Is there a link on how some of the members do their paint jobs? I practiced on an airsoft and quite honestly...it sucked. Please help.

Go to the Refinishing forum under Armory ^ , It's at the bottom of the page. They have picture threads and tutorials very helpful.

buying a new ar15-1,200 $, painting it yourself-50$, taking it to the range w/ the new paintjob and getting laughed at? PRICELESS!!! all i can say is keep practicing on your airsoft disaster a few more times before hitting the ar. id hate to see ya ruin it. good luck though. TS

i dont know whos program your on when it comes to people w/ little to no painting experience. and yes i do like a good paintjob on an ar. but after funning w/ the guy a little i did suggest for him to practice plenty before attempting it on his ar as they are not cheap. i on the other hand wont attempt or chance ruining something expensive due to my lack of experience w/ said project w/ out lots of practice. and if i want it perfect, ill pay a professional to due it. you shouldnt just tell a guy, "ya go at it". cause if he ruined the project, he'd be bummed. therefore "practice makes perfect"!!
