Camo job
I want to do a camo job on my rifle but don't know where to start, I have a replacement stock on it now so I have the original stock to Mabie practice on. Looking for someone with some experience and know-how on DIY synthetic stock camo. What types of paint? Tips? Any info would be appreciated. Any suggestions on anything else other than camo? Something that looks great.

Do I order a kit for that? Or do I need to get it sent out to be done?

You can order a kit. YouTube has videos and there are a ton of options. Just google it. ;)

Yeah it holds up good. All the camo guns you see in stores are done that way.

I've been thinking about doing somethin similar to this to my AR.

nothing beats krylon fusion camo and a very porous sponge

this is how my stock started out,, it came in OD green so i used that for a base color

and a about 30mins with a sponge and some black and khaki and i now have this
doing it this way makes it look much more natural and less man made,,, remember camo is suppose to be random and works much better when done

I have a green chainsaw that I have set down while working and had a hard time finding. I just know I would lose a camouflage gun.

Go to Walmart and pick up a couple cans of the camo spray paint. Alternate stripes with blotches. I did that with my treestand and you can just barely see it at 100 yards. ;)
