  • Painted m40a3 thread

    Hey guys Ive recently built another m40!
    completed my trio and built an m40a3.. I dont think i'll build anything else the process to acquire parts was treacherous to say the least.
    I want to paint the rifle despite everyone telling me not to.
    Can you guys post your painted m40's and if your in the know, maybe add how you did it in detail?
    Thanks in advance

    The M40A1 is sporting the original years’ worth of USMC field paint. I could only bring myself to spray pain the stock on (one of) my M40A3.
