well i tried to camo an old rifle i had. i used some flat paints it came oout ok. i really didnt try to hard to make it look good mostly wanted to see how it would work. didnt come out to bad. i think it would come out nice if i take my time. just not sure how long it would last and that is the part that concerns me. for now i have a camo sock it does the job but i am not totaly happy with it bt will do for now

:) He added a second coat and the results are very nice. A nice flat black barrel with the Choate green stock overlayed with some black splotches. No shooting yet... re-roofing the garage.

:!: YES :!: Got the lad and the painted .300 Winmag to the range Saturday. The rifle gave 1 :) MOA groups with a 180 grain and a 200 grain bullet. And the paint didn't come off the barrel. Hate to admit it, but the rifle does look pretty sharp...in a nonconventional, Hollywood fashion. Those thirty-something youngsters think it's "way cool, Dude!"

Geesh.... why would you do that to a perfectly fine looking Marlin Model 60?? The original shots look like it had fine wood on it and good blueing. I really don't see the need for camo rifles... I've never had any game animal spooked by my rifle. I hunt squirrels with a Marlin 60 that has a shiny stainless barrel on it and a silver scope and it hasn't caused any problems.

Why in the world camo a rifle? If you want to hide the thing wrap it in some burlap. Maybe wrap some string around it to hold the burlap on. Then you can fix it so that you can still see throught the sights, and work the action.

When I was a grunt a decade or more ago, we used to wrap our M-16's with some fabric to camo the piece. Works fine.
