I'm painting my wood rifle stock.

So today, I got bored, very bored. I went to walmart, bought some primer, some textured paint and sand paper. Now, the stock I have isnít in the worst of conditions. But I donít care too much for the wood look. Unless its a really nice piece of wood. Also, if this was a higher dollar gun and stock, I wouldnít be doing this. Its a good working Mossberg 800a 308. I started out by sanding off the glossy finish with a 100grit paper, then washed it, then sanded with 220 grit, soft as a baby's back side, washed it again. I'm using a white primer, and then a dark gray and speckled white, textured finish. I'll post pictures probably tonight tomorrow when itís finished. Has anyone else done this with a wood stock?

Here are some pictures. Let me know what you think.




I'll have more pictures, with higher quality. I will post how I did it if anyone would like to know.

Yeah, thanks man. But no drips, and its textured paint and I love the flat look it has. I was more worried that the primer was going to drip, but it did pretty well, I only sanded a few small spots. That primer went on so smooth, and the texture covered way better than I was perpared for..lol..

That dang textured paint takes a long time to dry, on my drive home some of the paint got messed up, just touch it up tomorrow and stop going insane over it. Dang OCDness when it comes to my projects..lol.. Thanks guys, Im glad you like it.I think it looks so killer and much better than the wood, although, it wasnt a horrible look in the first place.
