I am looking to putting a camo paint on my savage .308 but what to check and see how hard it would be to get the paint back off the rilfe if I wanted to? And how would it effect the stock finish? And the finish on my barrel if I choose to paint that would the paint come off that every easy and would it be effected?

Thanks for all the help just want some advice before painting the rifle.

Well I see that most people on here do it with rattle cans so I was probably going to go look at some different brands.

What would be recommended

I have been using cedar branches for my stencil. I also use a textured paint for the base coat which gives a sandy non-slip texture. I like the straw method and plan to experiment some now. the skulls are cool and I can see air soft and paintball players going for that.

Took a little practice on a shovel and ax handles until i got the color the way i wanted. Not super technical but takes time to prep

If you feel competent enough, durcoat is an excellent option for base layer, you can apparently krylon over top the duracoat and wipe off the krylon after if you decide to change color/pattern
