I didn't feel like taking the scope mount off, so I didn't put on the handguard (but it''s there).

I like the camouflage !

Is there a web site that would offer a way to print out the pattern that I could use to paint the stock on a rifle? And possibly the instructions for preparation of the synthetic stock, and applying the paint.

Thanks.

you sure you didn't just build the stock out of legos?

actually i think it looks really good.
how do you like the aimpoint on an M1A? never seen that before.

Wow! I love that. Did it come that way, did you do it, or did you have it done? I gotta have one.

Thats awesome! but how much better is it that than regular woodland camo painted on?

Why do you have to torture me like that? Huh? You sick sadistic ba**ard! That just put me over the top... now I'm going to have to go buy and M1A and put an Aimpoint on it!

Who made the suppressor? I'm thinking of putting a bi-lock on an M1A and using a Gemtech TPR-S suppressor.

That's not a suppressor, it's the handguard .

Yes, it's a homemade camo.

Nice Job!

Kudos on your great camo job!

By the way, you can see your toes in the bottom right hand of the photo.

How'd you do it?


It kinda reminds me of the one shooter's M14 in Blackhawk Down, who's name, I'm ashamed to say, escapes me.

Warning! If you own an M1A and start painting your own camo stocks it will become an addictive hobby.

How to do it.

Buy the cheapest USGI synthetic stocks you can get. I usually get them for $12.00 from Freds.

Fill in the selector cutout and and deep flaws with JB Weld.

Paint the entire stock, including the mag well and "inside" with a couple base coats of Krylon "military" paint. I use OD or Tan for the base coat.

Either free hand or with stencils apply your Camo pattern. I usually work lightest to darkest and use about 4 colors per pattern. I do better freehand than with stencils.

Apply 2 or 3 coats of a MATTE clearcoat to protect the pattern.


I recemtly completed a stock for my M1A scout in the USGI 3-Color Desert pattern.

It looks really cool. I may give it a try with
one of my AK's.

Excellent post!
Yes.

I used "Aluma Hyde II".

How did you freehand it? with a brush, or some kinda special adaptor?

I wanna try this! that looks really good!
Link Posted: 8/8/2002 1:33:56 PM EST
Really nice work. You should consider a new line of work with that sort of quality.

Did it with masking tape, scissors and camo-common sense. Shaded the areas with the idea of a light source (i.e.: make blobs, put dark spots on one side of the blobs).

The fact that it's made up of little squares makes it easy.

Have you made any woodland camo stocks? I'd be interested in seeing how they turned out if you did. Also, what brand paint did you use?

thanks
Link Posted: 8/9/2002 6:20:11 PM EST
that looks pretty nice, I'm too impatient to do stuff like that

here is my M1A with homemade camo paintjob....

71DL,
Very nice job. Good use of an Olive back ground with Tan & Black blotches.
What I would have done different is used Dark Brown with Black edge highlights where you have Black Blotches. That would more closely duplicate USGI Woodland.
Consider painting a Magazine to match too. I usually insert the mag in the magwell during the painting process to get a perfect match, just cover the feedlips with some tape first.

PS..
Did you clear coat it?
