I thought of painting mine, but would doing so void the factory warranty?

Kevin, every one of them looks awesome. It does take certian amount of courage to take a spray can to a $1000 scope.

You've got BIG BRASS BALLS for painting any of your optics, but they always turn out GREAT.

Let's see, ACOG up to $1000, Leupold M3 Tactical - $700+, Aimpoint - $300+ (All retail prices of course) - those are some heavy investment to be painting, but you've got the touch.

Wish I had the balls to paint my equipment. I know it is almost impossible to screw up camo and I have had a can of paint "cocked and locked" hovering over one of my hunting rifles, but I just couldn't pull the trigger.

Your work is inspiring and has me thinking about painting something................Now, where did I put that can of OD green..................

Painting is all about a series of quick, light coats. That is key, I think.

The very first coat should be pretty light. You don't want runs.

Also good prep work is a must.....ie taping, de-greasing, etc....

Kevin B and mcgrubbs:

What types of paints do you guys use to paint your weapons? I've been thinking about it for a while; I think I'll finally do it soon, just trying to learn a few more tips from people with experience.
Thanks.
