It looks great. What do you mean by milspec spray paint. Is that the standard issue camo paint that we kept in the paint locker behind the barracks?

Good job! Much better than most of the fashion over funtion "proffessional" jobs displayed here recently.

Your camo correctly used large blotches of color to break up the outline of the rifle. Next time consider doing it with a mag inserted in the mag well of the stock.
