Staining a stock

I want to stain my wood stock on my AK. I was hoping to try and match the Magpul OD handguard on it. I know the Rustoleum camo paint I have is a 99% match, but can anyone suggest how to closely match a stain?

Give Tandy Leather Company a look.

They sell a zillion leather dyes (Fiebing's Company) that are alcohol based and beyond perfect for gun stocks.

A company called Insta-Tint also makes high quality alcohol based dye. Though the color selection is limited.

I have seen people mix paint into stains/finishes. Oil with oil bases, water in water. Obviously testing required.

Some Lowes carry the tintable Minwax waterbased stains now. Uses the same tints as paint. See if they can do a match, they should be able to.
