn't allow any vacation time and i dont wanna get married and have to go to work a day later. i got me a good one i aint lettin her go anywheres you can bank on that.

i think i am going to touch up that paint job a little bit theres a little run near the buttstock and the tape took a lil tiny bit here and there and it came out good but i wanted great so im gonna tweak it a bit until i think its perfect

Wow, awesome paint job, man!

You've inspired me to do a paint job on my M700 now. Thankfully I have an airsoft one to try it out on first! Haha!

Although, I'm thinking a woodland MARPAT.
