i'm good, but not that good! i only can wish i could paint that good! i spend less than $25 in materials for each gun i do and about three hours of my time to do a rifle. i know a guy who does airbrush painting, he could probably do one like the top pictures, but for what it would cost, i would never take the gun out the house! also i only did the synthetic stocks on my rifles, have not done the metal. if i wanted to do the barrel and receiver or the metal parts of a rifle, i would probably look at getting a different type of material, such as maybe the duracoat or some of the others carried by brownell's.

I did in fact use Krylon camo flat as well. I did a lot of auto body refinishing a while back and am real anal about prep. I cleaned with alcohol and hit all the parts with a scotchbrite (instead of buying adhesion promoter) then went in with 3 light coats and then 2 heavier coats. I effed up a few times because it was getting dark and I was getting impatient and there were a couple small runs on the stock but I went back ad knocked em out with the scotchbrite and another light coat. Hoping to take it out within the next week

thank you. i have done this on all of my synthetic stocks that came in black. i just don't like the black synthetic stock look. besides i'm a tightwad, and just wouldn't spend the $150 the guy wanted to do a camo dip of the stocks. at a 150 per stock, =$750! i did five rifles for less than $40 plus my time. so i saved 710, = new gun! my figuring anyways!
