well this weekend i got a good deal on an upper to mate to my lower.



this was suppose to be my trunk gun and well after all the krylon threads on here i decided what the heck and packed the wifey and off to wally world.

used khaki tan, olive drab and black finished it with matte clear.

started this at about 1am and was decided i was finally finished at about 5am (i work graveyard so im used to this)


i like it! kept looking through my other stuff to see what i can paint cause i ended up with more than i needed



specs

wilson m4 bbl upper 16"
complete bushmaster lower

Looks good man! Love the netting pattern, i wish i would have used more of it on mine

When you get a chance, can you post a picture of it outside in its natural setting. I would guess that the larger swatches of color would work well.

Nice paint job.

could you post a picture of the netting you used please.

Thanks.

Pretty nice truck\trunk gun!

Where in Walmart do they keeps those paints (I would assume the paint dept. but around that place, who knows?)

The pattern looks perfect for a BM carbine as it kind of has a snakeskin look to it!

thanks for all the replies.

late for work will get pics of the netting up later.

The paint will come off with sunscreen, body oils, bug repelant etc... and make a mess. But it looks cool to have "field grade" gear. An unused rifle is a useless rifle, this ain't no safe queen.

thanks for the headsup and i assure you that this aint no safe queen! i dont own safe queens, that is pointless and there are better investments out there if i were to try and make a buck.

Ahhhhhhh.....my eyes......MY EYES!!!!!!!



The shutter speed was too low. If you were zoomed in, that would only increase the blur due to magnified wobble. If the light is low, I go take a braced kneeling (shooting position) and take my pictures that way. Most of the shooting positions will transfer over to photography work. The more braced you are, the better your shot. Kinda funny how some things translate into other aspects of life.

I have to admit, it takes far less courage to paint the furniture on an Ak, than to paint an entire AR!

any updates on how the stuff is holding up? I want to do my new m4gery also. More pics too!
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 4:19:38 AM EDT
its holding up pretty good but the only problem is that i put the clear coat on it and the handguards get kinda tacky along with the front sling swivel which is rubber coated
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 8:29:57 AM EDT
What kind of clear did you use?
