Not bad. I like the way you coordinated the barrel and rings to set off the scope in the same color scheme.

Did you do that yourself? How'd you block off the glass on the scope? Must've been a lot of work.

Well done. I long ago gave up on duracoating because of a dog and 2 cats, and that was with the small job of a pistol slide.

My luck with blue tape is also spotty. Does the Duracoat break free from it, or did you have to cut it at the edges, as well?

It seems to do alright with blue tape. The only problem I learned was with the scope cap covers you need to loosen them a little, so that they do not lock up.

Is that the factory tupper ware stock you painted? Looks great!

I have 10ML and it's a great gun but I hate the stock. Too flimsy but it still accurate enough at 100 yards. Was looking to upgrade the stock to a Bell and Carlson DuraMaxx.

Yes, it is the orginal stock. I thought they were kinda a flimsy too. So, what I did was, you know that area where the magazine would sit in a rifle. I filled with atomized aluminum 2 part epoxy you can buy fairly cheap at an auto supply store I think I gave 15 bucks for a quart sized can, that area serves no function, you would not believe how much it stiffen the stock up.
