I took an old Mossberg 88 that had been sitting in a box in the garage for the last couple of years rusting away. To be honest, I forgot I had the thing. So, I took some steel wool to it and got the rust off and generally cleaned it up and degreased it. I picked OD to replace the original blue finish. I used the furniture that was originally on the gun. It didn't take me long to get the mixture just right and I was spraying away. It took about two hours to finish the job to my satisfaction and here is the finished product...

Overall I found the product to be very easy to work with and I'm very happy with the results.

It looks great! Let it cure for about 30 days and take it out and put it through it's paces. After you do that, check all sharp edges and the muzzle and let us know how it holds up under actual use. That is the bottom line of why I don't trust applied finishes. It does look excellent though!:)

Who makes Duracoat? Anyone have a link to a product description/application procedures?
Thanks.

It's made by www.lauerweaponry.com

It's an extremely durable finish. More so than any other "coating" I've seen. I've used it several times already.

Please elaborate...I'm wondering about the finish holding up on edges and resistance to abrasion on the flat surfaces etc. I'm aware that polyurathane is pretty good stuff as is epoxy based coatings. I'm not sure what "duracoat" is as far as coatings go. Got some pics of your work?
