Thanks, I'm very happy with how it turned out. In fact, I have a HS Precision Sendero stock that I've converted to left hand. I'm going to finish it the same way.
In comparison, I couldn't say. I've not handled one of Kevin's painted stocks.
But, I'd say that the finish on mine is quite durable. The Plastikote stuff sticks quite well to the gel coat of the stock. It also absorbs the poly real well.
The only problem I had was that I did it all last winter. It took forever for the paint and poly to cure. Once it did, it is very hard.
I also like the texture better than the web finishes.
