    Painted .308

    So when my brother went out hunting with it he never cleaned it properly and I saw it this morning with rust on it and so on so I stripped it down and was going to reblue but painted it instead, not sure if it'll last long but means I get to change it's looks over time. I think it looks alright brother likes it dads not too sure about.

    I took a bit off the stock to stop it touching too.

    looks all good, maybe do another layer with a lighter or different shade green to break it up more?

    You painted it in the stock?

    Can't say i have ever painted a rifle but thought the obvious would be to paint them separately, what stops it rusting like all Hell under the stock?
