Thread: Hydro dipping

    Hydro dipping

    Has any one had this done to a stock?

    considering getting my M595 stock done just too tidy it up coz cnt justify the large cost of a replacement stock.

    I have been emailing a company called hydro-graffix anyone heard of them?

    Was going too go for carbon fibre pattern but not totally commited. Going wait see prices etc first before diving in.

    any info would be great.

    Cheers

    Hi Pablo.
    My 30-06 has a H-S Precision Stock that I had dipped in satin carbon fibre.

    The company near York did it. £150 but that was a few years ago.

    It has stood up to some harsh use without too many problems. It is quite brittle so I have chipped it a bit where the bipod fits and it has a few scratches but I suppose any finish will suffer at the hands of a ham fisted Yorkshire man .

    I preferred the satin finish to the gloss.

    Yorkie.

    If it's the one in Maidstone I was going to get them to do a scope for me. They were not happy with the quality of the transfer that I wanted so offered to paint the scope instead which has proved to be long lasting. The work on the website looks very good and I would consider using them again but I would like to have a look at the set up. Apparently it's a security risk to visit!
    TBH I have had quite good results with paint but if you want a good job paint wise Jäger, or valkyrie seem to have good reputations.

    I had a black synthetic Tikka T3 synthetic stock dipped by a company called Aqua Graphix in Gwent, this was done in April 2014 and to a high standard, I chose an autumn Camo pattern and I was very pleased with the result. The rifle stock had four coats of laquer to seal it, I chose a satin laquer finish for mine. I paid £85 for it to be done. If you do a search on my threads you will see that I have previosly posted a thread about the whole process

    I have included a couple of photos of my rifle.

    Ive had a stock action and scope done, it looked great but it drowned my scope, so I'll not recommend the guys that did that. The coating is still solid and looking good, much better than the tired old wooden stock that's underneath.
    I would recommend these guys, not used them myself but an OCD gunsmith I know has used them and rates them, it's one of his in blue in the gallery.

    It was a couple hundred quid but that was a few years ago and not by the guys in Scotland. Drop them a line, they're used to doing stocks so should be able to give you a figure quickly.

    Ive had a couple of stocks done by the team at Bad Boy - yes one of my stocks is in their gallery pics.

    They are very very good at what they do and id certainly recommend them for service, attention to detail and customer care - price list is on their website and it was around 100 for the stock including postage.

    I'll use them again and would choose them over "better known" coating companies who let me down when I need a couple of jobs turned round pdq…..
