Anyone used duracoat much? Im curious how hard it is to apply and how durable it is?

Both of my other planned projects fell through the floor. Im still wanting some kind of a project for this coming year so I think Im going to go get myself another 10/22 or a little bolt action .22 and do a custom paint job.

Not sure if I want to go with the sponge an krylon, or make an attempt at using some duracoat with one of their little stencil kits. The duracoat would be a lot more expensive but would look pretty sweet. I dont want to spend the extra money on duracoat if its not going to be any more durable.

Does it really matter. I would like to see some well designed field tests done to indicate whether or not a camo rifle makes a significant difference. It would also be good to see a field test results on the effectiveness of covering your rifle with a gillie rag vs plain vs camo. I have an inlaid pecan stock with contrasting i8nlays of mesquite and manzanita edged in silver and large turquoise stone accents. I use a homemade gillie stocking/rag of fleece netting and burlap strings with old Christmas garlands woven in. It hides the blingy pimped out rifle well enough for me hide it well. Then I take it to bars after I pull off the rag and pick up tasteless women.

Has anyone found a way to paint the overmolding on a Hogue fore-end (that actually works)? I'm too cheap to swap it out for one without the rubber, plus it's kinda nice in the cold. But black just don't work in the snow!

what do you men do to prep the rifle for painting?

which de-greaser?

do you steel wool any exterior parts (stock, barrel, etc.) prior to painting?

i got the actual painting down, but just wondering about the prep.

I was finally able to get my hands on a new Savage Axis Scoped Package in 22-250, I paid $289. Took it from the Gun store to the Range and had Bulls-eye by the 4th shot as it really was already Bore-Sighted (as Savage claims)and very close out of the box.
The factory trigger-pull however was ridiculous,at 7+lbs it was unacceptable.I started with the trigger spring change mod. which gave me 4 1/2lbs and I finally got the honing stone out and polished some edges till I got a crisp 44 ounce pull.(modified rifle was then subject to numerous safety off-cocked "slam/bump/smack/jar" tests and passed with flying colors.
I started painting with the stock at first and did the rest after I got a Red LED light mounted on the scope.I made a "Halo-Light" shield out of a PVC fitting and used electrical shrink tubing to attach it to the flashlight.The shield really does help and the Red LED gives amazing night vision into the darkness.

Ok so it`s hard to stop once you start, maybe it`s the fumes from the spray cans.

Just repainted my .243 win. I like the sponge style much better.

I got really tired of looking at that ugly black stock on my 257 Wby, Decided to spruce it up a bit. What do you think? Im going to do my 300 Win Mag next.

Did my Marlin model 60 22LR a while back. I didn't have a sponge handy but had some old carpet laying around. Put kind of a woodland camo base and then filled in the spots with rustoleum camo line of spray paint. Sprayed the paint on a paper plate and dabbed the carpet in it. Going to do my Savage 223 when I get a new scope.

You can't kill em' on the couch!
