Camo dipping a shotgun with rubber grips
Beretta has rubber inserts on forearm and stock. Can these be dipped like with hydrographic film?
My gun is beat up the factory Camo pattern is very faded

re: Camo dipping a shotgun with rubber grips
There’s a local guy I follow on FB here that tapes off any rubber when dipping. May be a personal thing but I’ve watched several dozen of his videos and he never dips the rubber.

It wont stick to rubber or should I say when the rubber flex’s the coating begins to break. Which leads to the finish peeling.

Thanks for the response. I have emailed two places asking and got no response.
Will keep the gun as is or do a home paint job.

re: Camo dipping a shotgun with rubber grips
What I have done in the past and it worked pretty well is remove the rubber inserts. They are normally just glued on. If you take a heat gun and a plastic putty knife you can work it off without damaging the rubber. Once removed clean the remaining adhesive off the gun. Dip it then grab some emblem glue from a auto parts store and glue the rubber back on. Remember to lightly scuff up the area where it will be glued with fine grit sand paper
