Would this type of camo be a good substitute to painting?

It is easily removable and it comes in different camo patterns. I am wondering about buying this instead of painting my next rifle. I will be purchasing a new rifle in the fall to use in next years airsoft season.

Any Opinions or comments about this stuff would be appreciated.

I have four packs of that stuff that I used with my m4 when it rained out. This helped keep my rifle from getting wet and damaging anything. However, on a bolt action rifle you will not be able to cover the whole rifle, without it looking ugly. The barrel is easily covered but has to stop before the magazine catch. The scope is also easy to wrap. Just make sure to leave the spot where the rings are attached unwrapped, otherwise the rings wont fit.

Overall, this can easily cover most of the rifle but I recommend a different color than the acu. That is the kind I had and I think its ugly. If you use this, add some rubber bands for vegetation and it will look pretty nice.

I have used this on my ASR for a while now and just took it off to paint. My only problem with it was that it was a. difficult to load and handle the magazine (i guess this would just depend on your rifle) and that b. the pattern I had was real leaf and it was much darker than my environment.

I am planning to use it on my AEG for sure, but I just like the customize-ability of the paint, imo.

Well I understand that you can't put the camo in some places but I like this concept.
I only put the ACU pattern as an example, but I will likely buy this pattern and a couple more different patterns also.

I just really like this concept because I will be able to leave my new rifle black, I like the color and it will be clean looking when I am displaying it and when I am on the field I will use the camo tape.

Yeah, it will work. I used to use it over top of my barrel and then attached some natural vegetation on top using some rubber bands. The camo tape prevented scratches on my barrel from the leaves stems, etc.

Overall, I say go for it. Even if you mess up, just take it off and start it up again ;)

Its pretty hard to tape the gun itself (the stock) and still make it look good. It can be done with a little bit of effort. I just never bothered much with it on my l96 because I use a different rifle wrap. If you are interested in trying it out, go for it. I know a site that sells each wrap for $5. Just cannot remember its name at the moment.
