Depends on what you want to use it for. My 1322 and itsTKO is camouflaged to break up the outlines. In the case some neighbor sees it through the crack in the fence.

If you havent tried RWS pellets in a while give them a try.

Thanks for the responses, it gives me something to think about, but on the other side of things I have not been asked for a bright color in 7 years of making these? I have been asked for camo and for a blued finish, but you can not blue aluminum, anodize yes but not blue. Anodizing is not an option for me, not available where I am and too specialized for me to get into. I guess I should stick with black and just accommodate customers with bright colors if I get a special request, all the best, Neil.

Some form of camo would be my choice. The varmints will see bright colors and run off!

Many years ago an English hunter said something and I told him I will quote him many times in the future.

Not a bad idea, Neil.  Maybe you charge extra for a custom wrap?  Wouldn't take too long, you could offer ANY color and find out what makes you money and make it a specialized charge.

Wildcatter it is not about making money for me, it is about giving the customer what he wants, I see there are some chemical dips that can be done at home and might not be too expensive. I wish I could add an anodized finish but that would cause me way too many problems, all the best, Neil.

Black truck bed spray is my default.

Flat camo green on this one just to be different.

Ribbed and ventilated for your shooting pleasure.
