Krylon + M4 = Awesomness

Took a cue from GhstFace and painted up my rifle today.

I like it, blends in well with the surroundings around me.

It took a lot of thinking and bravery to paint the LR-308 I had a while back. Did a woodland snakeskin camo pattern using Krylon Flat camo green, tan, and brown. Finished with a flat acrylic enamel then let it sit in the sun for a couple days to bake everything on. Luckily I am friends with the current owner and he lets me hold it every now and then....lol I've painted several rifles, but this one is my favorite.

I don't paint all my guns, but certiain one's that I feel will or have been used in the woods for hunting, or that I might use in the future for some similar situation, I do paint. As mentioned, black stands out, so if you have the balls and the know how to put a rattle can to your gun, then rock on. I've laid in the grass prone shooting this rifle while wearing full multi-cam and had friends take pictures. It's hard to find me in the pics...lol I have some great pics, but I'm not a big fan of posting images of myself on open forums as most of us would understand.

From my experience the barrel is usually fine. When it heats up the paint will bake on. The only places I've seen Krylon come off were the muzzle brake and lower reciever, and that was without using any enamel . Anywhere that you let gun cleaner accumulate. If you are careful with cleaners you're fine. I always finished mine with a flat acrylic enamel, so if it's bare paint I can see it wearing with contact from gun cleaners. The nice thing is it's easy to fix if you do mess it up. I recommend either the acrylic with Krylon, or going with a duracoat setup.

I don't care how well it wears, I just want it to wear.

I love the look of a well used, dinged, scratched, and beat up rifle. It's a tool not a safe queen.

I like the attitude. If you're going to use it then you may as well make is as functional as possible. Many people worry about the durability of guns and never use test the weapon for its intended purpose...lol Glad to see you're willing to actually use one, abuse it, and benefit from a good quality rifle.

Always fun when someone looks at your go to rifle and says, "Is that a footprint?"
