new paint/nevada winter camo

I painted another rifle today and some of ya'll wanted to see it from start to finish. I did this Ruger 77 22 mag in a Nv style of desert camo. I like to hunt around Ely and a few places north of there. And I think this color will match pretty good.
Thnx for Looking

I put 4 layers of clear cote on top of the finish. It holds up well.

That's one of the better rattle-can jobs I've seen. Very slick.

Here's a few shots of an AK I did a while back.

You know, I was about to sell my Ruger M77 7mm mag, but I think I am going to try this. It looks fantastic!

Have you seen the ranch gate between Ely and Delta UT with dozen of antlers bolted to it? It looks like a tree canopy of antlers.
