I never intended to make it into a MultiCam-ish paint job, but that's what happened. I used Krylon's Fusion Camouflage Khaki as a primer coat and then laid down a Rustoleum Satin Dark Taupe (closest to FDE I could find) base color. Then I added Krylon's Fusion Camouflage OD and Dark Brown with Khaki highlights. Several times I needed to go back & forth between 2 or more colors to keep the blends looking natural. I painted this gun to match the foliage in South Texas based on a plethora of pictures provided and some experience hunting down there. Contrary to popular belief, it's actually quite green.

Well the red dosn't do anything but is just there for looks. But it dosen't get me spotted like everyone thinks. I have fielded it in multiple events and it works. I just recently added the tan and green and before that when it was just the red I was able to hide and conceal myself so the color scheme is not getting me shot.
I can admit it is an unorthodox paintjob but I wanted it to be out of the ordinary. So it is an apocalypse styled rifle and it actually works out pretty well.
It's your gun though so to each their own, but in my opinion that thing is hideous.
I know. I'm getting a new and better rifle soon so I decided to go crazy with this gun. It has been my tinker rifle and has been a learning experience. It is a dead-end so I'm getting a whole new gas sniper rifle setup and I will not be doing any crazy paint-jobs. Maybe I'll stencil a tag in but for camo I will be going for a gun wrap instead.
But my pictures don't do it justice, it actually looks pretty cool in person.
Anyway, lets stop talking about my rifle because this thread is about pictures and not about getting hung up on one post.
