For some reason I have always wanted a white rifle but have never followed through on my plans.  Well...I finally made the jump.  While it isn't completely white, the "snow camo" came out awesome.  The logo I integrated into the receiver set is from another group I belong to.

Rainier Arms Lower with mil spec parts kit except ALG QMS trigger and Strike Ind takedown pins.  STR stock and BAD grip.  

BCM stripped upper, SLR 12" rail, Rainier Arms/Rock Creek 13.7" barrel with a perm attached via silver solder B.E. Meyers flash hider.  PSA Premium BCG with BCM CH.

Magpul MBUS and Vortex SparcAR are on order.

Color palate includes...NRA blue, White, Light Gray, Dark Gray, Stainless, Black, and clear coat.  Special thanks to Kristoffer at KM3 solutions for the Cerakote.

I know it may not be everybody's thing, but hey, I like it!

Painting inside the hand guard must have been fun. I like that touch.

Imho the solid black grip/stock need the snow cam job as well.

I like you didnt do the barrel.

Eta  I also like you didnt do the small parts.
 What mag release is that?

The stock was done...it was an MFT minimalist stock.  The heating to 160 degrees for cerakote made the rubber butt pad pull away from the stock in 2 places so I just replaced it with a magpul stock.  I sold the MFT for $20 on the EE as it was still functional.  

Just note that the MFT minimalist stock really doesn't hold up that well to heat.

I don't care what it looks like as long as it shoots.

I am getting ready to do a white as I type this, just to damn cold to go to the shop for the milling part of it!

My first thought as well.

Just in case you (and apparently your applicator?) weren't aware, there are two types of Cerakote. One type doesn't require baking. Just saying....

Looks like a lot of time went into this but, I personally do not like white. Good job in any event.

I really like it also, I'm right in the middle of deciding which way I want to go also. I was considering a camo of White, crushed silver, tungsten, black. Or I may just go strait up Tungsten. I really like yours though, good job.

I really like it and the blue on the inside of the handgaurds is a great touch.
