Im seeing alot of M4s, etc with desert camo paint jobs with the troops in Iraq. What type of paint do the troops use? is there a special paint for doing that?

Do the troops do their own paint jobs or are they custom paint jobs by pros?

These guys use whatever they can get their hands on.Remember the rifle that they are using is Uncle Sams M4.As long as it runs perfect these guys don't give a shit about pretty.

I know of a guy who used a special brand of Krylon-it's actually called "camoflauge extra-flat" and it comes in several colors-tan, green, grey, etc. He did it himself, and it looked so good, that almost everyone in his unit did the same!!!

WalMart sells the Krylon brand camo paint, and it can be removed, I removed some today on my project lower using a spray can of brake cleaner.

Here is my M4gery sportin' Krylon.

Is there a need to dismantle the rifle to paint individual parts or leave it whole and go apeshit ?
