Hydro-dipped

Looks pretty cool. Is this comparable in price to what some of you have done to your rifles?

Re: Hydro-dipped

Looks awesome!
Looks reasonable to me.
$200 for a rifle
$100 for a stock

Re: Hydro-dipped

They sure have some wild patterns!

I have a two hydro-filmed stocks done by Bell and Carlson. One is a Ti stock the other a lightweight Ruger McMillan. The material that B and C uses is pretty darn tough. Many gun cleaning solvents have dripped on the finish with no ill effects. I have the natural gear and freedom tan. Bell and Carlson

One interesting thing I discovered is that you can write on the surface with a sharpie of various colors to change the effect. By using a patch with some brake clean solvent the color can be blended in. Once dry it is quite durable. If you get tired of those colors you can easily remove by rubbing harder with a patch of brake clean.

B and C's Snow natural gear would be a great one to use for color changes.

IIRC the price was $60 to cover a stock.

Re: Hydro-dipped

Found this thread on a search....

I am looking to get my Tikka T3 stock either hydro dipped or duracoated.
I like the Natural Gear camo just wondering if it would look really good with a Stainless Barrel as I dont want to camo the action/barrel.

Any more pics?????

Here is a pic with the natural gear camo done by Bell and Carlson. The SS barrel is painted with Krylon camo paint. The paint can be removed easily with some brake clean and a rag.
