Well, not really. But there is a picture of it in the December issue of S.W.A.T. For those that have subsctiptions or access, it's the groovy UrbanFlectarn camo on page 78.

I'm so proud.

I wish I could post picture, but the for some reason I can't get Ofoto to post here. Any volunteers?

That's the sweetest urban camo paint job I've ever seen.

I second that one. I saw that and was wondering how they did it so precise, what types of paint. I think I read aircraft paint which is poisonus to breath. This would be the only color scheme I would paint my AR in. It looks great.

The author, Tiger McKee (Shootrite.org), did the paint job. He used a reverse masking technique -- 1. mask off the black, shape with exacto knife, paint remainder dark gray. 2. mask off dark gray, shape with exacto, paint remainder lighter gray., etc. The good thing about this is that whatever color gets scuffed or worn the next darkest color is underneath. He used automotive primers for the three grays. It's fairly durable. Immediately after it was finished, a group of friends went with me to the Thunder Ranch H.I.T. class, so it got scuffed and dirtied some, but the paint didn't come off. If I had it to do over, I would cover it with Testors DullCote before heading off for three days diving in the gravel. For those that are interested, the weapon is as follows: PWA preban lower Bushie A2 upper and 16" pencil barrel Smith Vortex FH Used M16 (A1) buttstock Duckbill grip Standard FC group with A_FreeMan mod

I did a search but nothing came up (this post didn't even come up). So what's the A_FreeMan mod?

Outstanding paint job....best camo pattern I've seen - really breaks up the outline. How did it took to paint it?

Sittin here at work, with the december issue next to the monitor, excellent looking rifle. [:)]

Thanks for the kind comments. I think it took him about a week to paint it. One the first day of the above mentioned class, I wore the UrbanFlectarn T-shirt that was used as a pattern for the rifle. I got some strange looks and comments. I think they were all jealous.
