  2. Hmmm, well I tend to go for either really nicely-finished, natural wood OR all black synthetic stocks. Camo stocks are not my style but I think this is going to be a personal call Tommy. If you like it, then keep it that way...after all...its YOUR gun.

    Personally...if the wood is just crummy looking no matter what you do with it, I would go for a durable flat black finish OR a whole new set of furniture but take my comments with a grain of salt and keep in mind the fact that my name IS Cranky-Kraut!

    i was thinkin the same thing when i put the flat black base coat. i found it looked real nice like that just plain flat black. thanks for the opinion. it might just end up flat black

    I think that is an excellent paint job and if that is what you want, go for it! It is always nice to have a gun that is different than everybody else's. I personaaly think it looks cool. But if it were mine, I am a Flat black kinda guy. But, again, that's a great paint job! It all bowls down to what makes you happy. Good Shooting!

    I like the concept albeit a bit shiny.
     
  6. I think it's whatever flicks yer bic.

    I personally like the flat black idea.....but I DO like yours, too.

    I would try coating it with a flat spar varnish to see if you can get some shine off it....if, in fact, you want the shine off. Otherwise, leave as it is....it's yours.....it's unique.

    Nice job!
     
  7. looks pretty cool to me. I painted mine flat olive drap & looks good to me.

    Looking good,Tommy,looking good! I like natural wood,but as paint jobs go....looking good!:nod: :nod: :nod: :cool:
     
  13. I am with Klaus do the mag, but not on the receiver end. No sense in paint scraping off. The mag would balance out the rest of the rifle.

    Looks great, Tommy. Hope it works out for you.
    As a side note, my wife would have some serious problems with me being in the bathroom with my SAR.....

    i think it should be a part of everyones bathroom. you know the toiletries like hand soap/ toilet paper/ shampoo/ toothpaste. mouth wash and you'r choice of assault weapon. just some thing to help ease the tension while doin you'r thing. you never know when something is goin to happen.lol.

    Wooooow Extremely Rad. Mine has a Choate Dragunov Stock Set which is made from polimer and if I paint it, it'll peel off.
    I like your paint job a lot.
    I saw some website with stock sets made out of polimer and with different paint jobs (like 20 or 30), if I find it again I'll let you know.
    As for guns in the bathroom, I keep my moss 590 by the toilet, just kiddin, keep up the good work and post if you paint the mag.
    Maybe you can make some money customizing wood stocks.
