Thanks for the compliments, guys....I used I think three coats of green and two coats of poly - the top coat applied from about a foot away to give a slight pebbling effect, which unfortunately can't be seen in the picture. http://www.fnfal.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Now we need someone from the southwest to
do one in Desert Tan, possibly with primer red contrasts(camo).

Steven asks: "How does the paint hold up to solvent?" Sorry it took so long for me to answer. It holds up very well to every solvent I tried: Accubore, Hoppes 9, etc. I have several guns that use a polyurethane finish, mostly wood stocked rifles, and I haven't had any trouble at all. http://www.fnfal.com/forums/cool.gif
