link to a thread on the topic for ya...
i use duracoat due to the stink of baking the other finish it is useable the next day and just gets harder with age. Give heavy barrels at least 24 hours before handling them. Duracoat has the best color range.
In my experience Gunkote it is a bake on phenolic resin/or ceramic that once
it is cured is a very hard and abrasion resistant. impervious to almost all chemicals, Duracoat is a air dry paint. In a bunch of colors and cool templates
it kind of depends on what your trying to achieve. if you go with Duracoat then be careful with the cleaners you use some will bubble it up and make it soft.
you can also bake the Duracoat which is supposed to make it harder faster.
good luck with your projects hope this helped.
Yeah I wound up ordering the manganese parkerize solution from them, well see how it goes
it should be ok, I haven't used there stuff when you buy Park salution just compare to others to how much it makes. Some of the stuff out there is diluted, and doesn't make as much.
DuraCoat has two differe3nt types, one you bake at a low temp and the other is air dry not as durable.
Yes they do
unfortunately you can take most any paint and market it as a low temp bake on. I used it twice, but mostly I have taken the stuff off of other peoples guns
and scopes. And when it softens and bubbles with acetone makes you realize
the power of marketing.
but they so have pretty cool pattern templates.
