    Painted Weapons Picture Thread

    Haha, thanks guys. I don't really follow any guide/patterns...I mostly work off of from my numerous experiences of painting. I guess I don't really think too much of it, I just go for it.

    Haha, thanks. Actually, the bulk of it took about 20 or so minutes (with drying). The rest was just painting the other parts that would go on later.

    Haha, thanks. I do get the "what the..." look from some people, but that usually passes when they start asking how I painted it. I know your sentiment regarding keeping the original finish...but I figured it wouldn't be too bad for my AR since I only used Krylon. I could always remove it later if need be. Likewise, although this sounds counter-intuitive, the Krylon on there helps protect the original adonized finish a little bit from scratches, etc. And as I said before, the paint can be removed with acetone later.

    DELTA, Awesome awesome work with the FALs!! Perhaps one of the best ones I've seen to date that are painted. Haha, thanks. 80% of AR15s out there are black/gray. I wanted mine to be a little different, so the decision was fairly easy. As for changing anything else, I'm going to keep it like this for now. The only think I changed were the stock ribbed foregrip with my KAC RAS. In the future, I may get a Milspec buffer tube and get a LMT SOPMOD stock. But that's still a far way off, as the current RRA 6 pos stock is more than enough than what I need. As for more pictures:

    Haha, thanks. I was a bit hesitant at first...since this cost much much more than my AEG, but nothing was going to stop me from painting it. Once I started, it felt just like painting an AEG, lol. Don't feel bad...I've been called crazy (and other worse things) when I decided to paint my AR. If you do want to paint your AEG, practice on something else first.

    After painting for years on my M4 AEG, I took it a step further up today and finally painted my AR15: I guess after painting my AEG so many times, painting the real deal felt 'normal.'

    That is super nice. I like the authentic look. Reminds me of pictures of Norwegian SOF guys in A-stan a few years back. They have the identical setup on their G3s...except for the addition of Aimpoints.

    Awesome work Pete, but is the magazine inserted upside?

    I pointed out in my earlier posts that the older AP has a faulty brightness knob. That'll be the last time I ever buy optics that I don't know the brand to. The new one's a G&P...and I hope it won't ###### out on me either.

    Beautiful M14 LordSex. The worn look definitely looks like it's been used in the sandbox indeed. My new AP came in today...and I painted it shortly after. Edit: I've received a few PMs regarding how I achieved the pattern, so I'll do a quick how-to by documenting the progress of painting the new AP. The goal here, is to make the fresh, new AP look like the one to the right. ---- Finished product on the CQBR When the gun itself has nothing on it, it has a more streamline look to. I think it helps makes the pattern a little more effective. Not much, but just a little more.

    Haha, thanks. Give it a few weeks, and it'll get there. Thanks, this is actually a little more 'adaptive' to a wider range of environments than my previous works. Billy Bob, that ACOG tops off the M4 perfectly. Is the gun wired to the back, or do you have a PEQ in the works?

    Painted Weapons Picture Thread

    Haha, thanks! I would say this one's a lot more practical than my previous ones. benplaut, there's some wear settling in after I used it in a skirmish. Give it a few more weeks, and it'll start looking the part, haha. Thanks for the comments. Oh, and a few more...

    Haha, thanks. I sprayed the area with Red Dark Earth color, then dusted it with dark brown and flat black. I then dusted the Red Dark Earth over the the area, with least area dusted being the front muzzle end (for the darker finish up front).

    Woa, nice work for a first at multicam! As for an alternative for Medium brown (since they're so hard to find), you could try Equestrian or Saddle Brown. -- Finished painting my suppressor. I used reference photos to get the burned look at the tip of the suppressor.

    Silenced Guns Picture Thread

    Both guns are sporting my home-made suppressor. I painted it to give it the burnt/heated look. I used reference photos of actual suppressors to help me out this time.

    Painted Weapons Picture Thread

    Haha, yea...I'm not really sure. Doesn't look like the Krylong Camo paints were used for that one. Best bet would be apple green, medium brown, and maybe medium green? I don't see any Olive Drab in that particular paint job, but the lighting could be off.

    The bottom G36C's mostly Krylon Camo Khaki and Dark Brown.

    Haha, much better. Once the natural starts setting in to provide the contrasts, it'll look even better!

    Fin, you have the case of "excellent paint work, but cheap paint-look." Hit it with a coat of Flat clear coat, and it'll be ace!

    Wow....based on the pictures...if it wasn't for the PTW stock on there and the lack of trademarks, I could have been fooled into thinking it was an actual M4A1

    Haha, I see nothing wrong with a gun with mismatched colored parts. It makes it look a little more authentic, haha. See it all the time with troops in the field when they swap optics around different guns.

    Painted Weapons Picture Thread

    Haha, 'almighty' heh? Knowing myself, most likely not, haha. But I love what you did to that M4 with that SIR and Vltor stock....and the paintjob takes the authenticity to the next level. Blackhawk 5, great work for your first run. The stripes were well executed and not as blurred as I see often with first timer painters.

    Now that's one authentic looking paintjob. Good work! My CQBR:
