Not finished as of yet, but it's coming along. Tell me your thoughts as I am looking for ideas....

I like some contrast, receiver one color handgurads another. Perhaps that tan and coyote tan for the stock and handguard.

Almost looks like a good base for multi-cam.

I'll bet you are surprised to hear that coming from me.

I like it! Now if you cut down a mag I think it would really give it the sniper look

Yeah, the paint is not finished, although I havent decided yet whether to camo it out or ad some coyote-ish color for contrast like SRT suggested.

Muttly, as you and I have been discussing, the mag chop is on the list of to-dos :)

I think some contrast would look good. Maybe a darker Tan (Dark Earth) or something along those lines.

Dark earth is also a good call.

I think a contrast in colors would be nice. I'm not sure if I would go desert camo, or just handguard,stock, and grip. I think it is going to look sweet.

Looks real good but add more color. Add some streaks of coyote and OD and I think youll be set!

I say go for the full on desert camo look... Only other thing I'd change would be to slide the "suppressor" forward to be flush with the end of the barrel.

I think "Sand Gnat" is a bit of a misnomer though.... With a barrel that long it should be something more along the lines of "Desert Skeeter from Hell".... :rail:

Nice work Windwalker it looks great. Though it'd look super sweet with the fully camo'd up paint job on the SR25 halfway down the page on this link.

I look forward to seeing the finished item :thumbsup:
