Talking Shotgun Pics Thread

It's high time we do a shotgun pic thread here..... (hmmm I didn't do a search so there might be one already.) Anyway, show your scatter-guns boys and girls.

Here's mine... (large files)

Mossberg 500 (rattle-can camo job)

Lukas, you should put a picture of the shotty that is on the door to the locker room at Bullseye. It's an 870 isn't it?

Ah, the Vang Comp 870. Have you introduced yourself at Bullseye? I don't remember us meeting.

Nah! No intro necessary. I'm the one who leaves all the drool on the glass case after I'm done viewing all the handguns....

lol, sorry I had to. But seriously, that looks really good. Just spraypaint and a few homemade stencils? My "Pride of China" Norinco 870 knock-off just sits in the closet for HD, I pull it out for a little range practice from time to time but it is by no means a field or clays gun, maybe I oughta camo it up like that just for my own viewing pleasure. How'd you go about making and using the stencils? Hold them over the gun while you paint or did you tape them down?

And since I know someone will rag on me for having a ChiCom870, I gotta say, I didn't buy it new, it was a helluva deal, and to be honest... it shoots very well. I was outshooting a Benelli M1 Super90 with slugs at steel silhouettes. I'd love to say it was the shooter, but after I hit the target 3/3 and the Benelli guy went 0/3 I decided to try with his Benelli and still only went 1/3. (this was @140 yards) Thus it earned the name "Pride of China" from my coworkers. Hmm, sorry for rambling, I'm bored.

Nah if he paints the tube it will wear off fairly quickly with use, and then it will be ugly. He had the right idea leaving the tube untouched.

K I spent $200 buying a mossy 500 that came into the shop used, solely because I thought yours looked pretty sweet and I wanted to do something similar, with my own twist of course. So let's hear a run down of how you went about whatever prep work, type of paint, how you stencil'd the camo? I've never done any duracoat/camo/norrell/spraypaint jobs on a firearm so I'm at a loss other than my semi-educated guesses at how you went about it.

Hey slick_711

I went to this site and got some pointers.

http://www.militarymorons.com/weapons/ar.misc.html

I had to disassemble everything, and take out any oil/lubricant and taped up what I didn't want painted. Copying the stencil, I made my own design from it . I then sprayed my base paint ( which was a gray primer), then let it dry for about an hour and then sprayed the sand color. Depending on how many colors you want for your marpat (I went with just 2 colors) I started putting in the "digital" camo. I went with a light color first (almond), holding the stencil over the shotgun, I then sprayed the whole gun, let dry, and finished with the other color (grey). I stopped once I'm satisfied with the pattern. I had to let it dry at least overnight before re-assembly.

I could have used 3 colors or 4, but I got a bit lazy so I just went with 2 colors, my version of an "urban" camo. Oh and I just used OSH branded rattle cans (flat). The sand color is textured so it was a lot easier for the stenciled pattern to stick to the gun.....I hope that makes sense..It's 1:29am and I'm not thinking straight right now
