    Hydro Dipping Stocks?

    Weve just purchased our Eldest Daughter a .22 for her 10th birthday and I was going to plasticoat the stock in pink/purple or something but I've been looking at this hydro dipping thing. Has anyone done it? who did you use or was it a DIY job? Any help would be great. Thanks

    Yes. Works really well if done properly. Pretty durable. Will scriatch off if treated poorly on rocks, but will easily handle scratching from bush, branches etc. Get a couple coats of mat clear coat put over top to provide protection and cut down on reflection/glare.

    Have used a couple of different guys. The best service I have had was from NZ Hydrographics in Auckland. I contact him through facebook.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Did my stock and suppressor a couple of years ago. Great service, quick turn-around and at a reasonable price.
