Yay I just got done with painting my longshot. It just has some basic AR removal, and I attatched the bolt sled to the jam door with stick-em, so everytime I pull the bolt back, the little door opens like a real rifle would. PICS!!

I used Rust-oleum Deep Forest Green Camo Paint, some Testors model paint (Handle, in back of handle, silver bi-pod), and Testors spray paint (Barrel, bolt handle). Opinions please.

Yeah. Barrel replacement! How simple and easy on the longshot!

On a more serious note.
I like the paint job, How long do you think before the paint starts wearing on the priming handle?

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

I tried barrel replacement by putting copper (only one I could get) in the original barrel, and it didn't work. I just pulled it out with some pliers. I don't think the camo papint will wear too soon, since a I put a matte sealer on it and it has seemed to help.

Pretty nice paintjob. Way better than what I can do. Though I think it has too much of the camo green. But I do like the silver/camo green on the bipod and handle a lot. And the jam door looks nice and stands out against the camo green it's surrounded by.

Also, is that clip painted? If it is, have you had any problems with it sticking or messing up in any way?

Yes I painted the upper portion of the clip black but left the rest yellow. So when it sticks out of the gun, it's still yellow. I also painted the part that pushes the darts up silver. So far I have not had any problems with sticking. Maybe just the stock a little bit.

Very nice paintjob! Love the green on it. The colors really complement each other. Keep up the good work!

Very very nice paint job!! No disrespect or anything, but to me it looks like a dull grey(which I like a lot). But very very nice job! :D

Yeah the pics make it a little darker than it is. And no I didn't use primer or sand it.
