Once you get those rifles together you'll have the makings for a colorful Christmas tree.

I must say the yellow and black look very sharp. I'd like to see what all the colors look like when installed on a rifle. Eddie

The only thing that really matters are the hits. I don't personally like what I see, but that doesn't mean I find it unacceptable. As long as you're happy, that's what counts

I am only doing this for the novelty of the project.
With plenty of nice wood stocks in the shop, it is no big deal.
Only takes a couple of seconds to switch them around anyway.
If indeed they are not what I want, a spray can and they are back to boring olive drab.
