Looks kind of cool. I'd like to see how it turns out since I've considered doing an old beater 870 I have in a Mossy Oak type dip.

Someone else posted this M&P 40 camo job a while back, I thought it looked kind of cool. Not sure how he did it though.

That is pretty cool. It almost looks airbrushed.

It's not DIY, but it will likely be a better value.

Looks like water transfer printing, i would guess that in this example the gun was stripped down and the frame was water printed.

Here is an example: http://www.camo-solutions.com/

They also use it alot in airsoft lately: http://shop.ehobbyasia.com/catalogse...&y=0&limit=all



IMO A nice camo pattern is A-TACS

looks awesome, I would like to see a M&P in a digital camo, or a red tiger.

Stuff I've read, it doesn't wear well vs solvents and holsters. I've seen USPSA guns that were dipped. They look awesome for a while, but the coating wears out.
