Got an idea yesterday for a finish update for the barrel on my MVP and my Savage 10FPSR. Since both sit in identically configured LSS chassis' with Vortex Razor II's on them I thought I might do a little paint job to them. Both guns are basically black barrels and FDE stocks and the sorta burnt bronze-ish of the scopes with black bipods. So with these (there are minor differences in present appearance to the pics below but nothing big): To my Savage I was thinking about doing a Texas coral snake finish to the barrel. The chamber end would look like the very end of the tail, the muzzle end just like the muzzle end of the snake: And then on my MVP I was thinking of a Sonoran coral snake Like you'd imagine the Texas coral gets up to 2-3ft long. The Sonoran only gets about a foot long. So doing my .223 in Sonoran pattern and my .308 in Texas pattern seems to make the most consistent metaphorical sense. It'll be easy to do. I still have a shipping sleeve from my last barrel which gives a nice diamond scales pattern. A little masking tape and some FDE and red rattle can and we're there for the Sonoran snake. I'll have to spatter some black paint around on the red stripes for the Texas snake. Thoughts?
