    my son painted his marlin 22 with crylon fusion plastic paint. he camo'd the whole gun. he uses it quite a bit and isnt gentle with it ( he's 18 ) and the paint has held up real well, just scratched off barrel in a few spots. i did the synthetic stock on my ruger 77 with desert tan fusion paint and it came out awsome and is tough as nails.

    I don't have a picture of it anymore but many years ago, I took my Mossberg Model 42M-B and has the stock painted high gloss black. A friend, who worked at a Lincoln-Mercury dealership, had the body shop use black automobile paint. They did a great job on it. It took me 25 or 30 years to realize what I had done to a beautiful rifle. Last year I stripped all of that paint off of it and put it back in it original shape, or as close as I could get to it, anyway. I will never do that again!
