Default 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.

Default Twilight Zone!!!

Voted for full paint job. That's only in Camo and you have the Gilly suit to go with it.

I like stainless firearms. Leave the steel alone.

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

Geez Will, he didn't say it was a Zombie rifle.

Shouldn't that be the Stockade "Leadchuck"?

I prefer the more traditional non-painted metal look.
