    Rustoleum has some pretty good colors in their Camo line. Just make sure that the surface is clean (I use brake cleaner) and dry. Use several light coats rather than one heavy. I finish with a good flat or satin clear. Is it as tough as DuraCoat? No, but touch up is easy, if you feel the need. If you want to get really fancy, buy some craft paint at a craft or fabric store and use a technique called "dry brushing", prior to the clear coat. If your budget will allow, there are places that dip coat in a variety of patterns. Google is your friend.

    If you already have everything you need to airbrush, then the Cerakote air dry version is really hard to beat. Pretty simple to spray on and then let dry for a few days for full cure. It's pretty forgiving and very tough.

    Never used cerakote personally but it looks good on guns i have seen. I have used duracoat with good results. Get the starter kit and you have pretty much everything you need. Just make sure you get all your parts cleaned and degreased before starting.

    Cerakote. My Benelli M2 .12ga rusted after forgetting it in a case after a duck trip and I had the barrel cerakoted black. It looks awesome!

    Hell, if you pop the action out of the stock you could just paint/coat it some type of brown or dirt color, that would mix well with the stock and scope.

    If you want to coat everything, a homemade "brush" camo always looks good, pine needles, leaves, etc. Can't wait to see what it looks like when it's done.

    But, I have to ask, what's with the thin pink lace in the top right? ;)

    Here's a couple pics of a 700 I did a few years back. Pics are of the same rifle, just different time periods. I just used some Krylon camo spray paint from Wal-Mart and a stencil that I cut out of cardboard.

    Just my opinion but I think the flat dark earth is a great idea. It is a color that can blend well with pretty much any area.

    I prefer taping the rifle and scope with padded tape and then use krylon paint ... it means the original finish is protected and you can top up the tape/cammo pattern as and when needed.
