I have a Rossi single shot 20 gauge that I hadn't used in a while and decided to make it a bit more interesting. You can use any old single shot, or any firearm for that matter.

Things you'll need:
1. Four different colors of spray paint in a matte finish, preferably those that best match your local woodlands. I chose olive, tan, green, and brown.
2. Protective Matte Clear Coat.
3. Painters tape.
4. Wax paper.
5. Scissors.
6. Tweezers.
7. A firearm to paint!
8. A whole ton of patience.

Step 1: Prep Work

First off, make sure your firearm is unloaded and pointed in a safe direction. Now that that's done, we want to remove as much surface oil as possible so that the paint adheres well. I accomplished this by repeatedly rubbing the shotgun down with rubbing alcohol and allowing to air dry.

Next you will want to tape off or remove which ever parts that you do not want to paint. I chose to tape off the hammer/ejection lever, trigger guard assembly, and sling mounts. I also removed the rubber butt pad.
<p>Really not bad for a spray can job. It's been a few months, has it stayed durable? I know you added clear coat in description so I know that helps. Sometimes around the barrel and breach area paint will bubble, discolor or peal due to heat from shooting.</p><p>Again, good job! just checking on on how it held up</p>
<p>yours came out better than i expected, good job</p>
<p>Spray paint camo on guns and trucks and other things that just aren't redneck enough usually comes out looking cheap, but you did a good job.</p>
<p>It turned out awesome!!! How did it hold up to use though?? I would have clear coated it and got black rubber grips for the hand hold so it wont wear off!!! Really nice job though thanks for posting!!!</p>
<p>Hahaha never mind about the clear coat I really gotta read more carefully!!</p>
man thats really cool I have the exact same gun lol
That turned out AWESOME!!!
Thank you!
