    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 isn’t in the worst of conditions. But I don’t 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 wouldn’t 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 it’s finished. Has anyone else done this with a wood stock?

    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.

    Thanks man. I hope your wife's gun turns out well too. And all I need now, after it dries, is a black butt pad, to put on my shell holder, and to go test it out..lol.. Im so happy with the way it turned out, for 15bucks, who would have known..lol..

    Finally done drying. Got a slip cover for the butt pad. I couldn't find any butt pads that were prefit, being that its a discontinued rifle from the 70s. lol
