Dura Coat?

How durable is duracoat? Is it prone to chipping or scratching?

Re: Dura Coat?

I've been wondering the same thing. Looking at possibly using it on my sniper rifle.

Re: Dura Coat?

Duracoat is fine for painting stocks. There are better finishes out there for metal IMO.

Bottom line, though, do what makes you happy with your rifle.

I've never found anything that's indestructable!

Re: Dura Coat?

What would be a good finish to go from your basic M700 gloss to a matte finish on the metal?

Re: Dura Coat?

Bead blast and re-blue, KG GunKote, Ceracoat. GunKote & CeraCoat are a coating , so they help 'seal' the surfaces, that are coated, from the elements. You still have to take care or the un-coated areas such as the bore, ect., ect. Bead blast and re-blue has the same corrosion protection bluing has, not much, needs to have a coat of oil or light grease for best protection.

Re: Dura Coat?

Is this something I can do here at home? Or do I need to have a smith do it?
