    Decided to refinish the stock on my Veteran compact the other day.  The stock seemed to have below average finish from the factory, as the clear had runs and was sticky and was just generally bleh.

    I used a deglosser and coarse steel wool to remove the gloss and rough up the surface.  Debated refinishing with gun stock oil & wax, but  the wood grain was lackluster. And frankly didn't want to spend that much extra time on it. So, decided to go a different route.  Used a coat of primer and then a couple coats of Rustoleum textured paint   The lid showed it should have been closer to black, but this came out more grey in color for some reason.  May leave it, may do a different color, haven't decided yet. 

    Overall, finish seem pretty durable and will be easy touch up.  Feels great to the touch.  Def recommend if you're looking to do something different.

    That looks great. I may be doing my Wildcat soon. FX's soft touch is kinda slick when your hands get sweaty.

    I think it looks great and better than it would if it were black.  Nice job!  Have you ever tried the Tatsu?  I'm guessing they work about the same since the Tatsu is shorter but a little larger OD?

    Thanks for the kind words everybody. 

    Tweeter, I have not tried the Tatsu. I went with the Tanto since it’s the same diameter as the factory shroud. Can’t imagine it would make much difference. This gun is stupid quiet as is with the Tanto.

    I like it! Wonder if they have a tan color in that textured paint. I think that would look awesome! But really like the gray over a black personally.

    Oldmanblue, that is a killer butt pad. Where did you source it? Or are you one of those insanely talented people who just made it yourself in your garage?

    Looks great! I did a synthetic rifle stock with the same Rustoleum textured paint. It looks good, is semi-durable and gives great purchase wet or dry. A definite advantage to this paint is that if you get a scrape or gouge in the finish, you don't even have to prep it to repaint. You just spray some paint over the damaged area and it blends perfectly. It really is easy to touch up and is one of my favorite features of that paint on a gun stock. Your gun looks awesome and I'm sure you're going to love it!

    Rustoleum stone effects did nice stuff for my 22 synrod stock, looks good and very grippy.
