    I would have a few bolts/springs left over if I had to take a rifle apart and put it back together like this guy let alone the paint jod.

    I hope he will tie a string to himself and his pump, if not he will lose it in the grass.

    Looks great, but just a question - if the guy cleans the rifle using solvents or oil based cleaners, will the finish not be damaged?? Wouldn't want all that artwork to get wiped off.

    Hehe, One day...maybe. I did airbrushing for years so doing the real deal like RealTree or Advantage won't be major challenge. I'm still trying to decide what colour palette as I'm hunting from dry grass to green foliage (The old beigey Realtree is still my fav, as I used to slay in bush paintball with it big time). Then again, using ghillie type netting or sisal cloth will do a much better job of breaking up the rifle's contours, and I can chop and change adhoc to suit the conditions if need be.
