Options for prepping a stock.

SeufertSeufert Posts: 38Member
Hi all, I have been given the chance to dip a factory Remington synthetic stock, I am reading on here the method of choice is to blast it with 100 grit A.O. My issue is that I can only find 80 grit local and this stock is a Christmas gift. Also I have a cabnet that I bought used and have no idea what kind of media is in it or what has been blasted in it, so I don't want to take any chances. What it the 2nd best option for prep in your opinions? Thanks in advance.

    You don't have to blast. All you really need is a good scuff so that the paint has something to bit to. Then degrees paint dip

    Correct. You don't need to blast necessarily. I just very much prefer it. It's faster and more thorough. 80 grit AO will be fine to blast.

    You can sand with 400 grit or scuff with a scotch brite until it's it's uniformly dull. Adhesion promoter and Paint, or use a direct to plastic paint from One Hit Wonder, Low Country, or DTP.

    I kinda figured I could get away with scuffing but wanted to be sure, so many misleading things on other forms like "make sure you flame treat them" lol. Thank you very much!

    I've started using this stuff just recently and really like how good it works. Also degreases at the same time: https://www.amazon.ca/3M-06013-Scuff-Paint-Prep/dp/B000PF1A9A

    80 grit is fine. Blast it and carry on..degrease it well, knock off the shine and you’re done
