For your viewing pleasure: Camo Autocockers!

I have a passion for autocockers. I love playing with them, love working on them. I had two project guns sitting that I wanted to do something different with them. I decided to have them wrapped in mossy oak pattern camo through a process called hydro dipping. This can be fairly durable depending on the quality of sealing product. Please come back often as I will be updating with more pictures and some shooting videos later on.

The company that did the work is Carolina Custom Camo. http://www.carolinacustomcamo.com/

Gun 1: Earon Carter Mini Cocker
Gun 2: E-oraccle

Both guns were made from spare parts I had laying around. I plan on making the mini body a pump.

Before:





After:





Im waiting on the front block for the oracle and a few parts for the mini body then I will build them and post pics and videos of the guns.

UPDATED 3/28/14

Pump is built






Oracle is 95% built. Just gotta install the eye and relube the solenoid. It does shoot and its very pretty in person...

Can't wait to see them done. Why didn't they do the feed neck on the Carter?

Holy mod love. Lol, gotta break up the blue.

The camo looks flawless as well, except why is the "mossy oak" upside down?

Exactly what I was thinking. It looks great, but that would bug the crap out of me forever.

The guy that did it doesnt know anything about paintball and I didnt leave specific enough instructions I guess. It still looks good and it doesnt bother me.

i had a DM4 hydrodipped mossy oak as well, as well as the stock UL barrel. I use the barrel every weekend on the majority of my guns, and its starting to chip pretty badly now.

I dont think it would be too much of an assumption to say that If you used a regular anodized barrel in the same way, it would probably look bad too. The quality of the clear coat on the parts I think is what helps determine the durability.

Looks nice, but I might never forgive you for going with a hunting camo pattern on an Earon Carter body.
