Camo Dipping

Postby TeocTom » July 19th, 2011, 6:39 am

I am looking to request a Remington Shur Shot stock for my 20 ga. 870 and the only color that it comes in is BK. I am not sure whether to spray paint it camo, or to have it dipped.
Anyone have any recommendations on
1. If I want to have it camo dipped, who could I send it to?
2. If spray painting it, what type of paint would be the best to stick to plastic, not glare, and not scratch real easy?

Hoping that someone will have some tribal knowledge that they can share.

If you paint it HS Strut sells a removable paint kit that holds up well. I paint all of my guns if they dont have factory camo on them. If you scratch them or wear some off you can touch it up in a minute or two.

Hey TeocTom,

I agree with BluMtnGobbler, I don't think dipping it yourself would be all that difficult, especially if you just dipped the stock and forearm. You can dip the barrel and the receiver but you would want to plug both of those parts up. Here's a video on youtube I found a while back about camo dipping and I think the guy does a great job at explaining how it works, how to do it correctly and how to achieve the best results. I'm big into do it yourself projects like this so it might be an option that you could consider!

I'd check this out:

IME, it's a challenge to get paint to adhere to plastic, so this sounds like just the thing. They have enough satin browns, blacks and greens that you should be able to do a decent camo job with it.
