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.

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

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. ;)
