Looks good!
Are the black areas just the standard stock, or did you paint on some kind of texured coating?

Thats the standard stock. Originally I was going to to it all green, but I decided it would look better a little more broken up

That looks sweet
I'm going to have to show that to Shelly later today she may want to do something similar with hers

what did you spray it with ?

Krylon camo with fusion - olive drab

Then I touched up the black areas with this:

The touch up pen matches the stock perfectly

It looked better before.
It's probably just the bipod and sling though.

I like the color and the black stripe is cool but the other black parts look a bit like shark gills to me. Shark rifles might be the next big craze though, who knows? :online2long:

All the areas that are black are textured and sit a little lower in the stock than the green areas. I did some so I had to do the rest also or it wouldnt have looked right
