REMINGTON DECOYS

Postby buster_22 » Mon Nov 22, 2004 11:20 pm

I know this is really bad, but I was at Wal-marts yesturday and I came across a 1/2 dozen mallard decoys by Remington they look really bad : to shinny. Anyways there only $12.00 :eek: were $25.00 if that makes a difference. Their waterkeel and really light weight, do you think i could repaint them, would it be worth the $12.00 ? I have the paint I just wasn't sure. Has anyone else seen or heard of them? :salude:

Repainted they may be all right. THey suck in general though had 3 dozen at one point. SOld them after 2 hunts without paint for more than I paid for them.

I would get and repaint....for the few plastics Ikeep handy (for walk-ins) I have repainted to be more realistic anyhow.....I do not klike the commercial paint jobs personally, and with my own paint jobs I feel the blocks are better detailed and offer better visability.....heck, for $12 I would take two or three dozen, repaint and give to friends that like plastics or even a new young hunter at the club
