Well I'm sure most of you have saw my "Multicam Job" LOL well didn't turn out the way I wanted and didn't want to do it again. I wanted it to be a 2 tone color scheme but didn't want the light khaki color. When I was layering doing the multicam job at one point I had my gun completely camo brown and really liked it. Reminded me of the patriot brown Cerakote. So stripped everything down and got to painting. I actually really like the color offset with the black furniture on the gun. Also got my new SWFA SS 1-4x in Larue SPR-E mount very stoked to go shoot that.

Looks great. How did you strip it down? What did you use?

Love that color, looks sweet. What kind of paint did you use? How did you prep the surface?

Thanks

I just used the rustoleum camo brown color. Prep wasn't much just got it down to the regular anodized finish but still had some residue on it that wouldn't come off. Let it dry really good and then use break cleaner to degrease and don't touch it again with your bare hands wear latex gloves without powder. Just tape off the stuff that doesn't need to be painted and plug the barrel with a foam ear plug.

Looks way better man! A great example of "pre-wine vs post-wine!"
