Recoating process

Saw a flyer at the local gun range today for a coating service and it occurred to me... When you send a gun off to get recoated (like duracote or similar), do they completely disassemble the gun? Like every spring and screw in a revolver or 1911?

And how exactly do they keep the coating from fouling the inside of a barrel (on a long gun, for instance)?

Just curious...

Reputable coating/plating shops will dissassemble completely and use rubber or silicone plugs in the barrel.
