I know that all you trap shooters out there probably won't know but the sporting clays and skeet shooters might. I have to get a new stock for my daughters' Browning 325 since she's outgrown it. What I'd like to know is what type of paint is used by the stock makers out there that are painting stocks? It was painted originally because it was offered by Browning as one of the Women's Sport Shooting Foundation (I think) guns that was turquoise in color and she'd like me to repaint it pink. She's a skeet shooter so cut her some slack about the color.

The game plan is to get a Wenig New American and fit it to her and then paint it but I don't know what will hold up.

Thanks.

Tom

In a previous thread I stated that I went to Maaco and the manager painted an 870 stock for me in Candy apple red like the Mustang car in the 60's. They used auto paint, then they use some type of auto gloss. A friend of mine had one done in purple too. They looked fantastic.

Thanks all, I was leaning in the direction of automotive paint but wasn't sure what the stock painters out there weere using. I've got a few friends in that line of work so I'll pull in a few markers.

I call this gun the Oregon State Beavers SX-1. I sold Chuckles the Oregon ducks Stock. This looks good because the guy who paited it is a high end auto body paint man. he spent more time prepping then he did painting. This thing is so orange you can't believe it. beaver fans love it! Jeff

I am painting one as I write this. One coat is in the process of drying. I shoot a Ljutic with a PFS. So I have a wood forearm, plastic and bondo grip, and a custom made cheek piece, I made out of different wood. So I paint them all. This is the third time. I have two identical three piece stocks in terms of material. I use Auto-Air color in a air-brush. Then finish with commercial Urethane. It will stay looking nice for about a year. So I repaint every winter. It's the same paint you will see on the trick motorcycle paint jobs. And it's easy to use.

Here's my "bowling ball" gun as the jealous guys at the gun club call it. Painted by Mike Ricklefs a couple of years ago. I love it!
