Thread: Synthetic stock finish

    Synthetic stock finish

    I am struggling and would appreciate thoughts/experiences on this, I have a synthetic stocked rifle that has been used a lot, three barrels worth of a lot. The problem is the stock has started to become shiny and a little bit slippy to aid in a positive grip that I feel comfortable with. I dont really want to replace the stock as it fits well and is comfortable to use. So my plan is to look for a finish that I can apply myself or have applied that will aid the grip of the stock and reduce its shiny appearance and look right of course.

    Not a lot to ask for??


    Anyone any directions to point me in or maybe you have had something done similar.

    Thanks

    Leon, it depends on what material the stock is made of.
    The cheaper factory stocks are injection moulded mostly with PE or PP materials that just don't take paint of glues well.
    You can just about forget spray painting or adding stippling to these type stocks.
    Composite stocks are easier to work with as they glue or paint well. Duracoat tactical range paints seem to be a bit grippier
    than their normal range of paints.

    Its a composite one Edi

    The shine is a secondary problem to be honest Neil its the lack of grip thats the main problem I need to deal with.

    Thanks for the thoughts though gents.
