Does any one have any experience with Duracoat ?

I thought I might try some on an old AR receiver.

Any local (OREGON) sources ? Thanks
I use Norrells finish result looks factory and it really durable

both it and duracoat are mail order

duracoat requires mixing norrells does not

i uses duracoat once and it plugged up the airbrush they sent with the kit may have been a defective brush i got some norrells and a cheap harbor freight airbrush and can take old parts and make them look new again

I had an M16A1 upper reciever and barrel duracoated to match my Eagle Arms lower. I was able to choose the color and its a 99 percent match. It looks like a brand new rifle now. I had a local gunsmith here in Oregon City do it. PM me and I'll send you his email.

Thanks for the info on the Duracoat. I was originally thinking about a do it yourself project, but there doesn't seem to be a local source for it. I hear that you have to pay an additional haz-mat fee for shipping that is quite hefty.

The best way to apply duracoat and expect it to last as long as it should and be durable is to fist either bead blast the part or parkerize the part first. This is the way it was meant to be applied. And yes it will cost more that $ 50.00. Customer never should have to supply the duracoat.

David at Trident Industries is duracoating a slide for my wife...He charging 65 for the disamebly, painting and assembly with a clear coat. He can be reach by email at tridentindustries@comcast.net or phone 541-760-5489

I can't vouch for his work yet, but in talking to him on the phone and though emails he seem reasonable and willing to work though the details that we want. I update my posting when the slide returns...

What did you have to pay for the digital AR job if you don't mind me asking,
I've been checking into pricing to have a couple of mine done and the price has been scarey.

Ok you guys talked me into it, **** i used to paint cars, how hard can it be well i looked up Duracoat on the internet and ordered some paint and camo stencils and we are off and running, well attached are the results. I think this is great paint and easy to use, i would recomend it to any first time painter it is very forgiving, and the quality is above average.
