To me camo is only appealing when it is on plastic or generic cloth, none of which has any attractive tones---
---or when you Need to hide in the frozen woods of Kherson Ukraine because your Russian officers ran away..
Old school cool.
Camo tape would work and you could still show off that good looking rifle after.
Yep, that`s a beautiful rifle. Leave it. Use the camo wrap ( I have, they work ).
I would be too busy admiring my beautiful rifle.
However, I see brand new cars that people have covered the paint with a plastic wrap, so there are certainly tastes out there that I don’t understand.
I do have a rifle that I purchased years ago, stored in a hot water heater closet by the previous owner. Like new in function, bore and wood but exterior metal freckled with surface rust. I have thought about having it dipped before (hydrographic camo seems to hold up better than paint) but it still kills stuff the way it’s always looked…
My opinion probably doesn't mean much, but I'm impressed.
Secondly, were it my setup, I would burlap strip wrap the rifle. With changing seasons, just rewraping with a different pattern/ color seems easier than having more and more coats of paint. Either way congratulations on a nice set up.
Don't. Touch. It. Don't even think about touching it! Just Don't! Blued steel and walnut are meant to be seen and enjoyed, not covered up by paint or tape.
I don't get the spray on camo thing. Unless you're playing rambo, have Red Dawn fantasies WOLVERINES!!! or are actually in the military, what's the point when wearing a blaze orange hat and vest? I wear blue jeans hunting.
Leave it! Please! That is a beautiful boom-stick.
I have already changed the value of it by converting it to a K Hornet! It shoot better after the conversion. But still decreased the value
It's been converted to a K Hornet already so loading isn't a issue. & Head spacing off the shoulder took care of the flyer issue from most Hornet rifles
predator hunting blaze orange is not a requirement. I carry a orange beanie in my pack so if I get something I don't get shot carrying it out .
Separate names with a comma.
