I have a new project rifle that I want a dead tough finish on that can put up with Sitka rain and saltwater. My requisites for this gun are low glare, saltwater resistance, water resistance, blood resistance, etc., essentially complete environmental resistance inside and out. I have been doing a lot of looking around at different gun finishes available and have been trying to find the top of the heap. I have narrowed it down to Cera-Coat, BlackIce, Roguard, NP3 and Black-T. I know a lot of guys up here are partial to Cera-Coat and it is the most readily available but I have heard great things about Birdsong's Black-T and am leaning that way at the moment. Black-T can coat every part of the gun except the bore, even springs which is a major bonus.
What experiences have people had with these finishes? What are peoples opinions?
Sorry, no Rust-Oleum, I will leave that for the grafitti.
