Krylon Ultra-flats in the rattle cans go on pretty nice, and hold up fairly well. I did two Kevlar helmets (one had to stay with my old unit), a pair of Nerf sniper rifles, and the base coat on a model tank, as well as touching up an S-250 shelter on the back of a Humvee with them.

I'll second the sentiments on Krylon rattlecan paints. I've shot three firearms with the stuff and it holds up really well. Here's my Browning shotgun:

I'd camo my '93 like this '92 in a heartbeat if I had the confidence to do it!
Lot of youtube videos out there, but haven't got my nerve up yet

IDK, lots of the rattlecan crowd swear by the Rustoleum. One of the guys on YouTube emphatically warns against Krylon.
IDK why but he seemed pretty adamant. I've always had better results from Rustoleum myself. But I'd suppose opinions of spray paint are sorta like beer or cigs.

Once you go paint gun, its hard to go back.
Buying paint by the gallon is SOOOO much cheaper and man does it ever go on easier and much more uniformly.

for about a hundred to a hundred fifty bucks you can get a cheapo compressor and paint gun.
Just do it! It will pay for itself in paint and time savings.
