    Well, a little Birchwood Casey touch up paint to blacken the scratches...

    Any color you want as long as it's a Black Rifle! :D

    If I had an AR, and could do a good tiger stripe, or knew someone who could, I'd have to go through with it. No bright colors though, it'd have to be a camo scheme, with OD and earth tones. I'd do orange and black on the right handgun though.

    I've been thinking about having one done in flat dark earth, just because you almost never see them. Honestly I've never seen one that was completely FdE. I'd like to see one in this thread if anybody has one?

    Oh wow what took me so long to see THIS thread? :)

    Got mine Duracoated for a review/interview in the now-defunct hunting magazine I used to edit, by a great guy named Will Conlee who runs CustomGunCamo.com. I don't know if he does firearms anymore since he moved but he really is great at what he does.

    Krylon and a little brake cleaner. I used a gutter guard to get the pattern. It was easy as all get out.
