7 Dakota make over Login/Join

Hello all,
While I do some pretty interesting and unique jobs for customers. I rarely spend much time on my own guns. I bought a 7 Dakota from a member here and love the gun but didn't care much for the looks. I have a couple red , white and blue guns so I wanted to do an unusual camo that would look good at the range and also work well in the field. This is the first time I have tried this technique and would love to hear/see your opinions. As always I appreciate the views given on this sight.

Wow, you are super talented! My opinion only: I love stock and matching scope. I do not like action/barrel. I swap stocks and barrels and always play musical scope(s). I like that the scope would “live” with stock though. Really cool urban camouflage design.

Nice camo pattern. I really like it. What colors did you use? I'm only seeing black, silver and white it looks to me. Maybe because of the flash.
I like it.

Thanks guys,
Lets try this again!
Roger, It is a bolt from Pacific tool & gauge. I own several of them.
Aaron, No it is all cerakote. Four colors and two stencils
Sonny, I expected that from you! flag
Brad, I pretty much feel the same way. I used to swap scopes quite a bit. But I decided this scope, barrel/action and stock were going to remain as one. And I'm not much for standard camo. Although I sure do a lot of them for clients.
Dan, It includes media blasting. Four coats of cerakote. Two different kinds of stencils and four baking cycles.
Mike, I used Satin Mag (Silver), Stainless, Tungsten and Graphite black.
I finally got out to shoot it today. I will post results shortly.
Thank you all for the kind words.

We made it out shooting yesterday and the Dakota had mixed results.
I only loaded two different shells. Same load and bullet. Changed the coal.
Groups were shot at 100 yards using a bipod and rear bad.
I only loaded six rounds per length and shot 3 shot groups
I used CCI magnum primers and Retumbo under a 168gr. Berger VLDH
The longest of the two wasn't horrible. Right at 1.100" The second was .007 shorter and produced the group seen here. I do admit. This is the biggest pistol I have and I'm still not quite comfortable getting close to the scope yet. So I believe this is a really good round and will tighten up as I get over the yips!!
Any suggestion from those who have this caliber are always welcome.

A better brake will make a world of difference in recoil. Something with angled ports.

Light contour barrel with 180’s
If I had went with the larger diameter brake,
Recoil would have been less.

Matt,
Don't you have one of my certificate's? Lets do something with one of yours!
Here is a cool project I just did for a customer. He wanted the Roni and the Glock 19 to look like flags by themselves and look as one flag when put together.
Turned out pretty cool. All ceraKote. Four colors.
