Sorry in advance form the XXXL photo but I don't have the time or energy to resize them. Besides, you get all the details this way.

I've wanted a DSLR for years, and finally pulled the trigger. Thought I'd try it out. Hope you enjoy!

G19 with my new AR build that I just finished on Friday. Cant wait to get her out to the range.





And with the little brother, the LCP :


Cheers!

Default Gave my 21SF a baby brother.

Picked up my used G19 on Sunday after being in jail. Bought it from a member here. I love how it feels in hand. Man these things are addictive and prone to multiplying. I guess the rule of 2 is strong with Glocks as they are with M1A's/M14's. I added a smooth trigger, Vickers extended mag release, and a factory Glock extended slide stop.

Oh wow! many thanks for the compliment.

Yeah I did this myself. This was my first Duracoat experience and I was quite nervous about the outcome. I have used Krylon on my AR, but airbrushing is a whole different beast. I practiced on plastic storage container lids using Enamel model paint first, to get used to the air brush and see if my stenciling would be any good. It was good enough for me. So I moved on.

This took 8 days to complete - after some research on Duracoat I found out that it seems to be recommended to allow more cure time than what Lauer says the minimum is. So I did 1 color every 1 or 2 days. But supposedly if you wait more than 48 hours between coats you will need to re-sand the existing coat to rough it up, so I never waited longer than 2 days.

The colors I got are the Air Force ABU package (Tan, Light Green, Med. Green, Dark green). I have a sneaking suspicion that my colors may had been mixed wrong or aging or something, because the 3 greens are much darker than what I've seen others produce with the same kit.

I de-greased everything (fully stripped the glock) with Acetone and used a gun cleaning kit brush on every surface that was to be painted. Then I sanded everything down with 200-400 grit sandpaper and fine/medium steel wool. I kind of screwed up there and actually gouged up the frame in a few places, but I got the desired rough surface. After sanding I blew off all parts with highly pressured air going through a needle attachment. I also dunked everything in denatured alcohol, just in case. Denatured alcohol is residue free so it's good to use as a last chemical treatment right before painting ... or so I've read.

All my coats are applied twice. I only let it cure for about 10 min between coats because I used a hair drier to help it flash off.

Base coat - Tan (I'm linking the pics instead of displaying them so as not to spam up the thread too much)
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0285.jpg

Used Frogtape to mask off everything I wanted to stay tan.
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0287.jpg

Second Coat - ABU Light Green
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0288.jpg

Kept the first tape on and added more for all the areas I wanted to stay Light Green.
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0299.jpg

Third Coat - ABU Med. Green
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0311.jpg

Peeled everything away. Turns out the color difference between Light and Medium is totally negligible unless you stick your nose right up to the surface.
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0303.jpg

Originally I wanted to only do these 3 colors, but It didn't look good enough yet. So I decided to go with some Dark.

Taped it off keeping all areas that needed paint exposed.
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0309.jpg
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0310.jpg

Fourth Coat - Dark Green

Final product.
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0313.jpg
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0316.jpg

After 2 coats of Duracoat Matte Clear
http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/m...k/IMG_0324.jpg

If you pay close attention to the last image you'll notice a bunch of sputtering on the inside of the trigger guard and on parts of the grip. I believe this happened for two reasons:
1) I sprayed half of the coats in fog .. dense as freaking milk which probably caused the Duracoat to settle awkwardly and catch a bunch of water on the way to the surface.
2) I may have had a contaminated mixing container for the clear coat. Might have had some fuzz and dust get in over night.

Regardless, these little bumps actually rubbed with a finger and the actual coat remains non compromised so I lucked out.
Tomorrow I go shoot the crap out of it and allow all the natural contact and high impact areas to leave their chips and scrapes in the coats - that's when it will REALLY look good!

Cheers!
