Default My refinish job

Hello;

I wondered what others would think of my refinish job on my Mini14.
I wanted something more subdued.
Your opinions would be appreciated,
Oh, by the way, the work was done by Acoating in Peoria,AZ.

That looks great and I'm sure it's better than the factory finish.

Nice.

You hit the subdued target in the 10 ring.

Great look!

Default my refinish

Thank you for all the replies. I guess when it was all said and done, it cost me about $400.00. I know that's a lot, but he did some mags and if you could handle it, you would see how well done it is. I do intend to have my Glock done. I know tenifer don't need help, I just like the looks.
