Looking for a custom QUALITY paint job for my rifle. Does anyone know who in the LA/OC area is capable of duplicating something like the picture below. Id appreciate the help finding someone guys. Just realized this may belong in the gunsmithing section, mods please move if necessarily.

You can do that in 30 minutes with $25 worth of materials. Not sure why you want to give someone more morey to do the same thing?

I'm just an amature (too cheap to pay a pro) but you can pretty much figure it out.

Paint your base coat on the individual parts then assemble them:

Attach your pattern to the assembled part. In this case it is the backing sold at fabric stores to put under throw rugs to keep them from slipping on hardwood floors (rubber coated string). Anything can be used for a pattern. I spray craft adhesive on one side of the rug backing then stick it to the rifle pressing the adhesive against the paint. I used some string to tie the edges of the backing together along the bottom:

Start spraying whatever colors makes you happy, let it dry and remove the pattern:

Make sure you do all your parts in the same session. I forgot the mag and never could match it.
