I did this as a desert camo pattern. Blended in really well with the pebbles and sand when you set the gun on the ground.

This one was another style I was messing around with. Would work in the desert or woodlands.

Folks, given the interest in the ghillie cover thingie, I'll be doing a series on how to make one, with pics, and posting it in DIY after I get back from vacation. I'll give you a heads-up in this thread.

Rays, don't worry about jacking up your rifle. Brake cleaner can take it off with ease. Or you can paint over whatever you don't like.

That looks really good! Glad you felt inspired. The paint job puts a working man feel to the rifle. Purpose built.

I have a Tavor that I've wanted to get hydro-dipped. If I had the guts I'd paint it myself. Some of these look great.

I have a large collection of spray paints matching potential environmental colors for my location. Pattern is mostly just random blotches but I work as I go to break up outlines and depth. They generally stay in a green heavy summer palette though I can change them with about an hour of time to dry to suite any environment. I touch it up if it makes it a year without a repaint.

The thing to me is just how far off of the background colors most people are with their camo, and especially the commercial ones. Take a picture of a forest in summer and it's going to be one giant pallet of bright greens, but the camo is usually dominated by brown and dark green which doesn't blend at all with the bright greens in the environment. CADPAT is the only one I can think of that really has bright greens at all. By fall yellows and browns and all the green stands out like a sore thumb and in winter the yellows and browns dull and the grey shades make their appearance, and anything with a vibrant color catches your eye. Spring you're dealing with a mix of yellows and greens as plants start to come back to life at different rates.

Just throwing in camo that you can't hold up to the current environment and match things exactly shade for shade seems entirely insufficient. Any difference in shade and you simply won't blend appropriately so your only hope is to break silhouette and simply delay your discovery for a few seconds instead of people looking at the environment and simply not being able to pick you out.

While painting or other color applications are good. Don't forget it doesn't change the profile of the weapon and straight linesand the shades they cast are good give aways.

I encourage you to spray paint it and post some pictures. It not only provides rust prevention, but also gives you a slight edge for hunting. Posting photos encourages others to advance. If you have any questions please ask!😊

Paint it red and you can see it but the deer won't.

Some of the best camo I've ever seen was on the back of a whitetail deer. No green there. Often you can see one moving through the woods and then stand still. If you look away for a second and then look back it's often tough to relocate even though you know where it is and you're looking right at it. Not saying that green is useless, just that it's over used in many camo patterns I think. Your point about changing patterns for the season is a good one. I don't get the folks who don't want to "mess up" their rifle by painting it. It's a tool, use it like one. If it's too nice to paint it's too nice to hunt with.

Here is one I did a while ago. Used krylon camo paint, and a mesh laundry bag for the texture. I started with a light base coat (khaki or sand) then did brown, black and green stripes for the pattern.
