2020-10-26 (M) 80PercentArRifle COMPLETED

I bought a collapsible stock with a few moving pieces, like a cheek riser and the length adjustment lever. For the paint job, I removed most of the parts because I wanted the black-on-white look, and I was painting the chassis of this stock.

Some of the parts resisted disassembly. The adjustment lever had a captive rod and some tension pins holding it in place. I didn't look up any instructions before tearing this apart, but I didn't break anything even though I was blindly pulling pieces out.

I sealed up the circular divot with a wad of poster tack, and I used masking tape for the rest.
Protected surfaces

I planned to paint this stock on one side, wait for the paint to dry, then flip it to finish. Fortunately, the butt was flat enough that I could stand it on end for the first layer and reach both sides. To apply the second, I stood it on the tube end to ensure paint got into all the nooks and crannies. I should have placed a roll of paper inside the tube, but I don't think it harmed anything.
Second layer of paint

When all the paint was dry, I reassembled the stock, and I was pleased with the color contrast between the white painted parts and the undoctored black parts. In a practical sense, the cheek riser is a welcome addition to the gun and will be a huge help when I install a scope.
