I know it's still a few months away but I'm already itchin' to get back out into the duck blind. Today I got a wild hair and decided to give my bad weather gun some TLC. I originaly stripped it down just to give the bolt and magazine tube a coat of dry grafite but when I went to spray the parts I found that my aerosol can had leaked out all of the propellant. ;) I figured that scince my gun was already torn down I might as well give 'er another coat of paint. This time I left out the green in an attempt to simulate the Max-4 camo pattern that I buy most of my duck hunting clothes in. Posted Image Posted ImageI think it came out ok but next year I'll try to find some tan and brown that matches a little better.

NICE WORK! Kinda reminds me of "Tiger" jungle camo. Did you use the "Broom Method"?

Nice paint job. Looks a lot better than mine. During duck season mine is all black with a little mud here and there. :signbummer8tl: If you want to test out a shotgun the duck blind is the best way. Most will have to come apart and be cleaned a few time's to make it through the season functioning properly.

Yep, the broom method is easy and works pretty good.

Does that stuff have to be baked in an oven to cure?

No, it does not. But you do need an airbrush. They have two kinds for sale. I had trouble with a bad valve on the "premier" model, but the cheapie worked just great for my friend. Both use areosol cans.They say you can put it in the oven for a few minutes, but letting it dry in the sun is the same thing. I need to go back and put on a few more coats, so I am going to buy a real airbrush kit. (my son needs one for taxidermy anyways).I only got enough on for a covering coat. I want a few more coats. Then I have one more 870 and a 700 .270 to do next.
