How to Paint Your Firearm: Painting Optics

Author Caleb Savant
3 months ago

  In today's video, we're continuing our series on how to paint your firearm by focusing on painting an optic. We'll discuss the importance of protective equipment, including eye protection, gloves, and a respirator, and emphasize the need for good ventilation.

  We're using Aluma-Hyde II for this project, an air-cure solution that's ideal for optics. We'll guide you through the process of taping the optic, protecting the glass, and ensuring even paint patterns. We'll also cover how to hang the optic for painting, using simple materials like painter's tape and wire.

  The video includes a demonstration of painting a camo pattern to match a previously painted firearm. We'll discuss the importance of timing when applying additional coats and share tips for achieving the best results.

Key points covered include:
-Preparing and taping the optic for painting.
-Using Aluma-Hyde II and its benefits.
-Techniques for hanging the optic.
-Applying a camo pattern to match your firearm.
-Tips for painting optic mounts and ensuring they don't stick.

  If you have any questions or need help, feel free to reach out to us on the tech line. We encourage viewers to share their tips and tricks to help spread knowledge among the community. Thanks for joining us, and we'll see you in the next video!
