    A cheap way to bling up a rifle, bought the wrap for 24 euro from "girlcountry" on ebay.

    There's a big choice of different designs, you just clean the rifle then stick it on in sections rub out any air bubbles and use a hair dryer to make it more flexible around curves or contours, trim off any excess with a blade.

    Plenty videos on Youtube, nice way to pass a couple of hours while day dreaming about stags.

    It's actually easy to do once you have a bit of patience, loads of videos on Youtube that show you how and if you make a mistake or there are air bubbles just unpeel it and stick the same piece again.

    The hairdryer melts/moulds the material onto the rifle, just have a few sharp blades ready for trimming and take your time.

    Do you have a link to the store?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,712 ✭✭✭ Rows Grower


    www.gunswrap.com is the address, I bought from ebay where the seller is under the name "girlcountry", order comes from Russia and takes about 3 weeks but it's a nice surprise when it does arrive.

    Nice, tasty and professional looking job. Did ya do the barrel too?

    Is it waterproof/resistant? I ask because if the barrel is wrapped and it allows water to seep through or "rest" under the wrapping it may cause rust issues.

    There's a small bit left over if anyone wants it to experiment with it on something just drop me a PM and I'll stick it in the post. The creases disappear when you stick it on.
