Since i have a bit of an addiction to painting guns i have tried a couple dif techs. I used a cheap paint bush once and took some sissors and cut some of the bristles out to make it spaced and it turned out pretty cool also. If i was a lil more computer savy i would post some pics for yall. The best thing i figured out was the less you try to make it look "good" the better it turns out looking.

Whats the best way to get the paint to stick to a synthetic stock?
Whats the best way to get It to stick to a stainless barrel?
I just painted two guns with synthetic stocks and the paint is still stuck. I just lightly sanded the whole gun and hit it with a GOOD primer. I sprayed those. I did however sponge my .270 and it has a stainless barrel and it's still holding up after a year of use. I did a light sand on the barrel. I make sure the guns I paint are super clean before applying any paint.
