    Iím having a rifle done and chose to go with Cerakote. I donít know what the technical difference is between the two but from everything Iíve read and heard Cerakote is probably a little tougher. Another thing I liked about Nic Industries is they will send you samples on little metal plates so you can make a more precise choice as to color.

    I read up on it quite a bit and the Durakoat seems to have great reviews if you are looking for a DIY project. The Cerakot seems to be better more durable but requires you to send it out and have it profesionaly done.

    I will be having a smith do it when I do my rifle build so I am not worried about ease of application. There really isn't too much difference in price between the two so just looking right now.

    Have you checked this out Robar NP3 Firearm finish. I have been thinking of getting it done.

    Durakoat is an epoxy.

    Cerakote is a ceramic.
