It only made it up to $700. I don’t know AKs so I don’t know what a Yugo M70AB2 “thick receiver” underfolder is worth, but $1500 seems high. I guess a sweet paint job like that can command a premium though.

Coming soon to a hood near you. Think of how much of a status symbol a think like this would be! If you had this and a gold tiger striped Deagle you’d be untouchable:
Imma give these fools a choice.. tha CHOPPA or the DEAGLE. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrap BrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrraP it’s ovah! 2012 is mine playa! Rat-ta-tat-tat 100 bullets from my choppa clip make a hater sick.
*facepalm* that was the best I could do without extreme profanity.
On 1 April, TACOM Life Cycle Management Command issued the Maintenance Information Message MI 10-040 “Camouflaging Specific Small Arms” stating that, given command approval, Soldiers are permitted to camouflage the M4/M16 weapon systems with paint.
As the guide says at the end, weapons painting has been elevated to a fine art. I don’t know where the awesome examples I saved on my harddrive went, but some of the paint jobs I have seen are breathtaking. The example the have in the PDF is pretty weak looking as far as artistry goes, although it still would likely look better than black in the right environment.
I’d like to see the military started paying soldiers that are also artists extra money to paint rifles. The talented guys shouldn’t have to work for free just because their whole unit would rather not walk around with the plain old black color scheme.
