    What does it take to get a long lasting paint job on a synthetic stock? I've seen many painted synthetic stocks, but they have all looked pretty crappy, and the paint is worn or pealing. Can they be painted with a durable finish? Anyone have experience painting them?

    Prep work is 98% of the finish product. Poor prep work will result in a poor finish product. While i have never painted a stock, i have painted cars and the same thing applys. If i were to paint a stock, i would use a Urethane Car Paint. That stuff when applied properly with good prep work will be super durable and shouldn't chip or peel under normal circumstances.

    Yes but an Epoxy primer is recommended.

    WOW!!! He does very nice work and his price is amazingly affordable. I have seen smaller less quality paint jobs cost alot more. Very impressive. I saved that link for myself.

    Yes, he does fantastic stock paint jobs, but if memory serves, he only does them in the warmer months.

    I just finished my BT99 stock and when clear coat is done pics will be on my thread.

    I did paint some plastic paintball hoppers with the krylon fusion paint and playing speed ball is way worse then hunting.
