Those are some great looking paint jobs. When you paint them up do you mask the actions, bolts, etc.? What about the variable scopes? Any concerns or problems with them getting mucked u pwith paint?Just wondering what you do to protect the moving parts. I want to do my mini-14.

I pretty much paint everything except for scope lenses and markings. As for it mucking up the udjusting on scopes, I haven't had any problems. You use light coats, just enough to fully cover what your painting.Remember, if you are using rattle can paint (I HIGHLY recommend the Krylon Fusion Camouflage at Wal-mart), you can always remove it later with gunscrubber, carb cleaner etc. So, if your bolt isn't as smooth as it used to be, pull the bolt and clean off the paint.

I used my wifes pantyhose :welcomeani: just kidding i used a fishing net, masking tape for the parts that u dont want to paint and spray paint, i lot of work u have to take it apart and paint every piece, but i like the results, those r variable scopes and they r working fine.

Nice work, guys! I understand there is a rattle-can "flat" clear coat that can be used to protect the finish, and remove any glare at the same time. Anyone use that stuff?

I haven't. Only local stuff I have seen ends up adding a SATIN finish to it which is shinier than the flat camo. I don't have the patience to order paint online. :hellohello9il:

If anyone know of such a product I would love a link. Repainting is a breeze and alot of fun, but it would be nice to be able to save/protect a sweet camo job. I love some of those shotguns pictured above. You have some sweet paterns going there wannakillacoyote.....who i will refer to from now on as WKC.

Haha, I do have quite a long handle. :hellohello9il: I think I remember duplicolor or maybe some brand at Brownells having an Ultra flat clear paint. I can't find it now.I don't worry about it though as all of my rigs are for hunting so if the camo job gets messed up, it really doesn't affect anything.

I'm partial to the broom jobs too. I was wondering what was used to get that pattern. What is the specific process?I assume you paint the whole rifle with a base of the lighter color and they splay/spread the broom bristles or whatever pattern you're using and spray the different colors to break it up.
