    I'm having a real hard time deciding! Should I camo my Remington 700 Police or keep it blacked out? I had my heart set on camo, but now I can't seem to pull the trigger.

    Black is the best. If you camo it you will never be able to find it!

    I voted for black. Camo is cool lookin' and everything, but, personally, I am more interested in function rather than form. Simple is best...

    I voted stick to black, but have you thought about maybe a grey to black camo job? My buddy did it to his Remington and it looks real slick.

    I voted to Spray Away, but it's your rifle. Do what you want. You might also check out the services of SouthRidge Arms, a supporting vendor here, and look into having a Gun Kote treatment. I'm considering this for a Varmint AR that I have. It's not cheap, but I've heard it's a really durable finish. Unless you're considering keeping it original in case you want to sell it down the road, go with it. :thumbup:

    You ever going to sell it? If not...CAMO AWAY! I've done this to a few guns already myself that I never plan to sell.

    Black

    Camo is for Bubbas

    That oughta stir 'em up...:cool:

    That rifle was designed to act just like a surgeons scalpel...to cut out and eliminate the bad sections...

    You ever seen a camo scalpel?

    Just my opinion...and we all know about opinions...

    Well I get tired of guns a lot and sell or trade a lot of them. I'm kinda thinking I might leave it black till I get it 100% how I want it, then paint it.

    It also helps to get a test gun first. Old rifle or something in case your not the great artist you thought you were.

    You could try the camo wraps, these can be removed later if need. They look like ankle wrap type material that has a camo pattern.

    Madcratebuilder that is nice.

    As for cammo in general it depends on the color in the environment you use the rifle. Mostly at the range don’t touch it. If you hunt and do a lot of stalking think about the colors in the environment if you think it would improve your odds seeing that the hunter would be warring orange.
    My opinion is dont bother, but is your gun do as you wish.

    I would go with just some tiger stripes. Good anywhere.

    And that M1A is my dream gun. I would sell everything I own to buy one. If I had enough stuff to add up to that kinda scratch.

    I put a base coat of olive drab gunkote (spelling?) on my Remmington 700 with an Accuracy International Stock Chassis. Over that I applied the tans, browns and blacks with a spray paint kit just in case I want to change my camo theme in the future. The scope I just spray painted because it was aluminum and would not rust under the spray paint.
