Well I have been doing airbrushing in 1/6th for a few years so I thought I would try it on my AR. I didn't have the balls to do the whole rifle, so I did the stock, foregrip, and rail covers. I used Krylon Camo Spray paint khaki and dark brown.

Looks like a Houge and paint might not last too long on the rubber coating.

Thanks for the compliments!

It is a rubber Hogue grip. The recoil pad is somewhat rubbery, I put a blast of matte sealant on it. I will see how it holds up. I wanted to paint teh grip, but figured it would rub off or get sticky in my hand.

It wasn't a criticism in any way. Looks like you accomplished exactly what you were trying to do, so grats.

No worries, didn't take it as a criticism at all. Merely a suggestion. Which I do agree with. Just worried more about it getting sticky in my hands.

Anyone have experience painting rubber? The spray says it will adhere to plastic fine. I would really like to paint the grip.

Rubber, vinyl, and plastic usually get "painted" with dyes rather than real paint. The reult is not going to be good if the original material is black though.
