What a phuggn mess. Why ruin a nice stock?

Just my opinion only.


I'd rather die in a BAD gunfight than a GOOD nursing home.

It's still the same stock. Color doesn't matter to a critter.

Hideous. Is this an April Fools joke?


My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my guns for what I told her they cost.

Is that an Anti-theft paint job so nobody will steal it?

The stocks I have painted look like warmed over Turkey Chitt, and I think they appeal to me more than the above Yellow, Black, and Red. I am prepping another to paint now, hopefully it comes out a little better. Rio7

I’m waiting for one done up in the infamous rainbow pattern. Not mine, of course.

I suggested to him that if I had another that I would consider the 7 colors of the rainbow in order. Maybe reverse order on the other side.

The stock sorta reminds me of some toned Morgan silver dollars that I used to own.

Folks all have their owns preferences. Always preferred olive drab myself.......drab and boring as it is.

For John Boy.....always give a customer what they want.......good job!

It's a 6.5-06 Ackley Improved. Killed lots of game with the cartridge, but this rifle is new. Stock is old, but I killed my first antelope with a different 6.5-06AI in this same stock when it was black. So I have to wait until this fall.
