    Hey guys. New to the forum and didnt want to post until I was completely finished. I thought about the forums about 3/4 of the way through and decided to join. Yall dont flame me too bade because I’m really new to forums. 43 years old and just never really got into the internet chat stuff. Anyway. Can y’all give me advice? Comments? Positive Criticism? I’d like to hear what y’all think. Thanks.

    Thanks man. I appreciate it. Nothing to it. I used Rustoleum Camo paint with 3 coats of clear acrylic matte coat. Its just as tough as Duracoat. I think. Lol.

    Awesome thanks for the tips. It makes a boring black carbine stand out.

    If you don't mind me asking . What kind of optic and mount are you using. And what caliber is your carbine. I have the 9mm

    That is the Nikon fixed AR scope. Its about an $70 scope if I’m remembering correctly. Does a fantastic job with the 9 mm round.

    Oh. I forgot to tell you the specifics. Full basecoat of Rustolem Sand. Then just feather in Deep Forest Green and hit a couple of times with Matte Black. Dries really quickly. It was the easiest paint job I’ve ever done. Oh yeah. I poured 90% rubbing alcohol all over it first to clean.

  14. Good effect with the colors used and not overly done. Tastefully done.
