I haven't tried it, but I wouldn't mind dipping a glock in digi camo... 99 seems steep.

My boss-man is starting up a "dippin" business and I don't think he charges too much over the cost of the kit. He went through a week long school and has all the goodies to do it right. I think the kits would be a pain and probably easy to screw up. If you get it and do it, document it and let us know how it goes....I'll check w/ my boss-man and see ifin he's ready fer me to throw out some advertising fer him!!!!

I have seen tim (baywatch) dip some things and have talked to others that have done it you need a water tank and the water at the right temp.Also it not just the dipping you need to coat it with something to protect the dipping after you are done.

I can't paint, I know I would screw this up. I keep waiting for someone to start doing it at a decent price (Not say there isn't someone already out there doing that, just not found them) and does not have a long wait.

The only issue with dipping is it is NOT durable. Even the factory camo guns that are coated using this process look like crap within a couple seasons of hard use. And for only a few bucks more you can get a Cerra Kote finish that will out live you.

The camo looks good, but the game never know the difference....

Yes we have used several of their kits with good success. I would suggest practicing on some smaller scrap items, but once you get the hang of it, it looks like a pro did it...

I tried it on some antlers one time and kit worked fine but like anything I didn't know the small things to look for like it won't wrap all the aroung something round.
