CONCEPTION REALITY STORY creation Screaming Eagle THIS RIFLE WILL LOOK LIKE THIS FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE REQUEST A CONSULTATION When Andy came into the shop to show us his new tattoo, we all agreed it would make a pretty neat theme for a rifle.
After taking a photo of his tattoo, we digitized it to create a stencil that we could use to paint on the stock. Not wanting the feathers of the eagle and scales of the snake to be lost over the design of the stock, we first painted the areas to give it a brushed steel look. Then we meticulously etched out and painted the design. To tie this build in with the other custom rifles we have created for Andy, we painted "In God We Trust" on the forend of the stock. From there, we used a brand-new fluting pattern we call "banded" that matches another one of his tattoos. We topped it off with Triad rings painted to match and a NightForce scope.
