Re: Painting Barrelled Actions


I'd rather have a professional finish that won't wear off at the muzzle or wear points, but this one was cheap enough.

rost495, Yes, this is a problem with most all painted finishes I have seen. At any points with wear or tight tolorances the finish will most always wear off. The better finishes will not normally come off at the muzzle as I normally find this with the cheaper or quicker applied finishes. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

When the painted finishes are applied from a professional like ironbrigad armory they will put a nice parkerized finish under it so as the painted surface is removed from the wear spots there is still a durable finish protecting the metal. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Thanks for pointing this out as it certainly can make or brake the idea of a painted surface to many. For those wanting to do it yourself, the Duracoat is the best on the market and what many professionals use as this (firearms) is what it was designed for.
