It's a fun project for sure and it's easy to redo if you're not satisfied with the results.
Awesome job! Which specific matte clear did you use? I did one and applied "matte" clear and it was way too glossy for hunting IMO. I repainted it and left the clear off. It looks much better and the finish holds up well. I don't mind if it wears a bit over time since it's only a half hour paint job when needed.
Looks great !
I've done some with the stencils, there's a million different designs;
I used Rustoleum matte clear , it's just a tiny bit to glossy for me. I'm going to try a different brand on the next one.
Never tried to paint a stock. Is there a particular type of paint that is best to use?
I use Duracoat, it's a 2 part epoxy paint that's super tough but i'ts more expensive and you need an aerosol sprayer, cheap $8 ones work.
I believe that's what I used also Rust-oleum 2X Ultra Cover matte clear. I thinking it might be hard to find a truly matte clear coat. If anyone knows of one, please let us know?
You can hold the matte clear too far away while spraying and it helps cut the gloss. You can also VERY lightly scuff it with a Scotch Brite pad or steel wool to cut the gloss.
I just use Rust-Oleum Camouflage paint in various colors, black, tan, deep forest green, brown, etc. whichever suits you. Just did my Ruger MPR and it looks pretty cool. Painted the butt stock, pistol grip, charging handle, dust cover, scope rings, hand guard, muzzle brake and magazines. Left everything else black. Improves accuracy
Great work, it looks Great
Will try that on mine and will see how it turns out
And can add up to 100 FPS.... especially in creedmoors !
Looks great, always like to see some home grown work
looking good. i've painted some of mine like that but i just used a crumbled up paper towel for each different color.
