I guess these belong here too. I used Aervoe paints, and a mesh bag I've kept since Boot Camp plus some pine needles. Painted her for when I get back to West Texas.

Quick and dirty one... Probably needs a little more green, but it was still fun to do. And yes, I forgot to pull the tape off a few spots before taking the pic.

I did the same thing. I read a bunch of stuff online, listened to people talk about how they degrease, use super-sticky types of paint made just for firearms, and all sorts of nitnoid ways to make patterns. In the end, I just went with Krylon from Walmart and a laundry net. It took about 30 minutes because it was really humid and I'd let it dry for a little longer than it would normally take between layers.

I was nervous at first too, but I practiced on a couple of magazines, first. It turned out to be really easy, and if you screw it up, you can just hit it again with the base coat and start over (or take some paint cleaner and wipe it off, but I didn't need to do that). It serves not actual purpose for my uses, but it was still fun to learn how to do the layers. I always enjoyed watching maintainers at work paint parts of the aircraft and see how they could make some impressive art, so it was fun to try it on my own.

It should look even better after I shoot it and it starts to show wear.

You know I read an article by Stickman over on Arms Collective about 10 Minutes & Ten Dollar Refinishing (http://armscollective.com/ten-minute-ten-dollar-refinishing/). The wife and I are thinking about picking up a pack of Aero Precision blemished receivers. Might have to make that 2 pack a 3 pack and try it out. 1 to SBR, 1 to Pistol Build, and 1 to practice the rattle can refinish on.

Yeah I will use anything as an excuse.

Here's how the rifle looked actually out in Abilene/Tuscola TX

We moved from VA to Austin, so the Earth Red didn't fit in as well. Re-painted the rifles as below. Also swapped from a SOPMOD stock to a CavArms A1:

^^^ Sweet !!!


I have never been into the whole painting thing, but i am also OCD/anal and like to do everything my self...So i have had this Savage MK2 FV-SR sitting new in the plastic for a while and already had a nikon prostaff rimfire 3x9, i scored new for $100 bux and stole the bipod off another gun for now. Along with my $10 DIY kydex cheek riser and $6 for some rattle cans. I like the kyrptec patterns coming out lately so decided to try my hand at it, knowing i would eventually replace the stock for a Boyds most likely.

For now it will work, need to buck up and get a trust/stamp going for a can, but not in the cards right now.

Just got done with the cheek riser yesterday, and am unsure if i am going to paint it,

Sorry I missed this. That surefire mount is a Franken Mount. The tangodown adapter cut in half screwed into the Ops-core arc rail adapter. Its really the only way to mount a surefire on an airframe.
Check out militarymorons.com thread about it.

I just cut some random shapes out of cardboard to use as stencils.

Looks decent and easy to fix when it gets marked up.

Thanks! I've been spending time using it so it'll get that "worn" look...already starting to rub a spot on the stock where my 5 o'clock shadow rubs it like sandpaper, and obviously the selector lever, charging handle, mag release, etc...all the "high use" items.

For use with a different can, I imagine? And that swan sleeve adds a bit of rigidity to it as well as more room to mount the scope for eye relief. That's why Mod 0's are probably my favorite of the Mk12 line.

I know it's not clone specific, but I really would like a Griffin Armament 5.56 SPR can. They are right at 18oz, 3oz lighter than the Ops 12th/AEM5 and you don't need a specially contoured barrel, mount and collar...just index their muzzle device over your existing barrel

Exactly, for a different can. OPS cans, didn't someone else take them over? I remember OPS cans not being that affordable compared to similiar ones. I think back then I was considering that or an AAC SPR on a MITER Mount.

Anyhow, if I wasn't doing a suppressor, I'd get an OPS collar, just to complete the look.

The guy who was making the OPS 12th (and other OPS cans) apparently started his own company when OPS imploded. I haven't bothered to Google why OPS went away, but Ron Allen continued making the same cans under the "Allen Engineering" name. Apparently he got into some business issues with the state of CA, so he moved to NV. The company is alive and well and he's has several different kinds of .22 and .308 cans in production.

