Old gun make over

Old gun make over

Unread postby Bones » Mon Jan 11, 2016 4:57 pm

Gave my 12 year old 935 a make over
I was scared at first but I said what the hell if I screw it up I'll have to buy a new one
It's the camo spray paint method and lots of clear coat.
I know it won't last forever but maybe a few years hopefully.
Where the trigger is that's the original camo that's sun bleach I was scared to do to that part.
Used bush branches for the pattern and pine needles.
Let me know what you all think.

Looks good but be careful with the shiny finish if you plan on using for turkeys. Had the same problem a couple years ago. Looked like a light saber when the sun hit my gun. Had to dull it down and make a flat finish

Yeah meat I used flat paint and flat clear coat but it did come out a little shiny on synthetic stock
Maybe after a few days of drying it will tone down a bit.

I think it looks GOOD. 8-) 8-) 8-) 8-) I'm going to be doing that to a few of mine this season.

I don't think you'll have much reflection issues with the clear, It's not like the shinny metal barrels. :) Just don't wax it like a car. :lol:
