Stock Options for Remington Long Action Sendero SFII

Just purchased a lightly used Remington Sendero SF II in .264 Win Mag. Low round count but it came from Texas and has a professional Texas Brush Country Camo job on it. For the hills and prairies of South Dakota it just won't do. I was going to get it duracoated but then thought there may be other neat options out there. I bought this rifle more for a field gun so I wouldn't mind looking at some lighter options as well. I don't mind humping around an 11 pound gun but if there are quality options out there to avoid it, I wouldn't complain. Thank you all in advance for your input.

Post up some current pics of the gun with the custom painted stock...

As you commanded, I only have the pictures I received from the seller as the rifle hasn't made it to my FFL yet.

Here are those pictures

Wow..........Just...Wow............That's all I got to say.

I was interested in buying it if it was still black/gray web, but I don't think I'll be able to work with that one...LOL

I can't blame you one bit for swapping stocks. Good luck on your endeavor.

Yeah, that was my reaction too. I would almost call it gaudy. Then again, I've never hunted Texas. Price was right even with having to repaint/replace the stock so I couldn't pass it up.

Well, I changed the first part of my original post.....Figured it was nicer the way I left it. LOL

But yeah, it almost looks cartoon-ish. If they had gone with a more natural or realistic pattern it wouldn't be so bad.

That stock is a little bright and gaudy for my taste.I'd have a can of spray paint in my hand when I picked it up. Oh heck, as long as the rifle shoots good is what really matters, looks aren't everything.
