Dura Coat

Not sure if this is posted in the right place.

Alrighty,
What is the best cleaner to clean your gun with when getting ready to dura coat it?I know dura coat has something but i'm looking for something different.Also the bolt and all other moving parts do you paint them and shave off where it will touch or do you paint it in the gun?

Well i guess is what i'm asking is step by step of what needs to be done.

Thanks for the info

prep work for duracoat

Talked to a guy here in my area doing custom duracoat jobs for people, he used automotive Brake Cleaner to degrease the barreled action,cheap but very effective.Then he would mask the area's he didn't want painted the same as any other paint job except for very precise trimming of the masking tape with an Xacto knife or something similar. Then he would paint the gun and after a short drying period remove tape, and bake the gun. Instructions come with kit I'm told goodluck!

I've been doing a few dura coat jobs and the stuff they send with it works great but i have also used Gun Scrubber and have seen not bad effects from that. Watch out for crooks and nooks where grease can get cause that stuff can drain out later and cause hell

well again your just a little to quick for me. i will be trying it on a couple of rifles in the next week or so. i think it will definantly be something worth using to protect the paint, though to be honest with ya that stuff is pretty freakin hard!!!!!! i painted a knife with it and have stabbed it into wood around 40 times and have yet to chip any paint off

take it easy

i think i'm just going to paint mine with the normal dura coat and if it chips or something later i guess i can maybe touch it up and then clear it.if you say it is a pretty hard finish then I should be okay.This is my first one so i'm really not sure how it's going to work out.I have done some prep work to get it ready so now i need a good air brush and i'll be set.
