The "white" looking parts are actually a light pink. My flash was being mean and making it look hella bright. Anyways, I LOVE the paint job! Thank you Technique! :D

That is so so so so so so SO nice!!! I love it! How did you come up with the design? Did you draw something out? Or see something you wanted to copy? I couldn't see my self just telling someone I wanted pink camo with sculls. You could never be sure how it would come out....but I think that you're pink AR sets the new standard :)

By the way, your scope/red dot looks like it sits very low. Does that mean you can't co-witness? I think yours is expensive but I have been looking at one that looks like that but it is a Primary Arms and MUCH cheaper and I think is mounted a little higher. Anyway, I'm just very jealous right now :drool5:

lol, I don't have iron sights, so it's ok where the red dot sits.
Also, I found a camo pattern I liked and also saw a skull camo gun Technique had already painted in guy camo type colors. So I sent him the camo link, and told him I loved the skulls since they weren't the usual pirate flag skulls and asked him to paint it based on that. Soooo happy!

btw-I still love your AR. So cute and girlie! :)

That's right.

AR's are for the ladies, and AK's are for the men.

Now, I want to see those targets you're gonna destroy ;)

You realize that you have to display your toy at the next gun show, right? You have to placate your fan base - lol

Great job, NorCal!

Very nice. Welcome to the AR lovers club. Eventually you might want to get some sort of irons on there, but no rush. Even Aimpoints fail. Had it happen to me at the start of an AR course. If I didn't already have backup irons I would not have been able to complete the class. That class was sooooo much fun, even with irons. In any case, I like your rifle. Nice job.

Thank you, I love it too! :) Guys make fun of pink guns cause it intimidates them. It's kind of like we're encroaching on "their" territory (shooting and the world of guns) and by having our guns painted pink, it makes it more real and official that we are here to stay! :D
Is your gun the one in your avatar? If so I really like it! Sooo cute!

DEFINITELY getting irons! I frankly prefer them to a red dot. Something no nonsense and simple about iron sights. :)

well said, totally forgot it was only a NorCal thing




the skulls remind me of the skullcandy skulls

That is one truly great pattern on your AR, so if we all agree to give up on BRD and get PRD will they be less scary to the point that we could forgoe the whole BB/AW issue. What if we swapped the skulls for Hello Kitties and Care Bears. Anyways great AR you have and great job Technique.

I saw these pink Hogue rubber grip replacements, they may be more comfortable than the hard plastic.

Nice AR!

Whenever I get one I think I want to get a pink or purple one, but that'll probably be far off in the future.

good job.

the pattern looks more authentic than others ive seen lately. most if not all the other camo ive seen, is all patterned and grouped together wrong. this is almost spot on the old BDU's

I have my wife looked at your AR pix and she loved it. Now I feel sorry for bragging this thread to here cuz she wants one now.
