I taped the inside of the scope and sprayed a khaki base.

Then I taped some old pieces cut off a broom and alternated olive and a brown.

Then lightly misted khaki over it again and this is the finished product!




..

It's the first one I have ever done and I am pleased with it. Tell me what y'all think!

I used that Krylon Rustoleum that's made to stick to plastic or metal. We will see how long it holds up on this gun which is my truck gun. But I have heard it lasts pretty well.

Looks super sweet. Some you guys have some talent. Maybe one day I'll give it try on one of my rifles.

Thx for sharing!

Thanks guys! I thought I would mess it up too being the first one i have done that's why I did it on my older not expensive gun to see how it worked. But I do like how it turned out!
