OK. I just finished painting my gun Black/OD Green. I still need to do some more work, but It's coming along nicely.


That is VERY sharp!

Nice work! What kind of paint did you use? (I'm new to this, but, sitting down with my daughter to paint a rifle pink, is looking attractive to me right now)

It's Krylon Camouflage Olive Green. It cost $4.50 at Wal-Mart. I have a Crossman air rifle that I think will get the treatment next. :lol:

:shock: Really? How's that hold up? Do you just tape off the areas that you don't want green, and spray away?

Does it come off on your hands, while you're shooting? What about if your hands get sweaty while shooting? How does it affect grip?

I know, among other things, I'm full of questions :P

Yep. Just tape off and spray. All the white in the picture is masking tape. The Black is the original Nylon finish, so i won't have an issue with that. I'm not sure how the Green will hold up. I have a lot of paint left, so that shouldn't be a problem.

That's a nice carbine, Ape.

I've got to buy those bushman mods, and get someone competent to put them in for me.

I love the look of that trigger, and I HATE the stock charging handle.

Thanks 995. I think I still need to put a Bushman picatinny rail on but other than that I like it just the way it is. ;-)

Puttin the trigger on isn't that bad though. It takes a little patience, but other than that it's no biggy. ;-)
Mine was already on it when I got it but I took it off and pollished it since it was painted black.

I think you hit the footrest, your wife's gonna be PISSED.

Seriously though, if you let the paint cure for a week or so , it shouldn't come off at all.

that is pretty. Do you worry about it holding up on a real firearm, vs. airsoft?

Well I know a few people who've used them on their real guns for quite some time now with no issue's. And mine has been through quite a few rounds already on my SU16. ;-)
