I have had my Cooper Excalibur a while now, it has the black stock with red webbing and is cerakoted in graphite black(metal). I am thinking about sending the stock out to be painted or hydrodipped. I plan on keeping the gun for the long haul but I am somewhat impulsive. I am just wondering if I would seriously devalue it by painting the stock ( like sending to GA Precision to get painted)?

I can't imagine that would change the value at all.

Thanks

Which is more durable? I really like the kuiu vias camo hydrodip( a lot) but I like GAP's camo scheme too.

Help, opinions!

Maybe Kiuiu. I don't have any camo. The Whitetails can't see my stock in the Bale blind or the other ground blind or the Tree House but I really like some of the new camo's so I guess it's your choice!

I'm not particularly asking about the camo choice. But I think the only way I can get the kuiu vias is hydrodipped. I guess I am wondering if the durakote paint that GAP uses is more durable with a good finish, vs hydrodipped with a good finish. If the durakote is better, I like it enough to go that direction.
