I am looking for a non-sticky camo wrap. Back in the 90's i used a camo wrap that is like the self retaining, scrunchie, ace athletic wraps. Does anyone know of any wrap that is similar? I dont want adheasive all over my gun. Besides, as hot as it is, the sticky wraps lose grip because of the heat when i am yote hunting.

I guess i could get a gun sock. Cut it in 2, slide the 2 pieces from each end.....

What do you do?

Google camo gun wrap. Cabelas has it pretty cheap and the stuff works pretty well. No adhesive, camos the gun,non permanent, and gives an extra layer of protection. The only negative I've found us in very heavy brush,I mean way heavy,it will catch some snags if you aren't careful.

If you are looking for something a bit different and not expensive, Look on YouTube, type in, "Making a Ghillie suit". By GhllieArnhem. It is a 9 part video. He makes a gun wrap using elastic cord and material quickly installed and removed on any gun . I think it is part 5. lots of info. Just my 2 cents. I have used a camo tape, The kind that doctors and athletes use to wrap ankles and such. it is not sticky and not that durable but adheres to itself well. it sells for about $10 for a small roll here in Nevada.

The stuff you are asking about is the best stuff ever made for doing a camo job on a rifle without painting it. I've been using it for years and it's awesome. Have fun out there!

The name brand of the first stuff I ever saw was "McNett Camo Form", now there are lots of comparable items out there.

I had some cammo tape I got in the early 90's when I got my first upgraded 10/22; put it on everything- wood stock, barrel, scope- took
it off 15 years later without much hassel. The minor amount of residue cleaned off quickly with GooGone (or even WD 40). It was very
tough stuff.

May do another gun up pretty soon,,,,,

I had a problem camouflaging my M&P Ar so I i solved the problem by getting a R-15.

Try the local farm store. Ask for Vet wrap. I get white with gray for snow camo and they carry a green/ black/brown.

If I remember right it was under 3 bucks a roll and it doesent take a full roll to do a Varmit rifle.

I got some of this stuff and its awsome! it is reuseable, and somewhat spongy will not retain moisture and you can cut it to fit. there is some camo tape on there too but I will not use that again it left a little residue on the gun that I didn't like.
this is the McNett digicam, I got it for like 10 bucks for 3 rolls!

I used McNett's to black out my RRA bull barrel. It is holding up well so far and has not melted after several range trips.

This is really red neck, but what I did was take a pair of old cammo sweat pants and some black tape. Here's a pic.http://i776.photobucket.com/albums/yy44/rodinator1234/Coyote8-28-10-1.jpg

I may try a home-brew camo wrap this year using rolls of Coban-type self-sticking medical wrap, commonly available at Walmart and such.

If it works well, I'll post a thread on it with photos.

The camo tape I used is the remington stuff from wal mart. It seems to stick well, and doesn't leave a film. I think I'm gonna take off the cloth wrap and just tape it all.

I just did my mossy 835 barrel with that; gotta pick up a few more rolls before they stop selling all their huntin' stuff
for the year.
