Camouflaging a Precision Rifle?


I like camouflaging rifles by wrapping them in burlap or similar.

However, this has been done mostly with military arms - Mosin Nagants, SKS, etc - nothing that's too accurate.

I was thinking about doing this to my .22LR Savage Mk II BTVS. It has a free floated barrel.

I'm convinced nothing should touch that barrel.

How do military snipers go about doing this? They have rifles which are more precise at longer distances than my .22lr, but they seem to camo them up to go with their gillie suits.

How do they manage to maintain accuracy?

Thank you,

Burlap will work well to camo your Savage. The military uses it and/or paint(Krylon is your friend). Accuracy is usually not affected due to the light weight nature of the fabric.

Try it, if you don't like the results take it off...besides, it looks cool...

Nah don't sweat the details it won't do a thing to the gun (or its accuracy)
