Ok, what I did was exchange my Polytech soft stock for a synthetic, and I know a few tricks with spray paints so I did this resist. It involves taking rustoleum sunburts yellow, put it on evenly, while it is wet, less than 60 seconds from time of aplication, you go over it with Hammered metal copper spraypaint, the two paint coats mix, and you get what I call a Gecko effect. It works with any color. I like the way this turned out, and it is easy to reapply or strip. What do you all think?

By the way it is alot brighter on film. Think lizard skin in normal light.
I adde some green and bronze to it after my critique.

I think you should scuff it up and paint it OD

You forgot to glue the macaroni and pine cones on.

Looks great but too flashy IMO. The finish is something I would want on a fishing lure to attract attention, not on my gun. I will say it came out nicely though, might wanna consider doing that with a OD green and coyote brown mix sometime, all flat for a extremely dull finish.

Looks great if you are trying to blend in at the disco....

I wanted it to be cool. I can hose it down dull green any old time. And yes. Coyote brown, and hammered bronze would look good for a tactical look. I highly recomend Freds stocks! I am verry happy to get a "Fuck No" from Lumpy makes me feel right at home.

You might live in Compton and drive a 6-4 Impala if you..........

Personally, I hate gold anything, but that's just me. I think with the whole Bling culture that's been going on Gold just looks cheap and cheesy.

If you like it... cool, just don't think for a minute you've got any chance of not standing out. Sometimes standing out isn't a good thing..

I give you credit for trying something different..........with that said, If it were my rifle would take a 3rd shot and not paint the swivels and buttplate

Scuffi t again and paint it OD............you can thank me later

Why don't you just get it over with and paint it pink?
Link Posted: 8/26/2005 1:15:31 PM EDT
Wow you traditionalists/tac ninjas, are verry sensitive about your m1A paint schemes.
