Aftermarket Camo Finishes??

Somewhere in my vast Internet wandering I stumbled on to a company that can apply brand name camo finishes to guns - like Shadowgrass, Mossy Oak, etc. I thought I bookmarked it. Anyway it was someone well known but surprising because I didn't know they did that kind of work......anyone have a clue who is capable of doing this??? Seeing how almost every shotgun made now comes in a camo finish(es) of some type somebody somewhere has to be doing it. I was thinking it was reasonable too.

See how all the people in the Shotgun are not all in interested in camo finishes on guns I figured the Hunting area would be the best - sorry if I was mistaken.

None of those looked familar but they will definitely work. Thanks for the info.

I would be curious to here from anyone that has had this done. I notice these factory camos want to flake off some.

Kobra,
I've had a Mossberg 9200 and now a Benelli SBE with camo finish, along with countless bows, and never had a dipped camo finish chip off. I'd suggest contacting one of the bow manufacturers like PSE, Browning, Hoyt USA, and see if they'll tell you how their camo is applied, and WHO does it for them. That should get you the name you're looking for. Film dipped camo is very durable and long lasting. I know, I've chunked my bow a few times far enough to cause a problem before. But nothing happened to it. LOL
