So I came close to this... I have a Remington 597 .22LR (well since I bought my father a 597 HB for Christmas, I guess you could say I have two lol) that I have heavily customized and modified/upgraded. After the internals were upgraded w/ Volquartsen parts and a babying effort by a gunsmith, a Nikon ProStaff 4-12x40mm replacing the "Remington 3-9x32mm" included scope, sling studs, swivels, and a sling installed etc. .. it was time for the looks to be upgraded.
I didn't want to buy a new stock because I am holding out hope that someday I really REALLY go all in and add a $3-500 VQ barrel ... which then I will also replace the stock. But until then I was going with the factory included synthetic (cheap Chinese injection-molded plastic) stock. I was going to do these camo kits but they were like $150-$200+ which is NO JOKE! A stock is like $100 !! Maybe not as cool colored but jeez louise!
So I got a few cans of spray-paint and did my own camo job. Most people think it's hilariously bad and it probably is, I am the least artistic person you will ever meet. Absolutely terrible .. cannot draw a stick figure. The fact I'd even attempt this was sort of a hilarious miracle. But I got what I got and I love it for what it is. I sometimes wish I did the camodip but for the money they cost I just didn't see the value.
