Hi Everyone,

Just finished this up!

A forum member contacted me and wanted me to Build-UP a USGI Custom Stock in the “Captain B” desert camo pattern.

A lot of work/effort goes into each stock...
  • Strip and prep the stock & handguard - paint underside of handguard
  • Make repairs, wet sand do final prep
  • Fill the full auto cut-out and sand smooth
  • Reinforce the forearm with carbon fiber strips & rods - coat with marine-tex and smooth
  • Refinish rear hardware and install newly parkerized flapper
  • Paint a custom three color desert camo pattern on stock, Handguard and Bradley Riser

After all the work you have a stock with 3 layers of DuraCoat and a bunch of templates and no idea what the stock is going to really look like!

Here is a pic after finishing the airbrush work and before pulling the templates.....

I was asked about the DuraCoat Colors......

Tactical Desert Mint
Tactical Desert Brown
Tactical Desert Beige

I prefer the line of tactical line of colors for camo as they retain a nice color, but have not reflective value which is good for camo!
