I recently had a .375-06 barrel put on an mauser action of mine. I did a camo job on it this week.

Paint: Krylon Camo spray paint, ultra flat

camo: cut out stencils on Avery disk labels with exacto knife and stuck them on olive drab stock, then sprayed them with black for the splotches.

Doesnt the red x negate the purpose of camo?

ar15bubba-

Cool looking stock. I am curious to hear how long the paint lasts...

I am wondering how long it will last also. I want to overcoat it with somethig, but dont want to loose the flat look.

Why didnt you paint the barrel and action? Also, where did you get the stock? I picked up a mauser that I'm going to strip for the action.

I hope you don't mind that I lightened up the photo a bit. It looks real good. A .375 H&H Remington 700 BDL is in my future someday. Your .375-06 is the first one I've ever seen, though I've heard of the cartridge. Wonder if my Remington 7400 could be rebarreled to that one! Now THAT would be a worthwhile project.

You can find a flat clear that will help protect the finish. Look at local hobby stores for a dulcoat finish

Try a satin polyurethane...they come in water and non-water based types as an overcote.

Looks great. As for wear, I have a friend who did this to a 10/22 and an 870. Both have seen EXTREME abuse and the finish actualy seems to hold up pretty good. Good job.
