    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.

    Fantastic work! Does FBMG accept rifles/shotguns or NFA items for similar work?

    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.

    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?

    Well

    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.
