View Full Version : Logo paint idea

Oh snap, how much of a geek am I?

There's been talk of people taking the logo engravings on their OLLs and filling them in with paint from a syringe? How rediculously gaudy would it be to do it with glow-in-the-dark sight paint? http://store02.prostores.com/servlet/theholsterstore/Categories?category=*NEW*+SIGHT+PAINT

Thats some good camo. Kind of like during WWI and WWII when they started teaching soldiers not to smoke cigarettes at night. The glowing cigarette attached to your head turned out to be a great target at night.

I thought it was illegal to paint the rifles green? There was a previous thread on that somewhere in this forum.:confused:

This isn't a California gun - I snagged these pics from arfcom a while back. Cali law says "bright green", and this one's only bright green when charged and in the dark, so I don't know where that would fall...

Why is it illegal to paint a rifle bright green?

I was down at the local hobby shop--they've got glo acrylic stuff that you can mix with all the standard florescent colors--pink, orange, red, green, yellow, etc.

I'm painting my AR furniture digi camo with subdued sharks teeth on the front. I'm considering mixing glo paint in for the teeth and eyes--you wouldn't be tell it in the daylight.

Basically this, but in desert colors (MARPAT type)

Now the next question: does having 3/4 of the rifle glowing render it any less effective as a self-defense tool at night?

Why is it illegal to paint a rifle bright green?

Replica guns that don't fire anything (airsoft, BBs, etc) have to be bright green, pink, clear, and such to be sold in California, so they don't allow you to paint a real gun so that it'll resemble a toy gun...

Looks like a good idea for night operations... you could really see your rifle well when you are looking for enemies in poor visual condition. *wink wink*
