    I would use duracoat, or something similar.

    What color is the stock to begin with? I've used the duracoat kits on polymer parts and it works great. What color are you planning to use?

    Go with duracoat, I did a few stocks and they have turned out great. I even did a glock frame with Stippling and a year later its still holding up.

    If you want that modern breakup look you can take a mesh laundry bag cut a 1-2" strip off of it and spray that your accent color l, looks pretty cool theres a vid on youtube cant remember the name though.

    You could find some one that does hydro dipping. I've seen them do gun stocks wheels just about anything that will fit in the tank

    Rit dye works awesome for changing colored polymer parts to black. I used it on a bunch of magpul parts, and they were an exact match to the factory black

    Polymer needs to be VERY clean to have a finish adhere to it. Scrub with soap and water extra hot water and then wipe with alcohol, or light burnishing with a torch flame.
