I got nothing. Sometimes for whatever reason pics dont come through

I copied this on my 700 ADL in 7mm mag. Didn't quite get the marbleizing spray as even a pattern as I wanted, but it still looks pretty good. Curing clear coat now. I disassembled rifle and taped off what I didn't want painted. I didn't want to add any pressure points to the action or barrel as the rifle shoots better than I can. It has built in pressure points on the muzzle end.

Thanks for the heads up on the marbelizing spray. I just finished up my dove and duck gun, and it looks great.

My duck gun has taken a good bit of beating with no wear issues. I think the clear matte finish does a pretty good job of keeping the paint intact.

Nice jobs,
I did this on my old ruger 10/22 truck/ boat gun. Wood stock was looking rough and barrel had some surface rust. Tan black and brown, followed by some wet sanding and matte clear.
