It'll blend in with the interior of the toolbox on my truck.

Yeah that is pretty stupid. But hey if it makes 1 person happy more power to em.

I would almost be willing to wager that at some point in the life of this thread someone will say they like it.

The beauty of that pattern is that if you don't like it, you don't have to put it on your rifle.

I like it!!!!!!!!!

I will be willing to wager that the person that posted above thinks the gun is real, and can't find humor in anything!

That rifle is real. It is a real pattern from LCW. I would have one of my AKs done in that pattern just to be different. Not on any of my ARs though, I like them just fine in black.

For a tool-related AR I would rather have one of the Dewalt yellow CavArms MKIs.

How does that camoflage the gun unless you don't want anyone to see it sitting in your truck's rear bed or something?

I think it would be ok camo for snow/urban environment. Think of a concrete driveway that has just had some light snow on it, the grey of the concrete and the white of the snow would make a pattern similar to that. Other then a snow/winter environment I don't see much use for that pattern.

Its just a way to customize your rifle. They sell pink too, but unless you're trying to blend in at a barbie convention, its not about being ninja, its about making it your own.

Take a look at some of the outlandish rigs some benchrest shooters have, after that, the diamondplate will look tame in comparison.

Not everybody customizes their rifles for HSLD applications. That looks like something you might see at a 3 gun match or something similar. Not camo, just eye-catching.

Exactly. It's just to make the rifle different and eye catching. Nothing wrong with that.

Maybe your right. It seems like there might actually be an "urban" theme to the pattern, but it is probably just a gimmick. Possibly suitable for snow, but... probably more like the pink AR, for a reaction.

I don't get it either....

I think you misunderstood my post. I think it is stupid but I didn't say it was a bad thing if someone likes it. You pay a $800 for a rifle/carbine you can do whatever you want with it as far as I'm concerned. Put rainbow flags and an engraving of Liberace for all I care.

The author of the thread and the subsequent posts thereafter were basically in agreement that it was not to their nor my likings. I added that someone will come along and say they like it, not meaning it was a bad thing to like it. I think the bARbie-15 was ridiculous but hey the guy's daughter loved it and that's all that matters.

Well, I wouldn't do it to my AR....it has enough oddity to it already...but I sure as hell would like to see one finished like that just to see how it looks in person.

Its a free country (in some parts). It definitely has a character of its own! I'm sure that the people that think it's gey are the ones that are trying to justify that thin spot in their wanabe M4 barrels
