    I am in Granbury, just got a Tikka .22lr with black composite stock, Can you spell BUTT UGLY? I've seen some remarkable dipped stocks at gunshows and would like to find someone who does this. Maybe even airbrushing? If nothing else I'll rattle can it olive drab or air superiority yuck or haze gray then put a squadron decal or five on it ;)

    I've just rattle canned my rifle and several other things (phone cases etc).

    I've bought alumahyde and like it, but also just used Rustoleum... both work but alumahyde is a tougher.

    Both took DAYS to cure and stop being sticky, but once really dry I've been happy.

    Disassemble or mask...

    I did a simple 2-color darker top (olive), lighter bottom (tan/khaki) with a few blotch of the the other color in the light/dark in the manner of German Ambush camo. A rolled up paper towel is perfect for this.

    All in all its subtle, simple and effective. Took a few seconds to brake cleaner off the rifle, a few minutes to mask of and maybe 20 minutes to do a couple of light coats and the dappling.

    Isn't it pretty to think so.

    Dallas Camo was the best in DFW for many years. He sold the business a couple of years ago. Those guys are darn near as good, just a bit pricier, but if you can describe what you want, they can do it.

    Krylon paint polyurethane topcoats.
    Several years of hunting use.
    I sold the dark one but still own the tan one.
