    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:

    Took my first shot at painting a black stock this weekend. My son wanted his Savage 16 SS 7mm08 to be brown with black webbing look and a "sandy" feel. It turned out better than I was expecting for a first attempt.

    First I degreased/de-oiled the stock with acetone. Then I lightly sanded with 1500 emory paper, followed by a wipe down with acetone. When fully dry I applied 3 light coats of Dupli-Color CP199 Clear Adhesion Promoter Primer spray according to instructions; and then applied 3 even coats of Rust-Oleum Dark Brown Textured Spray (30 min between each coat). After 30 min I applied Krylon Black Lava Marbelizing Spray to taste. After 48 hours dry time I lightly rubbed with 0000 steel wool.

    I am going to give it 2 weeks to fully cure, and will then apply 2 coats of Brownell AlumaHyde II epoxy-based clear matte sealing coat and finish with light brushing with 0000 steel wool.

    Lots of awesome work on here! I thought I would share my first attempt. Butler Creek synthetic stock that I re-did on my Howa 1500. I think I will do a few more this way.

    I as sitting here thinking, what kind f fool put's paint on a walnut stock? Then I remembered, I have two plastic stock's that I took off other rifles and don't use. I might have to try that! Some of those look really nice but when I touch them, feel like plastic!

    Paint and a layer or two of clear coat does change the feel of the plastic. It may not feel as good as wood but it improves the normal Tupperware feel from the factory.

    I was going to do one in this “stone” effect, but the only spray cans I found were indoor, not indoor/outdoor so I baulked. Did you find a brand that was outdoor?

    For my daughter's first centerfire I bought a beat to hell old Savage. We re-barreled it to 7mm-08 and made some other modifications. The stock was laminate that had a split in it. I pinned it back together and duracoted it. Here is the result.
