Perfect. Looking at landscapes and foliage, that's the ticket, open with vertical elements. Well done!


Thanks! I like it. Considered adding black and or brown but left it as is. KISS principle. Barreled action is FDE and the scope is OD.

Two tone can work. Look around the landscape, at wildlife habitats, from dozens to hundreds of yards. You generally don't see little smudges of multiple colors a couple of inches in size. You see bigger pieces of color like open hand or head size. Just stocks are too small to get much on there and we look at them up close. Just ideas. These were years ago.

Camo? The older I get, the more I lose -er- "misplace" things. If I ever get a synthetic stock it's gonna be neon orange or magenta. I really like magenta....

I'm working on a concept for battery powered strobe for it - maybe operated off a signal from the iPhone, gps, or sat phone....A loon call would be nice too, tho that might be misleading for moose hunting.Should be fine in the high-up, high plains, or desert.... smile

Is it April yet?

I have a Savage with a birch stock that I've been thinking about painting. I really like your rifle with the green camo with B&W webbing. If I paint it that is likely the look I'll try for.

No, I'm not a Ruger bigot - just an unabashed fan of their revolvers, M77's and #1's.

The giraffe pattern someone had awhile back was pretty nice looking.

I hope this one catches on and potentially retires the black-web thing. It's time we all stick a fork in that one. laugh

I agree, thanks a nice looking stock Chris, I'm planning to take the same route with my .257 Bob Hunter. How did you prep the stock before painting? Also, that's a neat and clean looking sling - what is it?

Thanks,
PigGuy

I've painted several. For metal parts I think Aluma-Hyde is better than krylon etc. For stocks it all works...
