Will be picking up my Tikka T3x Superlite and wanted some info on stock painting. Love the rifle but wanted to add some pizzazz to it. I'm a fan of the textured web pattern. Is there any bit of difference having it professionally done or doing it myself? Also which paints would be recommended?

I've used Krylon camo paint on rifles, paintball guns and gear, and various other pieces of gear with great results. I'll seal it up with Minwax matte clear after 4-5 days of drying time.

Duracoat paint, then a topcoat of Brownells Aluma-hyde II. The Aluma-hyde II is a hard, durable clear epoxy-based coating for protection and wear resistance.
I see no reason to pay somebody to do such an easy (and fun) task.
Practice your paint theme on a piece of scrap cardboard or wood before applying to your stock!
