    One of my 7mm-08s

    Well decided to change the look of my Savage 11F stock, wanted to go with a Tan Textured with brown and black flakes

    Started as
    Savage11F7mm-083-24-10ng.jpg

    Used three paints; Tan Primer for Plastic, Texture Tan with the color flakes, and finally matte Clear coat

    What items I didn’t take off the stock I wrapped them up in painters tape. I also use the dremel with a 120 grit sanding wheel to widen the barrel channel to assure no touching points on the barrel and get rid of the ridges from the injection molding process

    Started with a base of the tan primer that specifically adheres to Plastic

    2 coats of primer
    2 coats of textured paint
    4 coats of clear matte coat
    Minimum of 40 mins of dry time between painting

    I think you can see the textured flakes in this picture

    Ready to remount the scope and take her to the range for some fun.

    Nice! Looks like a factory job, like the color. I really like how it looks with iron sights.

    I bought this rifle specifically cause I like the iron sight looks on it....I typically have a Burris Fulfield II mounted on it....but the Irons look awesome

    BTW I love SAVAGE!

    Thanks

    Looks great! Another fan of the seldom seen iron sights on these Savages.
