I have been experimenting with getting new looks for the stock of my VSR. As some people konw I have used wood contact paper giving my sniper rifle a realistic look at first glance. I have found something new that fits my budget so I might try it.

Its a very cost effective way to camo your gun. I think I will have to have a look at it in person first, good thing there is a cabelas around town.

Do you know what they mean by "east cleanup?" Just wondering because it seems like you mght have to scrape or peel it off which in turn would not prove healthy to your rifle.

Should read "easy".

It sounds much like the heat shrink plastic used to seal the caps of pancake syrup bottles and the like. I'd assume you just make a starting cut and then peel back.

The wrap does look shiny though. Maybe apply this as a foundation and then top off with patches of the fabric camo tape from Walmart?

I think I'm going to try and test it on one of my springers first and if I like the way it comes out I will use it on the stock of my VSR 10. I'm just a little worried that its going to be too shiny.

Some fine grit sandpaper (+1000) can rub out most of it without grinding it down. If it is a plastic coating, it might make your hands sweaty after use.

It does not stick to the gun and feels good. It is like the bandages that they put on you when you donate blood. Those non stick bandages.

This is a picture of the snakeskin gun camo. I decided it would be too complicated to put it on the whole gun and I am still not sure im going to keep whats on it. I came out pretty nice with only a couple wrinkles. I will leave it on at least through op devils confine for anyone who wants to see it.
