Anyone have any experience with this particular finish? The site claims that a gun finished with Duracote "will not rust - ever".

I find that claim hard to believe. What kind of warranty do they give to back it up?

I read that statement in their FAQ section:
"I hunt along saltwater. Will DuraCoat withstand the salty environment?
Certainly. DuraCoat is well suited for salty environments. One of DuraCoat's attributes is its extreme ability to resist salt corrosion. A firearm coated with DuraCoat simply will not rust...EVER!"

rust will not form on the dura-coat, but it is a coating, and if scratched then the rust can form on the unprotected area... I have a similar finish, and have had it in rain storms....rivers and the ocean, and done this often...still no rust, on all protected areas.

Double-Star .45 frame (new) and junkbox Itajuba slide. One black, one O.D. total cost $50.00 mas o menos to duracoat and I have enough left to do three more. Now that I know what surface prep needs, I'll get better results. The slide was pretty beat up.
