    I have an older 700 bdl that is not very attractive but shoots pretty good. I have thought about bulding a custom rig, but can not bring myself to spend the money. Therefore, for the time being, I thought about buying a new stock and applying the teflon/moly oven cure paint from Brownells to beautify it and protect the action and barrel. Has anyone ever used this product? Is it easy to use? Are there any ways to cure it if you don't have a big oven? Does it look professional, or should I go ahead and spend the money and let a gunsmith do it? Thanks.

    I thought about doing just an action so I called Brownells and talked to one of the techs. He said there's no reason it couldn't be done at home using a kitchen oven but he also said that they highly recommend sand or bead blasting before applying. He said there's a chance of incomplete adherance if the surface is not roughed up first. that kinda turned me off to it since i don't have any way to sand blast.
