Savage and DuraCoat Shake N' Spray

Got a chance to try out the new Duracoat DIY kit. Nothing but good things to say. Kit was very easy to use and I had no issues getting everything to work as it should have. The spay system held strong the whole time. After three coats on all the parts I still would have had enough to do another rifle. Wish I had gotten another ready to go. lol I'll have more pictures of the process and kit up at the site listed with my profile later.







Check out a couple pics of the results. Savage 260 Rem build | Project Savage



Got a small review on the kit and process here. Duracoat Shake N Spray | Project Savage

Re: Savage and DuraCoat Shake N' Spray

That looks great!

I was wondering about that kit and wanting to do the same thing.

Couple of questions: Any issues with the smaller parts of the action operating smoothly or the duracoat staying in place?

Also I noticed you did not plug the holes in the action any issue when putting the bases/scope back on?

How much were the kits going for?

Thanks!

Re: Savage and DuraCoat Shake N' Spray

No issues thus far. I have only worked everything a few times and it isn't fully cured yet but I haven't noticed any binding or scratching of the finish. I also didn't really notice any finish getting into the action screw holes. I ran a screw down each hole about an hour after I was done spraying just in case. I wasn't very worried about that since I knew it would still be fairly soft for a while. I probably should have put something in them actually but everything turned out just great.

Re: Savage and DuraCoat Shake N' Spray

Your timing could not be better as I just started looking into that kit tonight. I have used duracoat before but it was a pain and this looks like a much better set up. The big question ..................Is that a stainless barrel or just in the white? Did you sand it and if so how course? Thanks for posting.

Re: Savage and DuraCoat Shake N' Spray

Yes it was a stainless barrel. I just used the abrasive pad that was included with the kit. It did a decent job of dulling it up. I think if you check the DuraCoat guide table you'll find they suggest you can lightly sand with 600 grit sandpaper if you can't blast the part. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to hit it with the 600 grit as well. Not sure you'd need it though. They are great at getting back to you on questions so shoot them an email and see if they feel you might need to go beyond the pad that is included on stainless. As I mentioned in the article the directions are very minimal.
