    Default powder-coating

    Can someone point me in the direction of a business that powdercoats rifles in the Anchorage or Valley area?

    You maybe referring to Duracoating. HuntAK has a thread on the shooting forum called duracoat project. He did a gun for me and his work is exellent. I am thinking of having another done.

    Didn't Remington do a run of powder coated 870 home defense guns?

    Powder coating will generally build up too much thickness on a firearm to be useful. The pin holes and surfaces where moving parts operate will bind due to the thickness of the powder coat. Look at something thinner, like plating, or Ro-Bar's coating services. Why buy anything less than the best.

    Powder Coating is for lawn furnature, pasture gates and the like.

    Guns deserve a good coating such as Duracoat or Norrell's Moly Resin...both good products...I use them almost daily.
