Myself and hide member PD721el made a barter deal here and his part of our barter was some fresh paint on his rifle. I got my part of the barter done and here are the results. I really like this particular pattern. It is simple and clean yet quite effective. The OD Green barreled action on this sets it off pretty good. If Eric likes it as much as I do then he is going to like it a LOT.

Looks great, how did you do it? I want to paint mine, but I'm not sure how I want to do it. I'm nervous about it looking like crap.

Real nice! Is there a bit of brown in the stock as well? What three colors were used on the stock?

I think it look great, and was done very quickly! +1000 for ARP. The gun is a trued 700 sa, a #3 Broughton 8 twist in 260REM. It has a fluted bolt and barrel and a HS sporter stock. Work was done by a friend.

Re: PD721el New rifle paint

Very attractive pattern and you did a great job. Did you make your own stencils or did you buy them?

Just out of curiosity, what are you getting in return?

Re: PD721el New rifle paint

I cut my own stencils whenever I need them. I traded this for a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses. I sort of have a sunglass fetish hahahaha. Heck I am always open to the barter system if folks have something that I could use.
