    Default DuraCoat

    Anyone ever tried this stuff? Says it can be sprayed right on a blued gun, and that it will last many generations. You can get camo patterns or just solid colors. Some of their examples look pretty nice!

    Dura-Coat is good stuff; you don't want to shoot it directly over bluing though. Blast your surface with something abrasive like aluminum oxide... the texture helps the coating to adhere to the metal. My partner and I did over 100 guns in Dura-Coat, and although there is a certain art to some of the patterns we did most of the basic ones are pretty simple. Dura-Coat is basically a matte epoxy, so it does adhere very well with appropriate surface prep. Make sure to clean your airbrush as soon as you're done...

    But it is a scheduled future project. I'm going to spray my 45-90 Enfield HK- Black.

    I bought my airbrush at a local hobby shop ($50). It works much better than the cheap one I had from Harbor Freight ($10).
