    I am sending off a synthetic stock and the bipod to get a snow camo paint job tomorrow. My question is.

    Do you guys think there will be any adverse effects to getting the scope painted?

    warpig - I'm almost sorry I brought up the subject of scopes when you said you were getting everything camo'd.

    I wouldn't think it would hurt but then again I virtually am at the beginning of the learning stage about scopes.

    The only adverse effect will be when you get it back and find out the painter made a mistake and painted it pink with little flowers.

    MIght depend if the paint(chemicals) has any effects on the seals or o-rings. also make sure that all movable parts still move like objective, power ring if not fixed power. Eye focus.
