    I have a favorite rifle with an ugly black composite stock. I have seen several shotgun stocks painted at the various shoots. Can anyone give me someone who I might contact. Thanks, Ron Bliss

    Also, Mike Ricklefs in Iowa is pretty good. You can visit his website here. Josh

    I had Mike Ricklefs paint a stock for a Beretta last fall. Beautiful work, reasonable price and quick turnaround.

    Mike Ricklefs did a Kolar stock and forearm for me. It was exceptional work. Would definitely use him again.

    I had a composite stock painted by a local bodyman. He had a little paint of the color I liked left from a car job and didn't charge me for the paint. Sanded, shot and baked for $35. Good Luck

    Leo got a bargain. I couldn't buy all the stuff and do it myself any cheaper.
    I recommend a clear coat over the color coat for protection.
