Or pretty much any other gun for that matter, unless perhaps I was going to be dressed in a ghillie suit and going against two-legged upright critters, or some such....
But, if I owned that gun and I really wanted to camo it, I'd camo it.
If you do paint it, Id leave the poly coat alone and just paint over it. If you use a removable paint, it will come off easier and wont hurt the finish.
I'm curious, Why are you considering doing it - what are the expected advantages?
I got a ghillie. But it's shiny
ity shiny & every time I take it out it gets a new scratch or ding
That's called " good, honest wear."
Wood and blue steel for me.
....but suit yourself.
All kidding aside, I wouldn't camo up a wood stocked Browning.
I think I actually prefer guns with some honest patina of use and wear. (Not abuse.) And if I'm the one who was fortunate enough to have put that wear there, much the better!
Yeah the first time I took it out I squatted down to put the call out & it fell off my shoulder & put a small ding in the octagon barrel .
I have air brushes it would be a cerakote if painted ...& I have done a few rattle can jobs that look pretty decent! But I am more than likely gonna leave her alone
Something to ponder on
You could easily cover the shiny parts temporarily and clean it up later.
Finding a stock for a 1885 is almost impossible. I would love a set off a Winchester 1885 ( same gun by same Japanese Company just different branding) but the stocks are flat not polished like the Browning . Anybody wants to swap let me know
