Went to ITTS Sniper I training a couple weeks ago and shot out to 950 yards


Then decided to rattlecan the rifle. I've previously done a couple of AR's so not a stranger to doing this and I don't really have anything I consider a safe queen, all of them are used.

Awesome job! was it just Krylon? I'm thinking of doing something similar. Or did you use something from Brownells?
Thanks for sharing.

I did a rattlecan kryptek pattern but finished it off with clear Brownell’s Alumahyde. As long as your prep work is good to keep the rattlecan paint on the stock it’s pretty durable. Although I used Fusion camo colors.

Iíve never used this Rustoleum Texture paint until now. I was at a Sniper training course run by ITTS recently and one of the rental rifles owned by Uncle Scotty Reitz had this paint and he called it out. Iíve used the Camo line of paints for my ARís which Iíve been pleased.

You may want to add a couple coats of matte clear as a protectant but Iím not looking for a permanently pretty finish myself.

Nicely done! When you prep properly and let things dry it’s amazing how durable spray paint is. It’s not ceracoat, but it’s fun and easy to do. And most of us aren’t running around abusing or even shooting our guns these day! Best part is if you change your mind you can repaint it!

To add to that, some guns, like ARís, look great with that worn spray paint look.

Awesome job.
