    Default Durabilaty tast

    Hey vince, I don't know how it will hold up I just painted it last night. My oldest son and I are going out this morning to start wearing that paint off. I'll keep you posted on how it holds up.

    why not spray it over good with a clear flat polyurethane? Wouldnt that work as a protective layer and an "external" adhesive?
    Great job btw, looks pretty cool...

    Default clear coat

    Thanks northern, I've got the shooter in the shop right now with three coats of clear on it drying! I just had to take it out once this morning and try it out before I finished it! No luck calling though, got to get my boy a quieter coat!!

    Mines spray painted also. Holds up well enough, even after beating the crap out of it running all over the place. Critters don't seem to care if there are a few scratches on it!

    Default Nice Job!!

    Nice looking paint job aksnowshoe. I painted my old 243 last winter in a similar fashion and it held up good. I also applied a few layers of clear coat, which seemed to do the trick.

    Default clear coat

    I noticed this morning after putting the clear on last night that it seems to have darkened the whole paint job up quite a bit. It also kind of sharpened the patterns up. It still looks good though.

    Talking The abominable

    A buddy and I have been working on our new pair of Savage 12's. Here's mine after painting with Zolatone. I'm pretty pumped about the look. Still some details to work on, just got the rings and bases today, so there'll be more white on it before long. Planning on gauze & tape on the barrel and some of the other black parts.

    Default White Sling

    I looked everywhere for a white sling. None on ebay or anywhere locally. None of the catalog companies had it. I was in Chicago not long ago and found one in the Bass Pro Shops store - almost bought two, but I was already over my allowance . I don't see it in their online catalog either though. When I get a chance I'll pull the package back out and post the manufacturer and item #. Probably be able to get some results from Google with those.

    Thanks for the kind words - I'm pretty happy with it!

    The white slings are called, Quake/Claw rifle slings. Cabela's sells them in the Snow Camo, which is all white. I have several of them and they are the best I've found for staying on my back on a snowmachine.
