  • I’ve got to agree with you on both points of typically not caring for camo guns, but finding that one to be pretty cool.

  • Peter

    Nah – thats got ugly gun sunday written all over it!

    • Peter, serious? I love it 🙂

  • Did they ever fix the complaints about the original Mosquito?

  • Matt Groom

    It looks okay, but it makes my eyes hurt, like a ‘Magic Eye’ picture. Does anyone else see the naked chick?

    Black does not occur in nature except in Coal mines and Tar pits. It should never be used in camouflage, especially when it will not fade.

    Great news for plinkers on covert ops in the arctic!

  • Sure, the polar bears won’t see you. So fire that .22 at them and get their attention.

    It still made out of pot metal.

    If you want your firearms to be Camouflage you can send it to Northwest Hydroprint, ie Hydrographic dipping.

    Something like this. Very neat isn’t it? And time saver.

  • Kamil

    It’s a garbage gun. My buddy & I both have one & they’re very ammo picky. If it’s not CCI, then don’t bother.

    Save your money & get a Ruger Buckmark!

    Random question guys, but I’m a pro photographer. I have always wanted to have some of my gear in a Flat dark earth color, or something similar to my firearms. Having seen the videos posted in the link I know I cannot have my camera done that way. Would any one know how, or if it is even possible to have my camera coated/painted, to get the results I desire that would mimic that look?

    • Nmb, a can of spray paint is all you need, but I would not do it – not worth risking your expensive gear.

  • jdun1911

    Nmb you could try duracoat. They sale camouflage templates that goes with their paints. However like Steve said use it knowing the full risk on your camera.

  • MrSatyre

    Black is merely an extreme range of contrast. Look out any window and you will see contrast ratios which make any color appear lighter than it really is or darker than it really is, even to the degree of making it appear black. If you wore black clothes and stood in shadows or in a treeline, you’d be harder to see than if you were wearing a lighter color.

  • Blackwater

    Snow patterns do indeed look amazing. I’ve always wanted to serve in a military unit specializing in artic warfare.

  • Nmb,

    It’s actually quite easy if you’re willing to spray paint your camera. I’ve done a a few long guns in camo and solid colors now.

  • Matt Groom

    Ruger Buckmark?

  • jdun1911

    Ar15 has a refinishing board. A DIY on how to camo your firearms.

    Picture thread. Good stuff.

  • RE mosquito reliability and being finicky about ammo, try using a little lube on the stuff before you shoot. a couple of drops of case lube, or even just some hoppes or remoil, in a plastic baggy with a hundred or so .22s of pretty much any brand cured all my issues. feeds, cycles, and extracts just fine even with remington’s crappy bulk pack stuff.

  • Carl

    Ruger Buckmark lol. I agree though any of the old tried and tested .22 pistols is a better choice than these cheap new guns trying to look like service weapons. Personally I like the High Standard.
