    ACU Duracoat

    Some of you wanted to see progress pics of my experiment in Duracoat. I started with a factory black Rem. 700 SPS Varmint. First I masked of the accent areas and painted the entire stock dark green. (Separately,I painted the barrel Tango Down Dark Earth.)


    Next I added a layer of adhesive templates and painted the next darkest color.


    Then I continued adding more templates and painting until I'd painted all the colors I wanted.


    Here's the final results

    WOW! Looks great! I have been wanting to paint a couple of mine MARPAT but haven't had time or would trust myself to do a good job. Yours looks great and I may have to look again at painting mine!
    If you can see the big picture, you are not concentrating on your front sight post.

    Do you have to order the specific colors you want? I try to get mine from hardware stores but they have a very limited assortment of colors.

    Lauer Custom Weaponry is the manufacturer of Duracoat. They have a wide variety of colors to choose from and Camopaks that have specific colors already grouped together. I used the ACU Camopak plus Tango Down Dark Earth.
