I have a HS Precison stock(black). I am wanting to paint it a tan/sand color. Does anyone have a particluar brand of paint to use? Do I need to spray a primer coat on first?

Thanks for your help. I have been a long time reader of the forum and this is my first post.

I have a similar question along the same lines. I was going to use my airbrushes to lay a light finish over the matte black on my Remington 700p and accessories, but I am coming up short trying to figure out how to get the leaf outlines on there like he has in that picture. Does anyone know how its done? I saw a rifle similar to the outcome im looking for posted here, with the leaf colors being in a white/light grey color.

WOW :shock: . Dude, that's awesome!

Most likely he used the leaves temselves as the templates. One of the things I like about the DuraCoat is that you can get templates to apply the finish with. One thing is for dang sure, that dude pent a heck of a long time on that baby. *whistles*

Looks like some of it is reversed though....Might be a job for my digital graphics software.

I dunno, I looked at that site, and I wasnt extremely impressed. I could do that pretty easily, but its not the look im going for.

Actually, it doesn't really matter if it's reversed since the point of cammo is not to make the rifle look like something, but rater to make it look like nothing. Besides, if the enemy gets close enough to notice that it's reversed, you're stewed anyhow :lol: .

No tactical advantage, pure cosmetic, but I am thinking of doing Urban Tiger Stripes on mine. Should be a good choice for me, challenging, not run of the mill and definitely not an easy pattern to recreate with airbrushes.

Not real fond of the first link.

But I like the second link. I perfer grays opposed to blacks for winter settings. The second link looks like it would get the job done very well.
