Decision between two stocks... Need help.
I have a bit of a problem. I am building a new rifle off my savage M116 LH action. And I want a vertical palm swell tactical style stock. Stockade has one, but rather expensive. What downsides would there be to buying a laminate, then painting it? As I don't like the look of laminate stocks, and can't afford the wood stocks I do like.
I was thinking to get one then have it hydodipped, probably spray on a base layer/sealer first.
Any idea how I can make a laminate stock tough like a synthetic (scratch resistant, water proof and not look like laminate?
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!
