Sorry about the glare on these bad boys, I assure you the finish is not that reflective (nor is it completely flat) another paint guy and I mixed the OD and THIS (?) and did two 9mm full size guns. The OD is still drying, it is the real pretty one (with new crimson trace installed) and I will post pics when it is done. Someone like yukonglocker or another off the forum who I can find out how to do great post from would be nice to learn from on this. It's hard to see but the gun in the image has a polished barrel and trigger job....I love it. It's going to be re-done a hair lighter but not to a coyote tan or sand...I want to be different.

Let me give you a little advice on photos on the internet.



To make any sense out of the photos you really need to size them for viewing on a computer monitor, your photos are 2304x1728, they should be no larger than 800x600, that's about 1/3 the size of the files you have online now.

the sheen is the only fault I can see with it, it looks very good.



To get a flat look,

Try experimenting with as much reducer (thinner) as you can get away with. Carefully heat up the surface with a heat gun or hairdryer as you spray coats, and try to jack up the air pressure.



Good luck. :wink:

That looks like burnt-orange to me... but for some reason, it looks WAY to glossy in the pictures for my taste, though it is nice. Good job.

I really didn't want the flat look, I kinda wanted what I got....just a tad lighter...but not coyote.
