    I decided to rattle can the 6.8 for a Christmas Eve project. It came out ok for my first time doing a spray camo job. I put a centurion arms ast 2 stage trigger in it today. It is miles ahead of the mil spec trigger I had in it. Just need to go to the range and test it out.

    Thanks. I was wanting more green but the tan blends in more with the prairie grass in South Dakota. I may paint my 5.56 and have green as the prominent color just for kicks.

    I painted the 5.56 rails today. I think they turned out better than the 6.8. I should have painted the whole rifle but the garage is a bit nippy with the 5 degree weather

    I decided to paint the whole rifle. I also installed an ambidextrous safety. I’m out of black rifles to paint now. I guess another build is in order.

    I need to get and and do some sub zero shooting. It’s good to test your guns in all of seasons. I usually end up going by myself because my friends are fair weather shooters. It has to be above 50 with the sun out and no wind.

    I'm like a kid at christmas before the first -20 morning of the winter. Anything built or modified during the previous year goes out in the cold the night before, ammo and all. I'm on the line and sending them before the sun is actually up, only ever got one person to go with me other than my Father, an ex brother in law that was applying for ST6 at the time so had his macho up. Maybe because I grew up in it but I really don't see what the big deal is with cold, why people have this hate for it, I find it very exhilarating to be in the great outdoors on those crisp mornings.

    I agree with you on the fun in the cold. Can always put more clothing on. I do enjoy warm weather as well but for very different reasons. Love winter storms.

    I was unhappy with how the first paint job on the 6.8 turned out. The khaki and forest green wasn’t working for me. I picked up some aervoe brand sand and field drab paint. Sand is the base coat with field drab over it, a little bit of Rustoleum light army green mixed in and a touch of black. I know the antelope and deer don’t care but I like how this color combo turned out.

    What if they aren’t all black?
