Stock painters?

Anyone have a refernce for someone to pain a synthetic stock near either Clintonville (Venango Co), Sharon, or Pittsburgh? I have a Browning A-Bolt that is BEAT up and I'd like to dress it up a little. I live in Clintonville, currently work in Pittsburgh, and will be starting work in Sharon in January, so any location will work.

Don't let our differences defeat us.

This guy does good work, but you'll have to ship it to him if you are willing to do that.

Re: Stock painters?

What are looking for? You could send to Liquid Illusions in Chambersburg, they Hydro dip stocks, For a hunting rifle thatís what I'd do. You could make it look like anything from Carbon Fiber to a piece of marble. Camouflage or fire. High Gloss or Matt Finish. Endless choices with Hydro Dip it's affordable and durable too.

I didnt see any pricing. Do you know any ballpark figures on a rifle stock?

Re: Stock painters?

8 bucks, 1 hour, some foliage from the back yard, and you too can have the rattle can camo that so many people pay BIG money to do... it ain't hard and I'll tell you right now, i do NOT set my shotgun down in the woods now for fear of not finding it. Not the PRETTIEST - but the camo is functional, and cost me literally 8 bucks for 3 cans of camo krylon.

Re: Stock painters?

Jay,

What did you use to get the "snakeskin" look? I really like that

Re: Stock painters?

overlayed a piece of net from a bag I use when trout fishing in a stream. it's just a laundry bag type thing. put the dark color down, then lay the net, overspray with the light color. the opposite treatment is cool looking too.

Actually, you can see both effects in this pic. dark over light is on the scope, and light over dark is on the slide. you can't go wrong with this, and if you screw it up, lay down a new base coat and hit it again

I agree jayd4wg knows how to paint up a gun... And set a mean trigger also... And yes, you wont wanna set your gun down for fear of losing it, the paint job is that good when you look at it in person...
