What is the process used for camo of guns?
The gun is taken disassembled and cleaned, then painted with auto grade paint with a color to match the pattern selected. The pattern is cut to size of part and placed in a large stainless steel tank along with part. Then a chemical in water separates pattern from flim and adheres pattern to gun part.
