I know this should probably go in the 10/22 or refinishing but neither of those get much traffic so here goes....

I am thinking about buying said stock for my 10/22 and I was wondering if there is any way they can be painted.

I don't really think the paint would stick to the rubber all that well but they dont seem to sell the color I want.

So, what says the hive mind?

Paint won't take to the rubber.

Learn yo love black.

Try contacting Lauer directly, about if Duracoat will stick.

I doubt it, but that stuff sticks to a lot of stuff. I was wearing Crocs once, painting my shed, and I got white paint all over them. Next time I used black Duracoat, I painted my Crocs black again. It lasted about 18 months, and I had to repaint them, but they get a lot more use than a 10/22 stock.

The hogue OM stocks are available in a few different colors.

I have one in black and it's a great stock.

Fine I'll stick to my Vibram Five Fingers! Seriously though, the point remains, a good finish like duracoat, not baked of course, will likely hold up pretty well.

Not if they're Duracoated.

Speak for your own 10/22 stock!!

I suppose paint would flake off, but I bet it would stick for a good while. Hell, EVERYTHING sticks to this stock so paint should too.
