Im just finishing up a custom sagebrush camo job on a target AR-15. I'd like to share some photos but, being new to the forum, Im wondering if that is ok here or if you guys want so see the gun at all. Post or take the pole to help me out on this please.

You have every right to post them here.
This is the Rifle Forum and you don't need a poll.
Have at it and enjoy.
Oh, and welcome to the forums.

Always interested in different finishes, camouflage included.


Here's my first try - only because the wood was so plain.

Before:

The wood was nothing but plain. Great excuse to experiment. A few cans of krylon and a piece of cardboards with some holes in it later.

I happen to have pictures of that very rifle. Correia had me take a bunch today. You do fine, fine work. That Sage Camo pattern really breaks up the image of the rifle. Be hard to spot from any kind of distance. You won't find many High Roaders opposed to gratuitous pictures. :D

Edit: If inappropriate or anything...ah hell I've been up for twenty-six hours now. I don't even know if this is real.

Bed time!

Those are great pictures Nightcrawler. Im glad you are happy with the camo. It should blend even better after the matte clear coat evens out the difference in sheen.

GunDoctor
March 21, 2008, 11:27 PM

FBMG that camo work is really great!!!

I wonder how it would look on a Holland and Holland safari rifle?

Haha. Just wanted to see you all go :eek:!!!!!

But seriously, that is a fantastic job. If I had any sort of TUBAR rifles, i'd be sending them in.

So, how much to send mine in?

GunDoctor

I'll shoot you a private message with the info.:cool:

FBMG, he said "your welcome!"

Hokkmike, he is like any other artist. He has to be in the "mood", so you would need to send your rifle in and plan on it being with him for a few years!

No, I don't think it would be appropriate at all to show pictures of guns on here. I would be highly offended.:fire:

LOL, EXCELLENT job buddy...That camo looks fantastic! How well does it hold up?

GunDoctor

It holds up quite well. You do need to go easy with it for a while (light duty) because DuraCoat continues to cure up to 3 weeks. After that it takes a lot of abuse. That's why I pioneered the use of it with the Dept. of Energy when I worked for them.

Great job guys. I just finished my Mosin Nagant this morning. I gave $20. for it 2 weeks ago. Couldnt see thru the barrel. Week of scrubbing, now she is burning up surplus ammo. Was a black beast, untill I looked at some camo jobs around the site and others. Here is the results(oh yeah, my wife helped me:p)4 spray cans, 1 roll of tape. Sorry for the little picture. Will try again later.

Nightcrawler, I had to laugh when I saw one of your sigs. Indeed, the cake is a lie, but we do what we must because we can.

No one has posted here for a couple weeks so I just wanted to close it out by saying thanks to everyone that posted and took the poll.
