Yes I painted it, I used brownells allumihide II but you could use anything you want. I did mine with an airbrush. I made stencils with small paper plates and an exacto knife, then just started spraying. I went lights to dark with my colors but you could go the other way.
I did prep the stock a bit after the first coat of paint, I saw things (imperfections) in the stock that came from the factory. I filled them in with marine tex, but I think bondo will work to. Then I sanded them sprayed on a little paint to see if it looked good.
Oh make sure you clean the stock, I used acetone before any paint was pit on. Make sure you pick an air dry finish.
