    Hi, how knackered is the stock (photo?).

    If getting it back to a nice oil finish is going to be impossible, and finding a replacement is proving hard(?) then one idea could be to use a fibreglass filler material like Nutech to fix and secure any breakages/heavy dings etc, sand it all back and paint it with a textured finish like DY-Mark or similar.

    You'd be amazed what sins can be hidden with ''bog & paint'', just ask a panel beater

    DY-mark is just a sandy textured spray on paint. It's just something I've seen used in the past to give a bit of texture under the top coat (anti-slip). You could use anything you wanted to really?

    Most paint finishes will wear eventually no matter if its Millspec or Duracoat. I've had great success with my Tikka M595 stock which was painted in 2Pac paint when I purchased it 8 years ago. The paint still looks new apart from a small wear point where my hand carries it just forward of the magazine.

    On my Remington its just matt black paint from Repco. It can scratch up a little when abused pushing through thick Manuka/Gorse and the like, but they're still making matt black paint...And really it still looks great after a years work.

    Or you could have a little fun like I did when I tried airbrushing for the first time.



    Just playing with an old BSA single shot, but I learnt some new skills


    Just go with what ever suits your needs, paint is cheap and you can always touch it up again later if need be.

    I would forget about the existing stock, the cheapest and easiest replacement would be a Boyds. These finish really well and are easy enough to get into NZ (just keep the order under $100.00). BOYDS The World's Foremost Supplier of Hardwood Gunstocks.. You probably want the classic stock (although you could go thumb hole etc).

    Total excluding freight. Just the price of the stock.

    I have the same in 308 with a wooden stock. They'll have to bury me with it.

    Why is it that with boyds they will not process any international orders over $100 was keen on getting a walnut stock for my marlin but have to settle for laminate when I go to do the order. What sort of freight charges does it cost to get a stock over from the US?

    Shot my first deer with a 110.



    I brought in a HS Precision carbon fibre stock for a Remmie from Brownells. Just a bit of paper work as it was $360 US, no major hassles. Brownells send you all the required paperwork. As long as the item manufacturer has the export license, Brownells can send it.
