stock textured grip?

I was wondering how to make my forearm and grip area of my stock more grippable? I thought of adding some kind of bedliner material but also adding some course sand into the mix to give it more texture. Anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks, I should have been more detailed. The stock I am using will be a synthetic stock from B&C.

well here are some thoughts

I used undercoat for trucks on the butt of my M1A but it pealed off after a few months after that I got some role on bed liner for the local auto parts store and some rocks from my wifes fish tank (dont tell). I rolled the stuff on the butt and sprinkled the rocks over the top. Then I used some black Krylon to paint the rocks it worked great for keeping the butt in my shoulder during rapid fire.

Another option would be heat stippling but I would use caution in doing this as I dont know what the B&C stock is made from. I did it on my Glock frame and the old stock that came with my savage but it was plastic.

You can thin down a little epoxy then apply it to the desired area using a sponge... I've never done it, but I've seen a few that were done in this manner and it worked pretty well.

Shooting times had an article in the last year or so that talked about stippling(sp?) a wood stock with a common nail. The picture they showed in the magazine looked really nice. They used a checkering tool to make a nice defined border. I bet this would work well on a plastic stock as well.

Hi guys, brand new here. I've seen this question asked and answered on a tactical forum. I hope it's OK to post a link to that thread. The way it's done is with stock bedding material stipled with a plastic bag and then the shap edged sanded off. It works extremely well.

Here is the link:
