    Another Rifle Paint Project

    Just finished up painting this .17 HMR last night. Wish I had before pics, but it was just a blued/ walnut plain Jane model.

    I think I'm the only one that found that to be disturbing.

    Oh hell...I thought you were talking about the paint job on the gun!!!

    Seriously, I guess I'm just an old goat as I prefer the look of a great walnut stock, blued metal and the traditional look of a classic bolt action. My elk rifle is a custom commercial mauser with a ss shilen match barrel and a Bell & Carlson composite stock. It is the only one that I own that is not traditional styling. I love it and it shoots great, but still looks a bit odd to me!!!

    The gift that keeps on giving, eh BSA?

    Nice looking rifle. Did you paint the barreled action or Duracoat it?

    Looks great BSA. Now that you have shown off your work, you have set high standards, we expect nothing less now. Btw, I'll be honest, my attention shifted to that magazine pretty darn quickly. I don't know which looks better, that wicked paint job or that blonde.

    Exactly Bitterroot! LOL

    I just used paint for the barreled action, and it turned out really nice. Not sure how the durability will be though. When I go to do a "big boy" gun I will definitely use Dura or Cerakote. I'd like to experiment with some of that stuff. Thinking about doing my .223 in charcoal gray or olive drab.

    I am working on a Savage 110 project right now, and trying to get the nerve up to Duracoat it.
