Hello all, I have long pondered painting weapons, but i have thought i could not paint black or blued weapons as they need oil and perhaps humidity could penetrate porous paint and cause pitting/rust. Well, i finally have my stainless savage 22-250 varmint gun after MANY valuable recomendations here. With it being stainless and having a composite stock I have wondered... Why not paint it the puke Olive drab I have always wanted?
Have any of you done it? If so, how did it hold up? Is there a certain kind of paint I can order? I have air brush, air painters, etc and assume this type commercial epoxy would be the ticket.
Any insight, advice, etc?

Hi, Superlite, I plan on using a coating on my next project. If you have the patience and time I think duracoat would be the best. I have included a link for you. Good luck. M223 About DuraCoat

If it were my own rifle, CeraKote on the barreled action and optic with DuraCoat (Polane) on the stock.

 

My typing skills are not good. It would take me forever to go over all of the different coatings. Please call me (816) 510-4277. If you get the machine one of the compressors is running and I cant hear the phone.
