First off, sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. Hope you like it. I am too chicken to paint an expensive gun.
Here is the Magpul FDE color match.
I used a mix of Rustoleum Dark Taupe, Dark Forrest Green, Khaki, and Satin clear.
Iím not completely sure on the technique, but I started with Dark Taupe and dusted Forrest Green, and Khaki, to get as close as I could. It took a while. I then dusted it with clear for a little protection and a more flat look. The picture really doesnít do it justice. It looks very close in person.
Here is an old 870 20 gauge Iíve had since I was 13 years old. It needed some sprucing up and modernizing. I cut some holes out of the stock and made my own recoil pad. I also trimmed the barrel down and cut out every other bridge.
Technique was using Krylon Gray Primer base all over, then striped with Walmart $1 Flat White. Using White to sponge in gray areas and vice versa. Then sponge Walmart $1 Flat Black over the whole gun. The white was kinda runny and has a milky look to it. I like how it came out.
This is a Ruger Air Hawk .177 pellet rifle. I modified the stock some to make a thumb hook, and lowered the channel for the grip some. Technique was completely cover in Khaki. Stripe with Forrest Green. Then sponge in opposite colors. I think I may add a third or fourth color, not sure yet.
Good work on the camo.
Thanks, I'm proud of it. This forum kinda inspired me.

Probably not too good.
The Shotgun and the Pellet gun usually just get a bore cleaning. A little lube on the bolt of the shotgun.
The mount on the AR will come off before cleaning.
I need to get an airbrush and some Cerakote. I was just messing around with this.
Look good. I really like the 870.
