Anybody ever rattlecan your T1x stock? Seems too slick and boring for my tastes. Thinking of a more textured finish in OD. How did you prep for paint and what did you use?

I plan on doing mine, i've done a lot of synthetic stocks over the years

Degrease well,

krylon fusion is your best bet for plastic stocks. They have camo colors in it. I like to use a krylon flat clear over the top when done.

Now as far as texture, I like to use krylon webbing/marble spray. Has a great feel.

Here is a recent youth adl stock I did and a model 7

Looks good. I may attempt to do my Tikka 17. Did you use a stencil?

no stencil, occasionally we will use those plastic decorative ferns you can get at the craft store for some effect

Just a quick watered down wash with some dish soap, rinse well, or wipe them down with acetone.

S.E.M. offers paint for Automotive interior/exterior plastic pieces. I have not used it, but have seen it recommended many times.

Wipe down with acetone then go to town with the paint! I like to use a sponge to apply the paint. The sponge also adds texture to the final result. Here is a T3 stock I did.

I don't really like using paint on metal so when I get ready for the woods I'll wrap a little burlap and/or camo wrap around the barrel and scope.
