View Full Version : Custom paint jobs

Hey folks just ordered a new savage 93R17 TR and already thinking about a new pain job. Brasky recommended a dark green with black splatter, and I think it'll look amazing.

I'm interested in seeing what custom work you've come up with.

Please share pictures and techniques!

With the right finishes and the right techniques, combined with imagination and some work, you can do just about anything.
This is GunKote, but you could do this with any of the commercially available finishes.

I put moly-resin (gunkote) in the on the weapon and airbrushed duracote on the stock in green, tan and brown.

This is Duracote. I mixed some colors to match the weapon owners jacket.


I can't tell you how I do it or I'll have to kill ya;)
Just take your time and be patient. You'll do fine and it can be fun too. -Jenny

Nice job on gettin the scope too! What'd you do to protect the lenses, just put the caps on or what?

Reebok is that second pic one of those magnum research semi auto 22/17m2?
I wanted a magnum research semi 17m2 but had to resort to a full 17 savage

Sorry KMG5420, I just saw your inquiry.
No, It’s a Ruger 10/22 that my husband integrally suppressed for the client.
