Well. It took me almost all day but I finished the sand camo ar15. Out here in montana this seems to be the best cammo I can find. Its a bake on finish and more durable than I would have thought. I think it looks great what do you think? I'd like to see some pics of other camo ar's if you guys have any

thanks

Looks great. But please paint the flash hider then repost. Thanks!
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 5:27:54 PM EST
I didnt paint the fh cause I thought the flame would just ruin the finish. I'll take it into consideration, being that its a bake on, I'd have to take it all apart .... again. But thanks for the sugestion!

Looks great man. What kind of finish did you use?
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 5:35:50 PM EST
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 5:36:59 PM EST
its a krylon ultra flat that I sprayed on after an extensive cleaning. after I sprayed it on I baked every part in the oven at 400 for 10 minuites. Let it cool and repeat. It turns out pretty thick so cover things you dont want oversized but its pretty tough too. The thing that took me soo long was I took the gun COMPLETLY apart every spring and roll pin was removed. It was actually kind of fun. I'm glad you like it, thanks for the comment!

Your probably talking about the KNS Non rotational pins. There super schveet! they positively stop pin rotation by locking the two pins included together with the connecting bar things, thats what you see in the picture. I think they look really cool, weather or not I was actually concerned about pin rotation. But hey, I just painted my ar kaki, so what does it matter to me
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 8:24:06 PM EST
Yeah, I'd say it's the thing to do...

thats really cool! does it have much glare in the sunlight or is that mostly from your nazi flash?
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 8:39:24 PM EST
It's my paint-bubbling flash that's doing it.... it's Flat Dark Earth Alumahyde 2.. I'll try to get a good outdoor pic of it tomorrow in the daylight.
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 8:40:44 PM EST
damn that flash. Where do you guys get alumahyde?

Affirm, I think they are the only supplier.

Makes me want ot paint one of mine. Now which color? I'm just an OD type though.
Link Posted: 10/23/2004 11:04:01 PM EST
Excellent gun porn folks.

I'm not quite brave enough to color my AR, but I'm going to start small, maybe with the beat up Ruger Mk2 I have laying around here somewhere.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 1:57:03 AM EST
nice work ggllggll !

having been to Montana recently, Ihave to say your choice in camo fits the environment.

Beautiful state, Beautiful AR

Excellent Job! I like It

The sand looks great. You did a good job but , personally, I'd go ahead and give it some sharply contrasting stripes. Dark earth brown, OD or even black (or a combination of all) would really break it up.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 5:47:17 AM EST
Looks great!

Gun looks great. You must be worried about somebody swiping it with that 1911 "cocked and locked" above it in the pic.

Great looking rifles. I like the looks of those, but they would stand out like a sore thumb here in KY.
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 7:02:56 AM EST
Well, I don't know about KY, but brown and brown-based camo is very effective in Indiana.

First of all, thanks everyone for you comments. Second, in MT there's not so much sand as there is dead sage and grass. Everything is kaki out on the plains. I thought about going with a few contrast stripes but I think I'll leave it the way it is for now.

Thanks again!

nice pics, for sure!!

Hey QS, If you don't mind me asking, how and what do you use to maintain your M4-96D? I am always having trouble with mine sticking open after just a few rounds. Any help would be appreciated!
Link Posted: 10/24/2004 8:10:27 AM EST
You mean the mount, I assume? Are you using the right grease on it?

I finally got a bearing puller to disassemble mine.

I like it but would like to see the pins the same color as the rifle.

The paint job looks great. My first thought was: How long is your neck? OR How do you like the "chin weld" on that setup?

It sounds getto but I use a piece of copper pipe insulation thats about an inch and a half thick. It slides right over the CAR stock and fits like a glove. Its tall enough that I can rest my cheek on it and see through the scope or I can squish it down and see the iorns. Hey man, whatever works!

Link Posted: 10/24/2004 8:41:14 AM EST
I've got a few pics of QS's rifle, if he dosen't mind me sharing.

Side View


Brass on the AR, you can see how well the standard brown works in Indiana.


And because you can see the grip in a previous picture, me shooting the Wilson Combat, thanks again QS.

Yeah, everything is more green than tan down here.
