I doubt it but you will probably get answers from a couple of people who will tell you how easy it is to do it if you have a dremel tool and Rustoleum paint in a rattle can. You can always reinvent sealing paint if you find the right audience. Your sympathetic audience is here.

I don't know how a plastic adhesion promoter would react to rubber..might melt it

Maybe Plasti-Dip. It works with most surfaces, and when you're tired of the color (or the color starts looking tired) you can peel it off.

There are also a number of paints designed for refreshing automotive plastic and rubber trim, if you're happy just going black.

About a year ago a batch of pink Hogue-stocked 10/22 Target (bull barrel) models hit the market for about half the price of the standard.

I bought one ($220) and emailed Hogue asking if the stock could be dyed or painted and they replied that they didn't know of any paint or dye that would stick to the rubber.
So that is the official stance but I'd look for youtube videos to see if anyone has done it.

I lucked out, once they saw I was a veteran they let me exchange the new pink stock for whatever color I wanted.

Thanks for the responses. I was looking at a $66 pink one and now I know better.

Depends on model, naturally, but $66 might be a great price even if you have to buy a new stock.
If it is a new bull barrel target I'd jump on it and get a Boyd's stock.
And I do love my Hogue OM, I think they're a nice stock for the money.
