Default DIY Tikka gun stock painting & webbing

Recently picked up a practically new Tikka 308 as a new mountain rifle. Have more plans for it but resorting to re-doing the stock at this time.

After dissembling the gun, I lightly sanded the stock instead of using a primer. Then wiped it off with acetone to prep the surface.

Then base sprayed with this tan Rust-oleum product which added a textured grippy surface. I used two cans at $6 each to ensure good coverage.



I typically gave several hours between coats or even overnight for drying/curing.

Then I went to Amazon for the black & white webbing or marbelizing products.
The white 4oz Krylon was $10 & the Montana black was $20.
The matte clear topcoat was $5



I started with the white webbing. Id recommend a little demo or practice on some cardboard before finalizing on your stock. The nozzle can be adjusted for technique preference. Theres some good YouTube videos out there too from Montana.


I later added the black webbing



I then sprayed about 3-4 coats of the Rust-oleum topcoat.
I did have to sand out some inner spots of the stock for the rifle action to fit snuggly back in, guess I could have taped it before spraying too.

I reassembled everything & it feels great in the hand with plenty of surface texture that will come in handy on a cold & snowy Colorado elk or mule deer hunt.

Just thought Id share my experience here in case someone wanted to try this.
