Congrats on picking up one of Ernie's XP's. Txbrass/Cody does a top notch job on cerakote. I would have him do your XP in the colors he did his new Cyclops. That looked sharp and great colors for hunting.

Well, the barrel and action of this XP was painted w/ Brownell's Alumahyde II (matte OD green), not Cerakote, but I thought I'd share it anyway. The stock was painted w/ various Krylon and Rustoleum camo paints. Remington XP-100 in 7-08.

Gary T, that is a very nice set up and coatings. Is there a stencil for the digital pattern on the stock? I really like that pattern. I was thinking of doing one of my Encores in a color like that and the same pattern on my stock.

McClura,
Thanks for the kind words. I bought my digital stencil pattern from Bulldog Arms. Unfortunately, the website now says their stencils are available only from Brownell's. Brownell's only carries one pattern (it's not the digital) and it's out of stock. I recently bought some new stencils from Black Jax Camo, but haven't used them yet. The stencil look to be good quality. The stencils I used in the above pic were "male" type. The new ones are "female" type. I was disappointed that I had some chipping of the paint on the 7-08 stock. I think I applied too many coats of paint. I applied multiple coats of each color to the entire stock. If I use the male type again, I'll apply the paint only in the spots where I'll apply the stencils. After 3 seasons of hunting, the paint job otherwise held up pretty well. I touched up some small spots of wear on the barrel a few weeks ago w/ the Alumahyde II.


Good luck and good hunting.
