    While it isn't the perfect answer you are looking for, I do applaud them for not ripping off Caleb Crye like everyone else seems to do.

    Cool. I am wondering if an applied acrylic spray over top would help?

    Also, thoughts on putting the wrapped parts in the oven (at a low temp) to get a better (all around) adhesion??

    It's all good Stick. I am not 100% sold on MC but was just an option I was looking at.
    Love you Pop. F*ck Cancer.

    I think it is easier to just heat the material as it is applied, I'm not sure heating the object would give the same results. However, I'm no expert, and the things I've done have been simply to break up outlines, and not to look nice or be precise.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. Apply the wrap with a heat gun. Then, stick it in the oven for a final (set) as the oven is going to give you a more even heat distribution. Make sense?

    You would need to verify with Kevin, but from what I understand that would not be of any help. It may even be a detriment. HOWEVER, he would have a MUCH better answer than my guesses. Regarding an overspray, he has something like that already which increases durability and grip texture. I don't bother using it personally, though it might be something I do for a grip area if it were something I was going to carry real world.

    I recently put some of this on, and I'm just not too sure about it. It looks great and all, but I just don't have a lot of confidence that it'll stay on. For those of you that have put it on, how's it holding up?

    Quick update with Gunskins applied in OCP over a carbine and a pistol.
