Savage Mark II TRR SR gets some rattle can action

I got bored one day and decided to do something stupid.  The day before me and my pals were supposed to head out to Squamish to do a little shooting, I decide to throw some Krylon onto my brand new Savage Mark II TRR SR.  I haven't even shot it yet, and I was planning to the next day, but stupidity overcame me and I got the paint out.  Then I read the instructions, dry to the touch in 15 minutes, but takes 7 days to cure and harden.  The instructions were correct, it was dry, but slightly tacky and I wasn't able to take it out to shoot.  A week later, it felt totally dry as if it came from the factory like that.

It turned out pretty nice actually, and almost like a factory job, so much so, that I put the Savage sticker back on the stock for this photo shoot, haha!

New addition is the Tactical Solutions compensator.  It really doesn't make a huge difference with a .22lr rifle, especially one with a 22 inch barrel
