Please Remember this.

It gets hot out shooting in the summer and we sweat and boy do we sweat when it gets hot out. Some may drop on your rifle,
If you leave it and don't wipe it off real good with an oily cloth it will rust in the area,
So please remember to keep an eye out, and keep your rifles clean and free from rust.

Duracoat, Ceracoat all but illuminates this problem.

Was thinking the same thing.

Many years ago I just went to buying nothing but stainless and synthetic guns for just that reason. Of course you lose any ability to camouflage them in doing so unless you want to get out a can of Krylon.

The new ceramic/polymer coatings give you the best of all possible scenarios.

Could not agree more. I like the ceramic for coating the action but I think the polymer (duracoat) Resist chipping more. I also find that letting it set at least a week before use provides a longer lasting finish.

I've done an ENORMOUS amount of reading on Cerakote lately, some of it on sights where ther guru's who do it for a living were comparing notes.

To a man they all agreed that even on bolts Cerakote was beating out Durakote (most of these guys do/did both) for wear durability.

The secret seems to be in letting it fully cure for a month before putting the bolt back in and working/firing etc.

I'm having a couple done right now. I'll report back.

As few people as there are doing it in our area I'm giving serious consideration to learning to do it myself just as a hobby.
