Looks good, but it must be tough shooting it like that. Missing something?

Well, pine straw isn't just for guns. I got sick of the bright green 4" vent tube sticking out of my State mandated $20k raised septic system so I broke out the Krylon again. It blends in well with the trees when looking at it all the way back from the house.

My mower does go 17mph, but even mowing at that speed I really would have trouble missing a pipe that sticks up about 3 feet out of the top of my damn 6-1/2 foot tall shit hill!

If we're comparing it to someone who ran into a house with a lawnmower, I don't think it will matter what color the vent pipe is!

Sounds like it will work, but it will most likely come out darker than you think with an OD base and then adding brown and khaki over it.

Your base coat is always going to be the more prominent color unless you use very few pine needles.  If you want to match the tan and brown in TX, I would suggest a FDE base and stripe it out with brown and a little OD using more pine needles.    

If you are not sure, I would highly suggest using a piece of wood or cardboard or toy gun or some other practice piece and see what you get.  Years ago, I cut some cardboard in the shape of an AR and experimented with different base colors and different items such as gravel, twigs, leaves, etc.  I learned that with a dark base, it was very hard to lighten it up.  I also learned that the pine straw gave me the best "random" variations although the gravel placed here and there looked pretty cool...kind of a flectarn type pattern.

Definitely use something else to practice on first. Someone turned in this broken Daisy air rifle to the PD so I used it for my first Pinestraw attempt:

Here's an update of my pinestraw style SPR and its west Texas red dirt and scrub scheme. This was a base of Aervoe Earth Yellow and Sand, with pine needles covered all over the tacky paint, then a top coat of Earth Brown. I finished it off with Earth Red through a mesh bag to fill in some red to match west Texas red dirt:

Hehe, mission accomplished

Around 4:30 from the dark thick fencepost near the center of the pic. It's along the dropoff/embankment, you'll need to zoom in a bit and try to spot its shadow.

I did another one. It turned out darker than my last one. I guess I shouldn't have rushed and tried to do it on a windy day. Anyway, it still works.

It's an LMT lower with their 2-stage trigger, Daniel Defense M4 barrel shortened so the pinned and welded YHM Phantom brings the OAL to 16-1/4", YHM Customizable Specter Length Forend, YHM front and rear BUIS, duckbill grip, Magpul stubby VFG with the MIAD mount used by drilling and tapping the forend so no extra rails ricks out past the grip, Ace ARFX stock and a TA33R-8 ACOG.





And here's the first AR I did that's posted in this thread somewhere. Looking at them both the colors on this one contrast a little more. I might do a little work and lighten the latest one up a little. Or I might just say "screw it" since the coyotes aren't going to know the difference. You can't tell from this pic but the Krylon is getting pretty beat up, but that's going to happen with use. It's not like we are baking on Cerakote. Speaking of Cerakote, I bought a Mossy 500 off the bargain rack at a gunshop years ago. Since I have a few safes full of shotguns I chopped it down to 18-1/4", drilled and tapped it for a big brass bead and installed a Hogue pistol grip and forend. I got it with almost no finish left so I had my gunsmith friend beadblast it and Cerakote it khaki. I'm going to camo it with Krylon over that. Anyway, back to the first AR I did. Which one do you guys think came out better?

couple more don't remember the colors they are the cheap ass camo kit ones you get anywhere.  The green on the noveske looked like baby shit for the root pass and that made me nervous so I just cracked another beer and kept going.  turned out ok.  I run over them with clear coat that is matte after they broom bristles are off looks like it is holding them together ok.

13.7 cool little gun.


Would you do it again? Or would you stick with 14.5 and throw a comp/brake on it in future builds?
I've been thinking about doing the 13.7 + 249F
