While I have it completely disassembled, once I get my barreled action back from the gunsmith (getting it cut down) I'm going to paint the action and barrel. This is the stock its going into. Black with grey webbing, and some heavy metallic silver webbing.
It's kind of that lightly textured weather resistant (idk what they call it) blackish grey right now. What color would you do if it was your rifle. Leave it the way it is isn't an option, its definitely getting paint.
