Question Painting Muzzelite Mini-14 bullpup stock

I plan on purchasing one later on and was wondering what kind of sand paper, paint, etc. to use on this stock? The color I'm going to paint the stock is going to be a flat black type color.

The muzzelite stock is already black, but if you're wanting to paint it, I'd guess just a quick sanding with a fine paper, and then Duracoat to your content...

sorry my post was a little rude but i was half asleep when I posted and was only thinking about how disappointed i was when I bought my muzzelite. I will admit it was fun gave the mini the "starship trooper" feel lol but dang the sights suck ive literally had nicer sights on a water pistol. for as much as it cost you'd think they could have put better sights on it lol. whats really fun not!!! is when ejected cases went inside the stock and jammed up the op rod.. glad we're on the same page being more with it I felt bad about my original post.

dont worry about it. its all good. the muzzelite looks cool and all but it just doesnt function as great as we all wish it could of have from the beginning. i bought the stock cause i couldnt afford a bullpup weapon like a STG-551, Kel-Tec RFB or something along the lines of those weapons. i traded my Glock 19 for a NIB Mini-14 so it was a deal i thought was great from the get go. but yeah...duracoating seems a little expensive so ill just probably sand down the stock and get like some decent matte or flat back spray cans and paint it.

ive painted scopes a couple savage rifles and an AR-15 with regular old krylon. nice thing about krylon is if you get wear spots just hit it with some more krylon. lol

did you sand them down anyways? it says you dont have to sand whatever your painting but i feel uncomfortable if i dont. does krylon chip easily?

the scopes were gloss I roughed them up a bit with some 220 grit. synthetic stocks on the savages and AR I just made sure they were oil free using a rag and some 70% rubbing alcohol and wiped them off real good. the AR receiver I used gun scrubber to make sure the surfaces were oil free and dry. I wouldnt use gun scrubber on anything plastic it could possibly damage plastics. Krylon seems to create a good hard surface never had any issues with cracking but will rub on the high spots.

high spots on the outer surfaces that may contact other surfaces from normal wear ie clothing, gun cases the ground etc.
