    The Rifle: Savage "Hog Hunter" (really like this rifle)

    The problem: Butt-Ugly green stock

    The project: How to make a green turd shine!

    After a major sanding (400grit) she was ready for paint.

    Using Krylon Fusion (textured) paint I give it 3 coats of black and for the indented areas I used Rust-Oleum dark brozne.

    I don't think you did too bad of a job. :s0155:

    The next question is, how well will it hold up after a "few" rounds through it?

    Good job!

    Tks,

    I used the black paint before on a number of items in my shop (even on wheels) and it's held up very well. I don't hunt so this will only see range duties and should do just fine. If I did hunt then I would of just left it as is or do a carbon fiber wrap on it.

    Nice. But the stock isn't made out of the same material as, say, your wheels. I'd be curios if/when it will start to bubble and [possibly] peel.

    Just curios as to how well it'll hold up.

    Again, nice job with the paint combo. I like it. :s0151:

    The black paint I use is made for plastic and just so happens to work well on wheels lol.. Did a set of wheels for a friend 3 years ago and paint still looks good on it and so far zero problems with the paint do to heat from the brakes.

    I just did my first stock paint using krylon. I am curious to see how it holds up. Did you do any clear coat? I used krylon matte clear (5 coats). It seems to feel quite durable. Time will tell.

    You didn't polish the barrel:p:p:p. You could tape off the checkering and do it in some plastic cote for texture? Ive done it on a couple wood stocks. I camoed my Ak with rustoleum and its been holdin up pretty good for a couple years now.

    I've painted 6 plastic and 1 wooden stock with various spray paints, Krylon, Rustoleum and Brownell's my prep was basically rubbing alcohol to clean the surface and plenty of drying time between coats. I have used the plastic paint as a primer and over shot with enamel in light coats.
    The paint has been durable and when it rubs off I just repaint

    Looks good.

    Kudos to you guys doing plastic stocks. I was leery enough a while back doing a wooden one.
