I have been looking at this forum quite a bit for camo ideas that I can do at home. Thank you all for all the pictures and ideas! This was my first go at doing my own camo, and I was a bit nervous to say the least as I am very particular about my rifles.
So I layed two base coats of Krylon tan camo spraypaint.
Then found a net (from my wifes old Halloween costume... shhh) and layed it over the rifle in a very random way.
Then just dusted over it with Krylon camo brown.

All in all, very happy with the way it came out.

Waiting on my B&C A2 stock next friday then will update pictures of how it turned out!

That looks different. Also why not paint the stock to? From looks it seems to be the Hogue stock if I'm seeing it correct. Maybe its why you didn't paint it?

New stock is on its way :) It is the rubber stock and I hate it!
I figured you did not like that stock and why its not painted hahahaha! Yes they suck and true accuracy can never be achieved with that stock.

As for paint I seen on youtube some dude removing krylon with carburetor cleaner and it was working pretty good.
Now I would assume it also matters on how many coats are on the rifle or stock.

My personal method is a sand blasting unit. Yes not everyone has one but I do and works the best :D

Good old fashioned paint stripper works great too. Especially the new Citrus based gel's. Don't have to open every window in the house to use them either :)

Yes another one I forgot to mention. The citrus stuff really works! But as with any other chemical stuff you don't have to open windows :D

Me personally I still would open a window.
