    Really nice looking gun.

    Do you have any tips or good videos or inter webs links for how to do that distressed paint look? I would love to try that on one of my guns.

    There are a few on YouTube. The trick is light coats and you really can’t mess it up. If you want it to look a different way, just add a coat and try again. Watch your re coat times too. Don’t let it sit overnight and think you’ll add a coat in the morning. It will wrinkle. If you need to let it sit, let it sit a whole week to completely cure before adding a coat. I did mine all in one sitting with like 10 min between coats. Distressing as I went and finishing with a couple coats of matte clear

    The paint job in the photo is called "Baby Poop" by the FalFilers. It's the paint job used by the Rhodesians to break up the outline of their rifles. The Rhodies asked the terrs how they'd spot the Rhodesian patrols to lay ambushes. They found out their black rifles were easy to spot. That's when the Rhodies started painting their rifles. They used automotive paint and the colors they chose matched the color of the vegetation native to Rhodesia. The soldiers used whatever they could get their hands on to paint their rifles- paint brushes or even old socks. A lucky few has access to paint sprayers. Each soldier painted his own rifle and no two were alike.

    Part of building a Rhodie FAL is painting it with baby poop. One of the FALFilers sells baby poop in the Marketplace, the FalFiles EE.

    Baby poop really is a thing.
    Well, then I guess depending upon what environment you would find yourself in, that, in turn, would determine what you feed your baby! Lol. Thanks for the background on the paint scheme though...I think it looks pretty nice actually.
    Good night Chesty...wherever you are.
