Very cool. How were the skulls done? A stencil?

Congrats!  

Even though I voted for GetDowns M4A3.  

You've got a very cool and unique AR though.

Intimidating yet strangely compelling.Congratulations.

excellent paint job on that rifle.   Somebody could make some $$$ by making a similar finish commercially available ..... hint  hint  
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 10:30:12 PM EDT
Wow, that is an amazing looking rifle.  The skulls match the camo perfectly.  Outstanding!

Smithy needs to respond here, with an explanation of how he did it. Congrats dude, I voted for ya!

Congratulation Smithy

That said and not to belittle his win or weapon but I find it pretty ironic that his gun won. All the crap people usually post around here about how these are tools, not art. Function over form, yada, yada, yada and yet the first weapon to be chosen as ARFCOM's AR15 of the month won because it had a "cool" paint job

I'm not trying to start any shit, I just found it funny in a sadly ironic sort of way.

I agree.  
But that is a badass looking gun.  If I knew how to paint skulls on mine, I probobly would.

Now if there were poems or candy canes & flowers all over the weapon, I'd be like WTF!  But skulls are totally rad, to me at least.  Congrats smithy

I voted for it.  Also, I don't see how it wouldn't function just as well as any other AR

I IM'ed Smithy about a week ago to tell him I had nominated his rifle and that is was getting lots of votes but I haven't heard back from him. IIRC I believe he was headed out to NOLA for the relief efforts. If so he'll have a nice surprise when he gets home.
Link Posted: 9/12/2005 6:44:21 AM EDT
first time i looked @ it, didn't even notice the skulls.....

very good camo job.....worked on me initially....lol
Link Posted: 9/12/2005 6:56:41 AM EDT
That is one sweet rifle.
I might have to reconsider my attitiude
regarding camo rifles.

V-E-R-Y Nice

I never got around to voting, but I looked at the pics (dial-up, takes forever) :)

I didn't notice the skulls, either. Very subtle. Well done.

it looks very well-built & very functional...congrats!

Smithy's rifle has one of the best paint schemes Ive ever seen.


Must resist building another

Arrrggggghhh!!!

Thanks to everybody for all the compliments. Its done in duracoat. Istriped it with coyote brown then cut out some stencils of the skulls. I then painted over the skulls on my rifle and it turned out like this. I really like it. Ive painted my rifles a million times and ths is by far my favorite one. Sorry i couldnt reply earlier. I was in NO with the Oklahoma National Guard and hust got back yesterday. Thanks again!

Do you remember where you got the skull image at to do the stencils?
Link Posted: 10/9/2005 6:09:30 PM EDT
Smithy,
Do you have any larger pics and/or closeups of the skulls?
