    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.

    Looks like an old Hustler issue. Oh the paint job looks cool!

    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.

    Let me know if you do, I have a few weapons I want to do that to. A 1911 and my 7mm rem mag. Are you thinking bake on or air dry? I would like to try both and might have to, I don't think a barreled action will fit in my oven.

    Air dry standard Duracoat.

    You actually don't need to use your conventional oven. Since it only requires about 120 degrees, lots of guys are making small cinder block boxes and heating with a heat gun. I'll probably go this route when I try the stuff.
