Have you ever wanted to paint your AR camo but been scared? No way you could have been more nervous than I was. Well, my friend Hawkeye did one of his and finally gave me enough courage to at least have him do mine. Check out this thread and let it give you the confidence it gave me. I love mine!!!

I'd love to see an ar-15 painted in urban camo. Great job guys, I've been pondering the same thing. I'm just curious how it's going to hold up. By the way, did ya'all disassemble your ARs then paint or just paint?

We took the optic and bi-pod off, but painted the rest as is. Then painted the optic and bipod and added the tan. This gun is not meant to be lightweight. I have a lightweight gun that is probably close to a pound lighter than the one you are sportin! This gun is just under 10 pounds and is designed to make quick, accurate shots while being maneuverable and compact. I have a spare upper with a fluted barrel and could have easily used it for this job, but actually wanted the extra weight for this project.

new-guy. well it looks great. Did you have any problems with paint binding up or coming off at the safety or any other place that pivots?

So whats the concensus? Large blotchy patterns or small flectare/marpat type camo? I hear large blotchy type conceal better.
