Thread: painting a HS precision stock

    painting a HS precision stock

    Hi there

    Picked up my (new to me) .308 the other day and want to freshen it up a bit.

    Its fitted with a HS precision stock that has been painted with a textured green paint. But this looks a little worn and were it has been use the texture has gone.

    So im going to rub the stock back and re paint it. Looking at sticking with a green colour.

    So what are the best paints to use? If i can put some texture back in that would be even better for grip etc.

    Im after paints i can pick up loacaly from normal stores etc.

    Thanks
    Michael

    You'll need a finish that can put up with solvents and wear and tear, there's not much out there capable other than what I use.

    I can make it look like new again of that's any help.

    At what sort of cost's ?

    At the moment im looking for a cheap option as i have not even shot it yet. once i have used it more etc then i might look at a better option.

    What i do know is what ever is on it bar looking a little old has wore very well etc.

    Thanks

    Thanks for that, Not as much as i though. I will keep you in mind.

    Going to try and do it myself first and once i have used it a bit i might be in touch.

    Thanks

    Some HS stocks will crack if you put then in an oven for curing. Even at 50-60 deg C.
    Duracoat would be my choice.

    Oven???

    Im looking at spray painting it or are you refering to Jager SA's option?

    Just found what was used before.

    This is still looks ok even after 3-4 years of use so going to go with this for now, unless anyone else know a better option for the same sort of price.

    thanks
