Yea what is it.I camoed my 870 with rustoleam and a fern.I primarily hunt in salt water and thick mud and this saves me from an hour of scrubing after every hunt I still have to sand it down and repaint it every couple of years.I save my good guns for upland birds and trap.
Yes it will. If your going to camo up you gun with spray paint your going to do some damage to the finish. Most of us just run some fine steel wool or emery cloth over the gun before hunting season and give ol blue another coat of camo paint. You can try some camo tape or snake skin camo if your worried about your gun. If your hunting ducks get a gun your not going to worry about.
I did a benelli m1...put it on per the directions..hunted 2 seasons in salt marsh..sprayed the gun after each time..used my wife's hair dryer to remove when i went to teade the gun..NO RUST..NO DINGS IN THE STOCK..it looked like the gun had never duck hunted..i got another kit for Christmas..NO i don't have stock in the company..It Works
If you want to have your camo done professionally here you go: trebark http://www.trebark.com Make sure you read about it. It says some insect repelents and a names a few other liquids that will cause the trebark to wear off. Looks great!
1st Attempt at Camo Cladding turned out much better than I anticipated. Could be better, but could've been alot worse. I found where you can get Camo CLad Shotgun kits in Advantage Camo for $5. If you are interested let me know.
That looks good KS. I bought an 870 mag and it came with a dull finish. No blueing and no shine in the stock. It's not the best looking gun but it serves its purpose of being less visible when the sun reflects off of it.
That looks great! I like my good old black composite 870 special purpose, but may try that. I had a very nice one that A friend had sent out and refinished with a very nice low gloss finish on all the metal, parkerized or something like that. I took the shiny finish off the stocks and used just rubbed oil on it. Looked very classy and blended in just fine. Kind of like a express but many notches above in the look, finish quality, and of course there no pump made today as slick as a wingmaster. A nice option if you like a more traditional look and the wingmaster quality.
I put the camo tape on my 835 a few years back for Turkey season, it rained, got wet. Not thinking about it I dried it off, oiled it up on the moving and internal parts. Yea, bad! About ten days later pulled the tape off, rust beyond reasonable repair on the barrel. Will camo clad react the same way? A little late for the Mossy now, took it apart, stripped it, primed it and camo painted with my airbrush. Looks pretty good for a Turkey gun.
I used camo clad on a gun for two years and loved it. I was curious as to how it was going to come off - so I took it off and it came off easy without hurting the gun and it really protected the stock and the blueing. No rust at all. I would recommend it.
Take your time putting it on - it will take a couple of hours.
I hunt pretty hard & my 870 Super Mag has had a "duck guns life"... I Camo Claded it 2 years ago & never had any problems. I removed the Camo Clad after this season to see how well the gun was holdin' up & to do a through cleanin'... I'll be Camo Cladin' it before next season. :thumbsup:
