Exactly. This part below is no exaggeration. The difference that breaking up the lines can do is amazing.
Not sure what happened to my font here, but it was different when I copied and pasted!
Jon, there is a little box above the reply window that has a "Size" for the size (you want #1), and another box that says "Font" (Arial is default).
If you highlight your entire post then select those, these things won't happen. :image035:
Still waiting for your reply to PM on timeline for Dec.
ETA: here's a 'look-at-me' pic from a while ago with a crappy paint job. I repent for my sins!
That's a C3? I assumed it was an M3. I don't think I've ever even seen one in person. How does it compare?
And thanks by the way for the exposure to the 3x while I was in TX, that was one of the reasons I went ahead and got one.
Thanks, I was pretty happy with it at the time. It blends very well with dead leaves and stuff in the fall.
The rustoleum brown is more purple, and that pissed me off. It was shiny too, especially when I saw it next to Jon's aervoe'd 14.5"
Anybody punch a hole in a can of spray paint so they can use the paint in their airbrush?
I would presume that the propellant is just that, and not required for any chemical reaction in the paint.
If so, how do you store it?
ETA - Never mind. Found it. It's called "Decanting". Now to go by some small glass jars.
FYI - Punching a hole in the can = Bad Plan.
Is there any special prep to get the paint to adhere to the Hogue over molded stocks ? I'm seriously considering trying this on my Rem 700 tactical.
Painted this for a friend a month or two ago. Same guy that owns the 700 from my first post.
Thanks Jon for starting this thread. :35:
I had some SF guys come to class with M4's they had painted with rattle cans. They looked like crap but the camo was effective (just NOT anywhere as good looking as your work). :yup:
So, after that, and then finding this thread I am totally over the baked on coatings at this point.
how about a necro? i notice in Munch's last pic there his suppressor is not painted.
Have you guys ever considered any issues with heat? for example, would putting a coat of high temp stove black on a suppressor first, and then regular paint over it help the heat?
As long as it's not black I don't feel a strong need to paint it. My SF cans have all faded from FDE to brown, tan, etc with great / use. I think they use creakote.
