Hey guys, i am about to ship out my stock to McMillian to get a adjustable cheek riser and buttplate. Can you guys share some pics of bolt rifles with camo finsih. Not sure what they call it but I think they are the finishes the army snipers use. And I think you can do it in desert colors also. I am just trying to get an idea on how to customize my FN SPR A1. I would like to keep the action and scope black. Thanks

Oh also can you guys recomend guys who kotes firearms. Thanks

That is what is referred to as the GAP camo, I believe. Beautiful isnt it? I am going to be sending mine to GAP to get the same pattern in CeraKote. The one in the picture is likely molded in. I have an A5 Edge and they cannot be molded in, from what I understand.

1141 Swift St.
N. Kansas City.
816-221-1844

Interestingly, that's the exact same address for Badger Ordnance.


And real snipers use Krylon.

Good thing I am trying to be a real sniper, because I prefer finishes that are handsome and durable.

My plan is to go with Duracoat OD green for the metal parts and Advantage Camo on the McMillan A5 stock. I did the Advantage Camo on an M14 synthetic stock and handguard and it came out great.
