    I have an older camo dipped shotgun that I am wanting to send off and get redipped in a different pattern. Can that be done? I be never had one redipped.

    Don't know why not....but you might want to verify that by contacting the service that will be doing the work for you.

    properly done, any finish is stripped off anyway. So, yes, it can (and is often) be done.

    I tried them. did a thread on it. Worst stuff ever. There are 'grades' of dip sheets, and I think they use the cheapest allowed.

    Here is the thread. Pics are gone, unfortunately.

    NOW, they may be better now. But they had serious problems, and not just with the material.

    Well there you have it.
    Thanks Native, you probably saved someone $60

    So $200 to $300 three hundred it is.

    Another alternative that has good reviews are the Duracoat kits which are solid colors but you can get military greens and tans. They run about $60
    I have a flat black kit and will do several firearms this summer and will post up

    I sent an old extreme to camo solutions. It had old advantage camo that was horribly faded. He stripped it and put a great looking natgear camo on it.
