Painting Stock or whole rifle?
 
Ok so I am building a parts list for a semicustom home built Hunting rifle.

The action is a savage Varmint with detachable mag and a .473" bolt face. I havent decided on caliber yet. Might do a 260 rem or a 25-308 (25 Souper). Not sure yet. Thanks to switchbarrel I have my stock a Stockade Woodchuck.

Optics are not set yet either.

Back on topic I am using a stainless action and a stainless barrel. I am just wondering if I should have them both painted together or leave the metal alone.

I personally don't care for the barrel or action being painted, although one of my rifles is that way.

The stainless will look awesome with the stock you picked.

Twilight Zone!!!
 
Voted for full paint job. That's only in Camo and you have the Gilly suit to go with it.:eek::)

I like stainless firearms. Leave the steel alone.

We are not Looking for a gun that can be seen a mile a way. You need to see the future. You don't give away your position with a high lighted Barrel. Keep these in your Safe. I'm Lookin to keep my head intack!!!! Shoot first and answer Questions later!!

I voted stock only. I've never really liked the look of rifles that are totally painted. Just my opinion.

Shouldn't that be the Stockade "Leadchuck"?

I prefer the more traditional non-painted metal look.

I voted "Paint the whole dang thing".
