Question Painting a Hogue stock?



Log in to see fewer ads
I have been thinking about getting a Hogue overmolded stock for my 10-22. Problem is, they don't make a tan one. How much trouble would it be to paint one? What sort of paint? Wally World rattle can, or a more durable, specialized paint? Thanx.

You can try automotive bumper paint that has some flex to it, but I don't think it will hold up well over time. The areas around the bolt handle inlet and the bipod attachment areas are probably going to wear badly. I'd give Hogue a call to see what they think. They may have some ideas. Most likely, you'd save time and money by using a hard synthetic stock instead.

Spray paint is cheap. Sure it will wear eventually, but then you can just hit it again. Also the Houge ghilly green or whatever it's called looks more like a tan than green.

Spend a few extra dollars and get a Magpul X-22 stock. MUCH better than a Hogue.

It's stiffer, doesn't flex, adjustable LOP, shoulders better, more ergonomic, tighter fit, able to use standard or .920 barrels, built solid.....should I go on?

I actually prefer the Houge to the Magpul. The Magpul stock IME has to be bedded to get consistent accuracy.
