    DuraCoat or DuraBake. Has anyone tried these products, and what was the results.
    I am working on a Colt Commander frame that was Tig welded and want to try refinishing it myself. Any input would be appreciated.

    I think you have to use an EZBake oven with those products. get it parkerized, or find some one to reblue it.

    A Commander is an aluminum frame that was anodized. DuraCoat is a two part epoxy and you let it air cure, DuraBake is sprayed on and cured in an oven.

    I have two guns out getting refinished with cerakote.
    After a lot of research I've decided that I dont trust duracoat for the long haul.

    my buddy has done a couple of guns with Duracoat, and they look nice. I just ordered some duracoat to do a 10/22 receiver and bolt handle. When I get it done I will post some pics.

    I've used the durabake on a Para .45 and on several .22 rifles. I've been extremely satisfied and it has held up well...been about 4 years now. One note of caution, wait until the wife is gone before using her oven. It's got a pungent odor when baking!

    I got mine from Brownells but they have really scaled back there selection of colors midwayusa. The link below makes it super easy to apply. Did my 870 and rem 700 with one kit.

    I just finished a 10/22 still waiting for it to dry. I am pleased with the finish. The one thing I noticed, it is easy to make layers to thick. I will get some picks up soon.
