Re: Powder Coating bbl action?

Roy:

My finish of choice for metal has been the "Gun Kote" The only way you get it off is to sandblast it. You can run it through a air brush, camo patterns as well. 300 deg in a oven for 1 hour is the cure time. I have done several 45 autos, rifle actions, works good and is very abrasive resistant. You can get it in almost any color.

On stocks i like to use the Wrinkle Paint, very durable, just takes about two weeks to cure out properly.

Its all fun tring to come up with new styles and designs.

    450F is about 230C you should be ok on barrels at that, but i wouldn't go much higher.
    I was looking into exactly this subject about 1 year ago when searhcing for different coatings to offer on my custom rifles.
    I currently have a company who do me TiAIN applied at 200C.
    I also have chrommoly actions Nitride treated accasionaly.
    I got a bog box of cerakote in a few weeks ago and will also be using that. gunkote works but isn't all that tough.
    regards Pete