Cost for an AEM5 (what the 12th turned into) is around $650. Ask me how I know. <sigh> It's only money, right?

Former11B
16 February 2016, 10:00
Ron Allen who formerly owned Ops Inc operated out of California. Despite .gov contracts (and SureFire operating like mad in CA), I think he ran into issues maintaining a license to manufacture in California...the State would no longer allow him to with no real explanation. I'm not sure what prompted the new name, but he packed up and went to NV and started churning them out again under the Allen Engineering name.

There are still a few Ops Inc cans NIB out there if you want to complete a 100% accurate MK12 clone but they're hard to find. Basically small time dealers that used to carry Ops will come out with one from the dark recesses of a safe every so often.

Ron never owned OP's Inc. He was subcontracted to make certain suppressors for them. California stopped allowing form 3 transfers out of state so Ron moved his suppresor manufacturing out of state. His main location is still Brown's Valley CA.

.

From what I read, they just stopped allowing Ops Inc to transfer cans out of CA. Surefire still did (and still does?) when he was prohibited, being a main contention.

Here's an e-mail from OPS dated 12/2013:

"Sorry for the delay. We have been going through hoops with the ATF with the A&D book, production variance, CA DOJ, and a very confused CA ATF branch. Our lawyers do not know what exactly their end game is, we have complied with every request, had guns taken and then returned later, and fought off every threat they have given to the point that they have nothing left to throw at us. They have held every one of our form 3's but have approved 2 form 5's months after our form 3's were submitted. I honestly have no answer on the time frame because they keep dragging this out and looking for new charges against us that will still not stick. It has been going on since February and it's getting real old at this point. Sorry I cannot get any info about our form 3's, I have a few dealers asking me the same questions and I just don't have the answers at this time. We're trying to figure out where the witch hunt is going and why we're being singled out. They claim that we cannot manufacture suppressors in CA for anyone other than LE and Government. We asked how Surefire has been doing it this whole time along with a few other manufacturers and they haven't answered our emails or phone calls. Other DOJ agents haven't heard this law that apparently has been in effect for over 10 years according to the CA DOJ. Like I said, they keep throwing stones at us and drag out anything they try to have against us for months before they give up and get something new. I don't know of any dealers that have anything in stock other than possibly Duncans guns in North Carolina. I understand if you have to go a different direction, if that is the case I apologize for not being able to get you set in a reasonable time frame. If something new comes up I'll let you know.
Regards,
Daniel "

After researching it, I see Ops is owned by Phil Seeburger, but Ron is the most frequently associated with the company whenever I read about it.

Not an AR, but still a gun part. Still letting the paint dry off, but it looks good. Here's how I get my Multicam:

I used Desert Sand for the cream splotches. For the dark brown splotches, I used Black misted with Earth Brown. Next layer, I used Earth Yellow (misted with Light Green), and Dark Green. Final layer I used Earth Brown, Khaki, and Light Tan. Negative stenciling to generate the patterns (traced from a Multicam rifle case), all paints were from Aervoe's Camo or Digital Camo line.

The SBR had been painted 2014-JUL, and it's been about 2170 rounds later; you can see the wear's not been too bad, most of which has been generated by biathlons.

You two both did a great job. I didn't realize wither was a wrap.
I looked at the wraps a while back and decided if I did, I'd want to paint the rifle first too. Sounded like too much work for my lazy butt.

Walmart has always been the go-to place for me. Lowe's and HD won't always have the matte paints, depending on the store's demographic. Walmart has always had the 3 or 4 different Rustoleum "Camo" branded paints (Sand/FDE, Dark Brown, Forrest, OD Green). Personally, I like the Rustoleum look, or more specifically, how it wears, but I hear plenty of people like the Aervoe, too.
