I just finished up a camo job on my Mossberg model 500 that is my coyote gun out here in the CA deserts. I am happy with the way my Krylon paint job turned out. Now I need to invest in a recoil pad for this shotgun as the one that is on it is as hard as a rock.Posted ImagePosted Image

I was surprised at how well it turned out. I have a rifle back in MO that is going to get the same treatment as soon as I get back there.

Great job on the camo. Did you use some kind of stencil to get your patterns?

I used a broom to make the pattern. I cut the stands of straw from the broom and taped them together. That's a Carlson's choke.

Looks great Heath! That is exactly how I will be doing my Mossy 590 when i get the Barrel back. If I don't like the way my Mossy shoots, I will paint my Beretta Urika (though I hate to paint that wood).So when do you escape back to MO?

Looks great CF! The broom bristle technique is hard to beat. Which color did you use for the base coat?

It's hard to tell in the pictures, but I used a coyote tan as the base.

It takes longer to prep it and wait for the rifle to dry between coats than it does to apply the paint. Duracoat is pretty durable AND it isn't expensive so if you goof it up you can just add more paint. It truly is easy to do and I have no doubt you can make yours look great.
