quote:but what happens with the paint on the awsome looking M240 above when you dump some 250-600 rounds through the barrel?
Motherfucking painted machine guns make Odin happy!
Like in the picture of Pat's AR barrel above the barrel will turn a dark reddish brown color, which is still mucho bettero than target indicator black. Like Mick said when you RTB you repaint the fucker.
The following pics are of ze PKM with around 34,000 rounds through that barrel without repainting(The gun has been repainted 3 times).
