This is my first paintjob on my only gun. I tried to make it look pretty but just ended up f***ing it up, so i got mad and took a sander to it while the paint was still semi-wet. The result is what happens when you take four layers of paint, use friction and heat to fuse them together, and then sand it down some more with two sheets of sandpaper.
I've been told it looks like wood, and I can definitely see what they mean. The texture is actually quite smooth and comfortable, a nice medium between slickness and grippines (I used textured white paint, black satin, orange gloss, and a couple layers of matte finish. I really don't know why). I used an orange paint-pen for the text.
In the end, it's really not ideal for stealth, but I wound up really liking the way it looks and feels.
and yes, that's hockey tape on the tip of the barrell
