    Hey guys just some pics of my new paint job,the rifle was originally all black duracoat,this is my first time using cerakote and i must say it finishes beautifully,i was nervous at first but i am really happy with the finish,i made the switch to this paint because duracoat was getting too hard to find downunder,colours are;

    action-H series,graphite black
    barrel-H series,satin mag
    stock-C series,flat dark earth with black and desert sand splatter.

    Thanks CentreHit,time will tell how much more durable it will be, it's gonna get a good test in 2 weeks in south west west Queensland.

    Wow looks great! the real test for the cerakote will be around the first set of vent holes on the muzzle brake. That's the most probable spot for it to peal. I know durakote cant withstand that.
