Painted or camo stock pics?

I'm gonna try my hand at painting a stock. Any tips or pics you could share to make my first attempt more fool proof (or just give me some ideas [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]) would be appreciated. thanks-Duff

    I am doing the same thing on a Howa SS Syn Stock 22-250. Got a base coat of Krylon on it now. Would also be interested in what the forum says.

    Here is HS precisions "prairie grass"



    John Noveske's "Southwest Oregon"



    Lex Webernick's "brown camo." This is the stock I'm sending to Kirby Allen for my new .270 Allen Mag.



    "Sand" by HS Precision and "3 shaded of brown grass" by MG Arms



    Here is a sight that might give you some other ideas. You can look all through their gallery and see what other folks have.

    Duff:

    If it’s a job that you’re going to do yourself, you can get a lot of ideas over on "Snipers Hide" .

    If you want to see a lot of different blends and patterns from McMillan, go to "24 Hour Campfire" and search for “swirley” , "mcswirley", or variations of same.

    Derek’s pics and site reference show a lot of combo and possibilities also.

    I’ve got a combo pattern coming on a McMillan that hopefully will be here soon.

    Duff and Homer,

    I sent you two an e-mail with the pictures of the gun that I painted. I think it turned out real well for my first paint job. I am proud of it.
