good job airmec. looks great. i had one of these guns too. i didn,t know when i got it that it was so toyish. this was about a year ago. i never heard about camo paint or dip back then. so what i did with mine was paint it with wood stain and clear coated it. turned out good. pics should still be somewhere on here. just might give you another idea to use. i gave my mod 74 away after i painted it.


Thank you Pete! But guess what? I didn't called it ''Travelling Daisy'' for nothing, this one WAS the one you refinished, I inherited it LOL! Unfortunately the stock suffered some hard handling and had a few good scratches, that's why I re-did it. I'm real glad I saw in real the finish you did though, now I know! I just hope you don't mind too much... :)

wow. really lol. the travelling daisy. i think thats great. after i wrote you to ask if you saw what i did to mine. i looked up that old post and saw that you did respond to it. i never knew it would end up with you. keep up the good work. maybe this could be a real traveller and in 5 or so years from now we can see how many hands it goes through and how many coats of paint. lol.

I thought that I'd shoot it for a while, and eventually offer it as a gift too :) . And thank you for the kind words :drinkers: .

your welcome. i hope the gun gets well enjoyed for a long time. hey i bought some rustoleum clear coat today. i was going to give my little rifle that i camoed a couple coats. but i,m not sure if i should. it,s supposed to protect the paint. but i don,t wan,t to end up ruining the nice job i did on it. have you put any thought to clear coat.

Yes I bought some to try, DupliColor trim & bumper clearcoat. I don't know yet what kind of finish it gives, but if it's like the bumper paint I used in the past, it'll give a satin finish. This is a product that resist scratches very well, and stays flexible when cured. But I need to try it before making any affirmations, and not on the PlastiDip coating. I have some plastic Crosman 13xx grip panels I could try this on, that'll give me a good idea. Hey you could do something similar: spray a coat or two of your camo paint on something you can loose, then try the clear coat on it. I'll come back later with pics of the clearcoated grip panels.

You're most welcome Pete. I sprayed one grip panel with the Duplicolor clear coat, and it indeed has a satin finish. In the picture the right hand one is the one I did, not easy to see, but it's less shiny.

I remember seeing that at my local CT, nice to know it's giving good results! On my list now :). If you can post a pic that would be nice.

Now put that rattle can away and take a deep breath :lol:

thanks airmec. this was just a tester too-- so i could try out that clear coat. i think it passed -- A+ . because it really gives it a nice look. i had a little tube of red dollar store paint out in the garage and that helped set the look off even better. hmmmm what next--- lol. actually i might have to get another can of camo spray because my one can is very close to being empty already.

LOL I would lose that.. Like I lose my measuring tape, pencils, 10mm socket ETC in the garage..

I often put something down in the garage. Then do something, and then look around like John Travolta in Pulp Fiction, wondering where I put it.
