    Why have your weapons colored so bright though? it gives you away more easilly :p but you also get noticed easier.

    I wouldn't mind duracoating my 995 with an ACU pattern...

    Ha! Yeah, I'm just not all caught up in the "evil black gun" thing. The shotgun isn't so much "bright" as it is light. The finish is pretty dull and non-reflective, actually. The factory bluing was a bit glossy.

    ACU would look good on the 995 - I liked the look of ATI's ACU stock, but hated how the black receiver cover broke it up. Duracoating is a much better way of doing it and covering the entire weapon.
  9. those are really cool, I don't really like the gray one tho.

    that shotgun looks really weird in the grey. Not sure if I really like it... or really hate it. Certainly is original though.

    Pretty much how I feel about it - it's weird and I can't make up my mind about it either.

    There's something almost un-gun-like about it in photos, but when I handle it, I like the look of it.

    I'm doing the receiver and barrel of the Glenfield/Marlin next, but this time I'm going for something a little more conventional like Colt Gray or Snow Gray - I think either color would look good with the black stain on the stock.
