    So I sponge painted a AR-15

    Ive noticed we have alot of gun guys on here "motorcycles and guns seem to go together" so here is a link to any interested in my rattle can camo paint job. I have wanted to paint one of my shtf/all purpose hunting rifles for along time. It took me about 2 weeks to build up the10888929123_d1e2d6ee20_b.jpg guts to put spray paint on a nice gun. So i sponge painted my AR-15

    Nice! Now that is a huge improvement over black but what the heck is Kryloleum paint that the guy on that forum said he used? What paint did you use?

    Mine is a Ruger SR-556 and more expensive than it should be but flawless none the less. I know what you mean about taking a while to get the courage to paint yours. I might have to practice on one of my 10/22's first. If the S ever does HTF camo will be much better than bling.

    Mixture of Krylon and Rustolium. He had some of each brand, in different colors.

    Thanks. After I wrote that I read the rest of the posts on the other forum. And Small's, I didn't realize that you are "the guy on that forum". Sorry 'bout that. The shotgun and muzzleloader look nice too.

    I paint my trail cams and security stuff with homespun camo to hide them from people, but have never used the sponge method. I paint base coat colors then push the rattle can nozzle down just until it sort of squirts instead of sprays. I make patterns from the blobs and spatters that hide things pretty well but after seeing your stuff, I'm going to try some sponge blots too. It looks pretty easy once you get the knack of it and screw-ups can probably be fixed easily.

    That there's funny!

    Small's, don't paint your TW keys camo if you're gonna ride in the woods!
    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Nice! I've been thinking about doing this to my 6.8. Its identical to yours, even have the midwest industries rail. I am in CA though, so my rifle has been neutered with a bullet button, and my 30rnd mags modified to only hold 10 rounds... Must be nice to live in free america!

    There's plenty of room out here! Vote with your feet brother!

    Nice job on the camo - I like to spray through mesh and move it around to make shadowy looking snake scale camo. Use Krylon flat camo colors - works great! Just don't get any solvent on it...

    I just got a new one - rifle kit from del-ton assembled on a lower that the local state gun owner's board did a group buy on. Turned out nice. I like del-ton and doing it this way avoids the excise tax on most of the cost of the gun. This cost about $650 total. Chromed lined barrel, m4 double feed ramps, ergo pg, moe trigger guard, 5 position buttstock, phantom flash hider, yhm buis.
