    So, after liking how my mossbergs facelift turned out, ive decided that my old faithful backup turkey guns needs a facelift. I got this gun when I was 12 and used it to kill many many turkeys up until about 2 years ago when I bought the 935... When i originally bought it, I did a whirlwin paint job on it and well after banging it around for 10 plus years, decided it was time for a change...

    I just began painting it this afternoon, so no its not finished yet... Right now, its been masked where I didnt want any paint in it. And its got its first coat of paint on it, Tan..

    Heres what it looks like currently...

    Letting it dry completely overnight, tomorrow will undergo the rest of the painting.. more pics to follow tomorrow... In the end, it will look "similar" to the 935, with a couple of small changes as well as one supersecret special addage that will be unveiled soon...

  9. What kinna clear do you use? I paint alot of guns for people and have had real good luck with the krylon satin or matte clear. i apply several cotes I let each one dry and kepp doing that until i use almost a whole can on one gun. It holds up really good that way. I ve got some that i painted over 5 years ago that still look just like when i painted them. Good luck bud and if theres anything i can help with shoot me a pm. Im not sayin im an expert by no means but ive did enough of them ive figured out pretty well what not to do. Good luck bud.

    Rocko, i use the krylon satin, works great.. I do also put a few oats on it, just until im satisfied. Id love to see some that youve painted, i always like seeing new ideas.. Ive painted a few, just getting into patining them more seriously.. My mossy 935 was the last one i painted, theres a thread on here somewhere about it...

    Chairman, glad ya asked sir... here is how it sets right now... Unfortunately havent gotten as much done today on it as I had hoped so far, my brother his wife and new baby showed up, so painting kinda got put on the back burner, the browns a dryin good, next will be green, then the superspecial secrect addage... Anywho, here ya go..
