    Default Question on finishes to put over stainless steel rifle

    OK a friend picked me up a used ruger Hawkeye Alaskan in 375 Ruger and I would like some opinions on finishes. I know it has a matte finish already but I would prefer it to be black. I can do duracoat but seem to be having trouble getting it in Alaska. Is there a way to get places to ship it up here or would I need a big order before they will ship it to us up here. I have a rifle that has been cerrakoted and I really like it and it seems really durable but I dont have the ability to bake on finishes to harden them. I was thinking about trying to go to Sherwin Williams or equivalent and see if they carry Polane-T. I think thats the same stuff as duracoat from what I have read anyway. Basically I would like to get something I can apply myself at home and something durable. I know some guys just degrease a matte stainless gun and hit it with ceramic header type paints or krylon but I dont think they will hold up at all. Anyhow could someone give me a helping hand in the right direction. Should I just leave it as is and not worry with a spray on finish?

    Artic Ammo stocks Duracoat and Kyle (Hunt_Alaska) does orders every so often and does the work too if you want. If you want DIY in black call Artic Ammo in Wasilla.357-3381 and see if they have black in stock, they should.

    Also some of the sellers on Amazon will ship Duracoat to Alaska, you got to place an order and it ether comes or they cancel your order and you try another vender.

    Kyle has done 3 stainless guns for me with duracoat and they turned out great. I love stainless but don't like the look.

    Great thanks alot guys I like stainless too but I dont like the way it looks on a rifle. I like it on my revolvers and 1911 but not on a hunting rifle. I will give them a call when I get home in a month or so. Thanks alot guys.
