I painted the barreled action with satin black spray paint. The rest of the gun will be paint a textured flat black

Image

The satin black was too shiny, so after it dried/cured, I misted it with flat black

Image

I put one coat of black on and quickly realized there was some low spots that showed up. I used spot putty to get them flat

Image

I also painted the stainless screws/bolts

Image

After several coats, I left it to cure for 48hrs

Then I cemented the fake bolts in place with JB Weld.

Image

I ran into a little SNAFU when trying to tighten the set screws holding the butt stock in place. The threads were not tapped all the way through, which makes sense as this was designed to attach hand guards and you wouldn't want the threads hitting the barrel. Luckily I had the correct 8-32 tap on hand.

Image

I had to decide on what to do for sights, originally I thought of going with iron sights, but since I cut the barrel, I would need to find a new front mount.

I ended up buying one of these holographic sights, it's an elcheapo chinese made unit, but I figured it was worth a shot for the $15 I paid for it.
