300WSM Stock

Alright yesterday i traded a guy a Savage 17 HMR for a Savage Model 11 300WSM. After i get a new gun as like most people i sat around and messed with it for a while. The wife come in from shopping and i showed it to her. You know what her reply was. "It looks just like all the other ones you have". Hmmm.... that got me thinking and so i started looking around and sure enough i have about 4 or 5 other guns with the same old black synthetic stock. Well i had read an article on here a few days ago about painting your stock and never really thought about it until today when Darrin posted his picture of the stock that he finished painting. I turned to the wife and started asking her questions about how to paint the stock. She said i only design quilts not guns. Well i figured if you are a designer then you are a designer so i sat and pondered how i was going to go about it. Then it hit me. I could break off a branch of one of the evergreen trees beside the house and use that as a template to give it the more realistic look. I literally done this in about an hour and a half. Let me know what you think.

Re: 300WSM Stock

That looks very good. The main thing with painting is getting the rifle to match your colors that you hunt in. I mostly hunt among trees, so blacks, dark browns and olive drab are perfect with a little light color for what would look like light hitting a tree. Looks very good. Keep up the good work.

Re: 300WSM Stock

Nice Job sniper it appears you are somewhat creative I suggest you study up on what it takes to bed a rifle stock and the next time you have it apart do that. That way you can have o rifle that Not only looks good but shoots good also. The process is not tough to do.
