I use Krylon rattle cans for painting synthetic stocks all the time.

Reasons:

1. I hate....say again....hate a black stock. In particular, I'm not a big fan of AR's, and cant stand all black rifles of this type.

2. Camo is better when one doesn't want to be seen. ( If it wasn't, then ghillie suits wouldn't be worth wearing, and hitting up rifles with rattle can paint wouldn't be worth the effort either.)

3. I don't have any use for the selector hole in the side of an M14 synthetic stock when it comes to fitting one for a semiautomatic clone, such as an M1A, M14S, or LRB's M14SA/M25.
I fill them in, prep the stock, then paint them.

I filled both of the stocks pictured below (selector lever holes. The paint used was Krylon "CAMO" brown.

a few of my painted stocks and laminates.
Good lookin stocks you have there.

Below pics are another example of why I have a reason to paint a stock.

1. Selector lever hole filled.

2. M14's flip up buttplate replaced with that of an M1 Garand. The slot was filled, then formed to match the stock's natural contour.

3. Front feral widened to clear gas cylinder.

4. Brownwell "brown" rattle can paint.

Fragout, looks like some nice work! The stocks look great. What did you use to fill them with. I ask because I recently did the same thing with an old wood stock. I used jbweld.

This is my marlin x7vh in 308. I used camo krylon. I decided to do this myself because it's an inexpensive rifle I plan on keeping forever. If this were a custom build I'd spend the money and have it professionally coated. Someday I'll have the barrel cut and crowned at 20" and buy a boyds wood stock.

I used liquid metal Permatex ( A sort of pre mixed JB weld) for fill, and also prepped the selector lever hole with a few small screws to support the fill and act as a sort of "rebar" inside the filled area. (It helps prevent the filled area from developing cracks later on and after shooting the rifle over time.

The 2 stocks mounted on rifles above were filled back in 2007, and have held up fine after thousands of rds thru the rifle.
( The M14S sees a lot of use, and is my primary hunting rifle.)

The rattle can paint makes it easy and fast to touch up, and/or add a different color. Rattle can paint makes it very easy to match camo to specific foliage in any area, and/or match seasonal changes.

It's also not much trouble to strip off if I ever get the urge for a professional Cerekote paint job in the future.

I have a Ruger SR762 that might end up getting a Cerekote coating in something like the below pattern.....
