Here is my recent work for my dad who is a SFC in the Army retired. I am really mad because the paint turned out the best I have ever done but the clear coat rippled up the paint. So now it looks like a wrinkled shirt. I rubbed some of it down but it still looks ok-ish. I am so mad though. I did get 5 cans free from the company because their paint messed up. It took me three days to do this job. I grounded off the raised lettering polished the internals and the obvious paintjob. I am not done with it yet though. I need to get the stock and mag kit for this one.

The pattern looks good. I think one more color like brown would have looked better. Good job!

It looks cool to me. I'm assuming that's a grey color & not grey-purplish likes it seems in the pics on my screen. Even if it is it still looks cool. I like the choice to reverse the colors on the foregrip, nice little touch of detail. Except you left out the grey digi on it.

That's too bad about the clear coat. My experience from painting my marker was that mixing brands of paint can give less than good results. If I were you I would have stayed in the Rustoleum family for everything from primer thru clear coat - or went w/ Krylon. In the end though, I don't imagine you can even see the wrinkles from more than a foot away, so no real harm there.

Props to you for doing this for your Dad!

Yeah my dad loves it. The three colors i matched as close as I could to his ARMY ACU colors. There is only 3 colors in that and I had to mix brands to get the right colors, I went to a few different places to find the right ones. The issue with the foregrip is that it is coming off. I am getting the mag kit for it like mine. Thanks guys.

Use Krylon Camo paints from Walmart. They have almost all camo colors. Cheap and work great. Try let the paint dry for like three days before doing clear coat next time.

if you dont clear coat it, then the paint has places to start to chip off. most paint needs to be one solid coat to not chip off. i think duracoat doesn't but im not sure. any ways, thats a nice paintjob

Krylon has held up very well for me - with & without clear coat. The few chips have come from edges where the paint stopped (screw holes, etc.) One chip is in the middle of the body, the only part that has clear coat, it came from dropping it on my work table, oops. I have some scratches but that just adds to the effect of the camo IMO.
