    I looked for a thread on this and couldn't find one......... So I thought I'd start one in the hopes of getting my questions answered.

    Is there a shop in the Portland area that does "Duracoating" or other corrosion resistant coatings for pistols and rifles? Regular gun bluing seems to provide very little protection if I have to take my guns into a damp environment.

    What types of processes are available and which is best?

    What does it cost for a pistol? A Rifle?

    What about colors?

    How well do these processes really protect your firearms?

    Thanks for any answers you can provide.
