Default Do you think I would regret doing this?

I have been wanting to try and paint a bushmaster I have.

Do you think I would regret it?

Paint it with Krylon and if you don't like it take it off. Check out snipershide.com. Alot if those wanna be snipers do it.

So if I use Krylon it can be removed? Did not know that. I want to set this one up for coyote hunting.

Krylon is the way to go, we used it on all of our rifles in our sniper section. As far as it coming off.....I wouldn't want to be the one to have to clean that rifle. Just remember, it's alot easier to make something a little darker than to make it lighter so start out with a light tan or light brown base coat. If done right, it can look just as good as a professional finish.

I also recommend painting individual pieces of the rifle with the base coat first then assembling then doing the darker pattern afterwards. Makes it so there isn't a bunch of straight black lines where tape was.

Do you think what he is shooting at will care about the paint job, would only work in Holloywood for a good camo paint job
