    One of my 7mm-08s

    Well decided to change the look of my Savage 11F stock, wanted to go with a Tan Textured with brown and black flakes

    Started as

    Used three paints; Tan Primer for Plastic, Texture Tan with the color flakes, and finally matte Clear coat

    What items I didn’t take off the stock I wrapped them up in painters tape. I also use the dremel with a 120 grit sanding wheel to widen the barrel channel to assure no touching points on the barrel and get rid of the ridges from the injection molding process

    Started with a base of the tan primer that specifically adheres to Plastic

    2 coats of primer
    2 coats of textured paint
    4 coats of clear matte coat
    Minimum of 40 mins of dry time between painting

    I think you can see the textured flakes in this picture

    That is a very good looking job. It is a real improvement over the factory stock.

    at the range, Today took the Savage 11F 7mm-08 with the newly finished stock and put a Burris Fullfield II Ballistic Plex Reticle on top.

    It was a good day.
