I paint all my ARs and some of my hunting rifle. I use a couple stencils from walmart and a laundry bag.

Certainly not pretty, especially as some have been touched up numerous times. Like Rhino said...not a huge amount of prep, tape a few things and wipe it down with alcohol.

Holds up fairly well and costs a couple bucks too touch up.



I will post some pics later this morning

Just for the people that can’t adapt. Nice catch.

I painted a shotgun with rattle can paint and then a coat of clear polyurethane. I’ve used it every hunting season for 12yrs and it barely has any wear. That poly coat makes all the difference.

All of my selectors are on 'that' side! Wink

Spray or brush poly coat? Got a link to what you used or recommend? Did it make it shine?

Use spray on poly. Flat or satin. I prefer satin, it's not really shiny and the flat is just too dull for me. Any of the brands like minwax are good, there should be a few choices at lowes or home depot. Build it up with multiple thin coats and don't be afraid to use the whole can. Many guitars have a poly finish and it just about takes a jackhammer to get it off, its tough stuff.

Why not? I’ve done a few over the years and they seem to wear just fine

It certainly helps them blend...
