Spray grit paint
Has anyone ever used Brownells spray paint grit ? I’m repainting a fiber glass stock for a bolt pistol and would like have the stocks grip to have more grip to it. The gun is chambered in 6 PPC so it’s not a recoil monster.

I havent used Brownell's paint but went to Wally world and have used Rustoleum
multicolor textured paint in a can for a Savage Striker grip.I am pleased with the way it looks and does give more texture. I used the brown can on the Striker. I did put a couple coats of a satin clear over it as well.

I also bought RUST-OLEUM. Bought a self etching primer and the Dessert Tan textures with black & white specks and a clear Matt over finish. The stock came with a black pebble paint on it, but when in sanded off the finger groves exposing the foam core, I patched that with an epoxy resin which ran down the the side of the grip so I had to sand off a lot of the pebble finish. Now I want to add a slightly more textured finish to the grip. The Brownells textured spray paint is an epoxy paint, so I’ll have to wait to get a can of it and apply it first to the primer because epoxy paint doesn’t adhere to enamel to well.

When I’m finished with it, I’ll post pics.

I still need to aluminum oxide blast the barreled action and give it maganese phosphate finish along with th Leopold, Sako scope rings. I have the media blaster and park solution but need to come up with park tank which will be an aluminum or stainless steel roasting pot and a Coleman gas stove.

Yes, I used it years go.

2 choices, mask off and spray over color coat with skateboard paint, or carefully cut and apply skateboard friction tape to hand area. Its pretty aggressive, so tread lightly.

I really like the Krylon Fine Stone Textured Finish spray paint, gives a finish that is rough but not real aggressive, plus when it gets scratched up from use it's easy to cover up.

I’ve used slackerboard oops I mean skateboard tape before on both handguns and rifles. The trick is, after applying it, sand off the sharp points of the grit with 600 grit silicon carbide paper. It reduces the sharpness.

Another option is Krylon marbilizing spray paint (previously called webbing). When dry it feel just like the texture used on HS Precision's webbed stocks.

I used the deck paint from lowes that has sand in it for a grippy texture. May not look like these other fine pistols, but it goes bang when you pull the trigger.
