    Anyone ever done it? Can it be done? What kind of paint needs to be used?

    I've done it. No special paint, just Krylon. I sprayed two coats of primer, then two black, then one coat of the "fake stone" paint-- I can't remember the name of it. It turned out very nice. However--if you are in love with the soft rubber feel of your stock, don't paint it. I guess the rubber absorbs some of the primer and it becomes hard, almost like plastic.
