    No tolerance problems at all. Just need to clean up the trigger pin holes, and the pivot and take down pin holes. Once that’s done, there’s no issues.

    I even Duracoated the bolt carrier on a couple rifles, and it works fine.

    Once we get through this virus caused slow down, and I get my play money built back up I think I'll give it a try.

    I YouTubed the crap out of it, then I started out just doing solid colors until I got comfortable doing it. I’m no pro my any means, I’m still learning all the time. But its fun to do.

    It looks great from what I can see, photographing it on that dark wood flooring doesn't do it justice.

    Your right, I’ve been trying to find a better spot for pictures, but the lighting is never right. Out in the sunlight it looks very different

    Most them look really good

    But, like Jake from State Farm, that orange is hideous.
