why not just buy a synthetic camo stock instead of risking ruining your wooden stock?

I've thought about getting a camo synthetic stock. Now I just have neoprene covers on my scope and stock. I have a loose cloth cover over the barrel and foreend. These are made of t-shirt type material and just slide over. You can cut them to fit your particular gun. The best part is they cost about $8.

if a deer can see your gun he should be laying in the back of the truck already
true enough, I have mine more for protection of the gun than anything else...gun is 15 yrs old, and barely any scratches on the stock at all, because I've used that cover since it was new....
fair enough then, it would protect the gun as long as you take it back off to oil the gun. I would have to think twice about putting tape on and getting a little rain on the gun.

FYI it's not to hide from the deer its to satisfy my taste...

I have had three different kits on my gun for the last5 years and if anything it protects the finish of my gun from scratches and what not.....I don't like synthetic!!!

I'm still uncertain in what I want to do... Paint it or just buy a new stock... Or take it to a Gun smith and let him paint it... If anyone here is a gunsmith please tell me if the paint will hurt my weapon... What would I put on it to protect it from rust? CLP I think is supposed to protect your rifle from rust, but I haven't noticed.

I'm of the opinion that every last thing you take to the fielddoesn't need camo. I wouldn't camo the gun unless it has some exceptionally shiny surfaces, although light can reflect off of any flat surface. You may just want to dullthe stock a bit with fine steel wool, which shouldn't hurt the value any more than painting it.

I have a Wingmaster that I gota great deal on, because some guy spray painted the whole thing brown and green. I'm in the process of stripping the paint off, which will double the value of the gun.
