I just wanted to tell people about how easy it was to coat your own gun barrel. I have a Browning A-bolt Titanium (300WSM) and I did not like the stainless barrel. After calling around, I found out that options for barrel coating are more expensive if you have a Ti component, so I ordered a $29.00 kit of DuraCoat Firearm Finishes in flat black.
It's a simple process. 1) Clean barrel and receiver and exterior bolt parts 2) Mask off holes and areas not to be coated. 3) Suspend barrel with fishing line and a hook 4) Mix contents, shake and spray several coats 5 minutes apart. DONE.
If you take the time to mask precisely, you can get a perfect result. I personally like the black barrel and black scope combo myself. Don't be intimidated, save big money and do it yourself. Good luck (Entire weight 6.3 lbs)
