    Default Painted AR's

    Ok,

    Let's get this started here. Lets see your painted AR both solids and camo jobs. Any color. Need some ideas and will have mine to post soon. Waiting to get the front end done. If you got it show it.

    Thanks,

    PS Can never get enough of the black rifle, you know I think I have the disease, help; what is the cure.

    Wow chopper,
    Thats a nice job. I'm doing mine in krylon to. I doing a disruptive pattern, with the different parts. Similar to the pattern that some of the WWII battleships did. Obvisously with todays colors though.
    Thanks

    AR's are really fun to build. they may well be fun to paint!

    i haven't painted any of mine yet. i am playing around with the idea of doing some "desert storm" paint on my cav arms build as it is all ready coyote tan. or i might just paint the damn thing matching black!!

    what kinds of paint will stick to those plastic parts???

    Well,
    That was the issue when I started my build, I did not want to paint anything that would be in my hand or manipulated alot. I could not find anything that would be able to stand up the use. Besides, with all the aftermarket accessories being made in most of the subdued colors who needs to paint them. My build, will get something on here soon; I painted the upper and lower, and some small parts, the rest I either left black or bought the part in the color I wanted. Like I said, more of a disruptive pattern camo than anything else.

    Nice work Chopper! I bet that thing just dissapears in the shadows in the woods. Did you use some kind of stencils or did you just freehand it?
