WHAT IS EVERYONE USING TO CAMO THEIR CAMERAS. I USED CAMO DUCT TAPE ON MY LAST CAM. I WAS JUST WANTING TO KNOW WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING.THE TAPE WAS PRETTY SIMPLE.I JUST DONT KNOW HOW LONG IT WILL LAST.
I took some flat clear model paint before any glass was installed and sprayed over the cloth tape to help keep it
from peeling off of the box. I only put enough on to
dampen the tape a little bit. Once it's dry, the edges
won't peel up on you.
I think best I have seen yet is by Gun Docc. Go to the thread that knobby started subject "minor problem with design". Follow it through to Gun doccs idea of layers of differant colour caulking. It really looks like bark on my computer. Gives true 3 d appearance
Just finished my first camera, used a cut down 50 cal ammo can... I had a scrap piece of old "Tiger Stripe" type camo (vertical black/green stripes)
Cut it to the approximate size, laid it face down and squeegied (sp?) clear silicone on the back. Applied it to the ammo can, trimmed with a razor, let set and wa-la. Not shiny, and I'm hoping it gives it one more layer of water protection (my welding isn't the best, so lots of holes to seal...)
I had a few rolls that didn't want to stick very well in a few places after application. I wound up using silicone over the outside of the tape, wiping it across and into the mesh of the tape. Hasn't come up on me since.
I used one on my Browning A5. It was a spandex-like sock that you pulled over the gun. I got it from Cabela's I think. You had to cut out a hole for the ejection port and trigger. I'm sure it was less than $10.
It worked good. Since I had no interest in changing the finish of the A5 I thought it was a good solution.
It was a universal sock so it was longer than I needed it to be.
I cut it to the length of my gun. After my first shot I looked at the end and it was torn to shreds. From the recoil it must have slid forward and the shot caught it upon exit and tore the crap out of it. I just re-cut to fit again.
I sent my Benelli SBE to a company in VA a few years ago and they applied the same finish that is used on the factory camo jobs. It works great and has yet to come off. But that is the high end solution.
