1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I'm an 07 FFL and do hydro graphics. We have a ton of patterns available. This would be a great way to add some personality to PFS type stocks or just about anything else. Here's some rifle stuff done in Multicam and ATACS camo patterns. All prices are quoted on request and turn around time is 4 weeks.

    Trying to figure out this process makes my pea brain hurt. It is amazing to watch.

    Free bump up for Rich.

    It's kind of like magic! It goes into the tank looking normal and when you pull it back out it's covered in a pattern. It's pretty awesome!

    Rich,
    Can you do a wood grain pattern? How much would it cost to have a stock and forearm dipped? Thanks.

    There are quite a few wood grain patterns available. Here are 4 of the fancier wood grain patterns that are available.

    For a stock and forearm it would be $110 total.

    I had a stock done by Hydro-dip, and the results were fine.....the price was fine....but at the side panels, when the stock is bolted up to the receiver, the paint cracked and chipped away. Also, the thickness of the paint caused the top lever to just brush the paint every time the gun was opened, so the paint wore off there. You also need to allow for the forend fit to the barrels. They said there were also issues sealing the wood prior to dipping, that needed to be worked out. I ended up stripping the paint, and re-finishing.....but it did look good.

    I'd guess that if the dried paint retains some flexability, the cracking may be avoided.....but when the stock is cinched up.....I dunno.

    What a great, inexpensive, EASY way to cover a multitude of visual blemishes or turn a beater into a head turner.

    Richard, looks good. Can't wait to see how my spare K-80 trap stock looks with your Hydro-Graphics applied to the buttstock and forearm. Mike* (MH*)
