Duracoat laminate stock question.

1302 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Bumper
I've bought an unfinished Boyd's Tacticool and plan to duracoat it with shake'n'spray kit. My question is: do I have to duracoat inside of the stock like bedding and barrel areas or leave them bare wood?
So I have three options: leave them barewood, duracoat lightly with one layer, duracoat properly like outside of the stock with 3+ layers.
Thank you very much.

After ensuring that the rifle fits the stock properly, I would seal the entire stock with a polyuerathane spray. Then Duracoat the outside of the stock. I don't see any reason to spray the barrel channel or where the action rests.

Perhaps Bumper will chime in. His 77/22 WMR stock I carved from black walnut and he then duracoated it.I also believe he went over the Duracoat with TruOil as well.

That sounds about right. You definitely want seal the wood completeltly.

The best results are spraying the entire stock, barrel channel and all. You can then use this to protect and given even a harder finish.



Here is a Tacticool stock made by AZ Guy that I Dura-Coated.
