"Refinished" my rifle today, check it out. Also recently reconfigured the setup, changing the ARMS AimPoint mount with LaRue and switching the Surefire tape switch weaponlight with an X200. The Weapon light became awfully heavy after a while and I decided to cut down on weight. Someday maybe I'll switch forends to something a bit lighter too....

That turned out very nice, make sure you get these up in the pic thread so they don't vanish into the ARF void....

Well done.

Sweet paint job!

You couldn't have ben that bored. You didn't do the Magazine
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 6:09:10 PM EST
Nice work.
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 6:10:53 PM EST
Looks very nice! I've never seen someone camo up LaRue stuff yet.
WHY did you ditch the Arms mount, inquiring minds would like to know

Same here. Lumpy, need a test can shipped to you?
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 6:13:53 PM EST
Looks good to me too man.... I'll give it a +1


Link Posted: 10/3/2004 6:15:04 PM EST
Man that looks great! Was this your first one or have you been working at it awhile? Did you bake it or just let it air dry. TELL ME TELL ME TELL ME! I've got a couple of guns I want to refinish in this manner and my first few attempts did'nt go so well. Even though I tryed my best w/each one. Help please? You can IM me if you want. Great job! take care.
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 6:20:35 PM EST
Nicely done.
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 6:38:51 PM EST
That looks great. I used the Krylon from wally-world and it turned out a lot lighter. I like the shade you got a lot better. Here is a pic of mine, I need to do a new paint job.

Great job!!!
Same stuff I used on mine. I was pleased...but my Wally World has Brown too
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 7:25:37 PM EST
so when you paint an ar... do you do what you normally do when painting metal and scuff it up a good bit? or do you just degrease it, cover all the important holes, and spray away?
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 7:38:09 PM EST
That's a really good job! I think you may have a second career available to you.

Maybe I did mine differently or incorrectly, but I didn't cover anything (except I did close the dust cover). I just degreased it thoroughly and went to town w/ the Krylon. Granted, I never sprayed anything down the muzzle.
Link Posted: 10/4/2004 7:18:23 AM EST
What did you use to degrease it?

The only prep I did was remove the ladder rail covers, plug the mag well with a rag, degrease with brake cleaner and spray in the sun.
