    Here is my model 7 7-08. I used basically the same paints you did except for the khaki color and webbed paint. After one season of use it has held up well. The scope is off because it's headed to the smith for a trigger job and ceracoating.
    Looks great. I will be doing khaki/black web for the next project. Thanks for sharing the pic.

    I did this with my T3 super lite. I just went over the grit with another coat of paint then did the webbing, and finished with the matte clear. It has plenty of texture to it. I really like MinnesotaHunters stock, the next one I do may be like that.

    I like that "gritty" look too.

    MinnesotaHunter: What did you use for that project?

    This is the stuff I used. I primed with Duplicolor self etching primer.

    I was inspired to try this on a varmint rifle I have. I had a little trouble finding the marbleizing spray and ended up ordering it online. It was already painted with textured beige colored paint so I scotch brighted it and sprayed on the webbing. I had some clear on the shelf that was gloss, but I am not sneaking up on prairie dogs so I went with it. I was satisfied with how it turned out so I am going to try it on a black stock with white webbing. So thanks aws1963 for the inspiration.

    Looks great. My next project is a coyote/black web.

    That marbleizing spray is hard to find. I actually found it in an Ace Hardware and bough all 3 cans there.

    Craft stores usually carry the web paint. We have Michael's locally (kind of). Hobby stores also. mtmuley

    I really like the look at that grit texture on a stock. Good job!

    I did this one awhile ago. Still holding up well after many trips. Have a Ruger that needs a paint job but haven't decided on a pattern yet.

    It has been my experience that the web paint is near impossible to find anymore and that Krylon stopped making it. Someone correct me if I'm wrong; but, that is what my research from a couple of years ago yielded. If you can find the marbelizing, nab it. It is nearly the same thing anyway. I bought mine for a good price at misterart.com. Their customer service was great too. I bought 6 cans. One arrived defective. When I contacted them about the defective can, they immediately shipped me another.

    I had a heck of time finding the marble paint. And I'm in Sacramento. Bought the 3 cans I found at ACE.

    Very nice looking stocks. On the grit texture do you still clear coat it or would that defeat the purpose of the grit spray?

    My stock was grit painted and the clear coat pretty well buried the grit. The web paint provides some texture but not as grippy as the grit paint.

    I have used Brownells Matte Clear Aluma-Hyde II (spray-on epoxy pain) as overcoat on mine and they've not canceled out the grit:



    I like doing NULA-style stripes too:

    In spite of all that's wrong here
    There's still so much that goes so right
    And beauty abounds?

    Don't you wanta thank someone for this?
