Great thread! I'm shopping for airbrush equipment right now, as I want to get into painting my black rifles as well. Patience and prep seem to be the name of the game with these projects. The actual painting is the quick and easy work...provided you do it correctly.
I'm very interested in cloning the optifade pattern found on Sitka's Big Game clothing line. Why? Because that's what wear hunting. It's simply a cleaver color scheme that's based from digicam. What is different about compared to USGI digicam is the level of detail...it's ridiculous. Since I haven't fooled with painting guns yet, I'll probably work up to that level of detail.
