Not sure if my way is the best but it works for me. It is funny you ask because I am just about to start a new one and was going to photo document the procedure I use.

I really like that stock daskraut...
that's a very cool and unique camo job. how did you paint it? looks like it was quite a tedious paint job if you did it by hand.
I would like to see some pics of the action in the stock also, if you please.....

3 hours to mask it with tape....I like the feathered edges on the tiger stripes, kinda breaks it up.

Just finished up a new camo job on my scope modified USGIstock.





Some close-ups of the modified comb and pistol grip





Not sure if I'm crazy about it, but it'll last for awhile. Need to get a quality bipod for the shooter!

Impact,
What did you use as a stencil on your stock? I've gota buddy with a duracoated 870 that he describes as a 'snakeskin' pattern, but I've not seen it yet. I figure it looks similar to yours, but was unable to get a pattern like that.

Thanks,
Doug K

All you need is a $10 airbrush from harbor freight and a small compressor for an air suply. You dont need a whole bunch of air like you do for driving air tools so a small compressor is fine. Then buy some paint, water based at first, have some fun and practice on cardboard for a few hours.

Once you discover all the cool patterns and effects you can do with the airbrush, get the paint you are going to use on your stock, and practice some with that too. (the thinning of the paint is the most important part, its practically like water consistency to spray well but not too thin or it will show through).
Just remember to always paint dark over light and to underdo rather than overdo at first, its easy to go nuts with the airbrush and make a modern art masterpiece without even half trying. In airbrushing a piece like a rifle stock, less is more. And always always clean the airbrush like new the moment you are done using it, if you ever want to be able to paint with it again!

Thanks from BrianJ
