Default Going Camo!

So ive had my Marilin XL7 chambered for .270 win for a year now and i cant say anything bad about it! i love it, im hitting dimes at 100 yards! it was only 350$, it was a steal. I originally had it in synthetic black, my dad got it for me for a gift. i like synthetic its cool but i like wood to. but to change it up i got some camo gun tape! how do you guys think it looks? almost as legit as a gun with a camo pattern? any of you guys used it in the past? (i know it doesnt really matter if my gun is camo for hunting but i thought id change it up)

I've thought about using the tape before, but I was mainly concerned with how well it would adhere to the stock and if you take it off if it would harm the finish. That looks good, better than I would have thought. Where did you get the tape?

i got this at dicks sporting goods, looks nice, you can get it in a cloth or vinyl, the cloth is a big hassle to get off from what ive heard but this is a no mar type. lots of different camo patterns, its called hunters specialties real tree no mar gun tape http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/se...un%20tape&sr=1
its 5$ and when i was putting it on it seemed to stay on very nice and came off smooth as butter, i had a little trouble on the bends of the rifle but it worked out ok, i used some electrical tape to get the job done as you see.

If you ever take the tape off and it has a gooey residue left behind, buy a product called "Goo Gone." It does an awesome job removing stuff like that.
