My sixteen year old daughter wants a full camouflage rifle. I need camo on the stock, rifle, scope..everything. Who does this or can it be done with some of the stuff from Brownell's? Thank you, Mike

Like many gun finishes, if it's applied sloppy, it will look sloppy/crappy. I would hate to cover up a decent blue job with a dull paint or a "dip", but then again I like steel and wood guns. Guns used to be precision, finely machined/fitted tools, now many are plastic, mass produced machines that shoot a bullet downrange and little else. No soul......

I've done the tape on my waterfowl guns before. Works, but it's ugly. mtmuley

....and wrap the barrel with camo tape...

That thought makes me cringe and prolly would look very crappy, at least in my mind.

I cringe when I think of painting a blued rifle action/barrel, but that's just me (life long machinist mechanic). I would either paint the stock (or purchase an already camo'ed synthetic stock) and wrap the barrel with camo tape...

I saw that they weren't taking orders. They must be very popular.

They have some very nice looking patterns at Camo Solutions.

BUT, the website says they are not taking any orders due to their heavy workload.

I guess when you're good, every one wants some.

That looks really good. I am thinking I might ruin a good rifle doing it myself and the custom guys aren't cheap. The rifle she saw was at an NRA banquet. It was a W
Savage with the mounted scope and all camoed. I may look for one of those. I see lots of camo stocks,a few camoed complete rifles so I may look into to one of those. Personally, I feel more attracted to wood but my plastic guns have served very well. Thanks for that info, mtmuley.

Hockeynick, I love, LOVE, LOVE that wood pattern on the buttstock! It's always appealed to me, though I've yet to own a firearm with it. Someday, though.

Had a complete shotgun done by these guys )except for the stock, that's a Boyd's Pioneer camo laminate) about 10 years ago. Phenomenal job and very customer friendly. They will pretty much hydro-dip anything. Be aware of the disclaimer on the scopes, some of them do not handle being dipped too well.

mtmuley Posted - Jul 09 2017 : 09:03:10 Sounds like hydro dipping will be your best bet. There are also kits available to do it yourself. Or you could try your hand wth spray paint. Krylon Fusion is good stuff. mtmuley
