Use Brownells Alumahyde. It works well on synthetic stocks and it is designed to be used on guns so it is solvent resistant. Gives a great professional finish but preparation is key. Rough up stock a little with fine steel wool or sandpaper and clean up well with acetone or degreaser of some sort. Make sure you are spraying at a temp of over 65 degrees or it will not flow out of the can. Takes about a week to fully cure, the warmer the better/faster. VERY durable professional finish that works as well on plastic as it does on metal.
Here are a few guns done with Alumahyde II:
