    Go to mydipkits.com and they have DYI kits for about a $100 or so. It is the hydrographic process and pretty easy to do. There is enough product to do a full long gun and mess up on one part.

    I would strongly argue against mydipkit.com. , from personal experience...........

    There are LOTS of bad reviews on the internet.

    Duracoat is one option. I have not done it, but it does get good reviews....

    My deer hunting rifle is just a rattle can, tan base coat with some brown stripes. Pretty simple, and effective. Of course, it ruins the classic looks, but I never plan to sell it anyway.

    This thread on DHC is the one most commonly referred to.

    Camo rifles. Because sometimes truck stickers just aren't enough.
