    If you are going to be doing basic black, consider brake caliper paint. I have used it on several guns. Pics of a couple are below.

    Several light coats, then bake in the oven at 200 degrees for at least two hours to cure it. Brake caliper paint is designed to withstand brake fluid when properly applied, so Hoppes should present no problem.

    Oh, and it is very inexpensive and is easily found at any Autozone or Oreillys.

    That looks awesome! Ha, and here all along I though I was the only person crazy enough to paint my rifles (I have painted two over the years and they are holding up fine so far - they are both lower end AR's that get tossed around when I am traveling out of town). I didn't use any clear coat on mine, just flat rustoleum camo paint, it's extremely easy to touch up after dragging it around and nicking it up.

    that's very cool. I never thought about painting the scope and barrel back then. My 12 yr old son cut the stencils and chose the color theme.
    I also have a set of walnut stocks for that old Springfield.

    That's a good idea to just make your own, I probably should of done the same, but I got the idea when I saw some camo stencils on amazon for $5. It came with a digital pattern and then a forest pattern camo stencil. So I bought the set and used one on each rifle. I used khacki on the bottom one as the base coat and a light green on the top one for the base coat. If you lay them in the grass behind my house they both really do blend in well, especially the one with the green base coat.
