I just like seeing rifles...AR/M4/M16, M14, M1, it doesn't matter.

Bonus points for spray paint jobs that are showing a lifetime of "love".


I'll try to get my most worn painted rifle outside and contribute. Thanks!

I like it. Especially the faint kryptec.

You should stick these over the Painted Weapons (http://www.weaponevolution.com/forum/showthread.php?5105-Painted-Weapons/page4) too.

Thanks! I try not to bore people with the same pic in two places, so that's why I just left it here.

Oh, and my "Kryptec" can also be referred to as "a laundry bag and some Earth Brown."

Very nice. I can't get an angle I like on mine.


What's the <8> on the front sight post?

I noticed that on both of my FSPs and a third barrel with an FSP I have. I guess a forge mark. All three are Colt parts, so something they must have contracted.

Original paint was done in 2008. Brownells Aluma-Hyde and then Krylon and Aervoe.
