Painted Weapons Picture Thread

G&P EBR Chassis that I base coated Alumahyde II Dark Earth, then proceeded a week later to camouflage with Krylon Khaki, Olive, and Brown paint from their camouflage line.

 

Enjoy,

Piano.

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.'

Has anyone here ever used Duracoat? If so what do you think about it? I've been thinking about building another upper for my M4, based around a KA LaRue replica 9" RAS and I want FDE accesories, but I'm afraid they won't all match so I want to coat them in Magpul FDE Duracoat so they will.

Nice, you finally did it! And it turned out great!

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.

 

And Im scared to paint my AEG.

 

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.

OR buy a $20 springer, etc and practice on that; that way you get a bit more "realistic practice" *runs in corner, for he hasn't heeded his own advice*.

DELTA, Awesome awesome work with the FALs!! Perhaps one of the best ones I've seen to date that are painted.

 

Souske, I could never bring myself to paint my AR15... You did an awesome job, though :D

 

You going to do anything other cosmetic things to it? New pistol grip, new stock?

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 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.

I just painted the M4, MICH, and a friends AK. I'm pretty proud of it all, first time painting gear/weapons.
