ARS Paint kit

I picked up a Rhodesian baby poop paint kit from Arizona Response Systems last week so i could paint my riFal.

The kit is real easy to use and comes with everything you need to paint your rifle, it comes with two cans of paint, one baby poop yellow and one green, it also comes with two 1" brushes.

I know they were supposed to avoid the muzzle device and sight bases, did they also tend to avoid the carry handle? At least on the ones they didnt clip off. I ask cause I'm about to do mine.

there's going to be a blank area to allow lock lever and selector to move freely. Muzzle device so grenades will fit.
sights so they can adjust

carry handle - I have one photo - the teen wearing only short shorts - and his long handle is not painted.

Also, the guys in the bed of the armored truck, one has a non-camo short carry handle

looks great.

just occurred to me, maybe the baby poop camo is where the designers of the warrior bugs in the movie Starship Troopers got their idea for how to color their alien bugs

From someone who was there, the following were not painted under pain of a severe thrashing by an NCO: Front, rear, and grenade sights; RA serial number on right side of the lower; magazine release; bolt carrier; gas regulator, trigger, buttpad; muzzle device.

Of course, some slight variance is to be expected, and they weren't exactly precise when applying the paints.

Just depends how much your superior officer likes you, or not.

Mark I am glad you are able to pick up where the market left off.

I enjoyed doing it for as long as I could but costs started to over run the actual price.

Product looks awesome

I use the same that I sell. One coat. Let dry well. Scuff with a green kitchen scratchy pad to tone down the gloss. Scuff with #320-#400 sandpaper for actual wear. Hit bare metal with bleach and rinse if you want a light rust patina to the bare metal.
