My concern is the paint interfering with the interior of the stock
I have not yet [painted] a stock but have done dozens with Tru-Oil. After the bedding work such as crossbolts, pillars, etc is done and the action is epoxy bedded. Any remaining exposed wood inside such as magazine cutout, barrel channel etc is coated with at least 3 coats of oil finish thinned 50% mineral spirits so it is thin enough to soak [into] and protect the wood real well from moisture absorption which can/will cause warping. No need to paint or finnish the epoxied portions as they are already water proofed.

The comb? Is that the area with the groove and recoil lug?
The [Comb] is the raised portion of the stock behind the pistol grip that you rest your cheek on.
Wrist.... is the thin portion behind reciever arching down into pistol grip.
Heel.... is top/rear end of butt stock that contacts your shoulder.
Toe.... is bottom of butt stock where it contacts your shoulder.
