So I have used KG gunkote in flat back a number of times with great results. I have a newly converted Saiga 12 that needed to be painted so once again I went with gunkote and a preval aerosol sparayer. So I sand blasted all the parts, cleaned them all with acetone, and began to apply the gunkote. I noticed it looked almost like a textured finish on the first coat. So I applied two more light coats with same results. I though I'd go ahead and cure it anyway and see how it turned out. Well, it turned out like bubblegum. It was shinny and blochy. It looks like the gunkote was almost beading up on the metal. The strange texture was present on all painted surfaces. After it was all said and done I lightly buffed it with some scotch bright to take the shine away, but I left the underside of the top cover untouched so I can show the f-ed up finish. I am ticked, I have $50 and about 4 hours into this.....both time and money on hard to come by these days. I will post pics tomorrow after I get some sleep. Anyone have any idea what the issue could be? Anyone have a similar experience with KG products? I am thinking of calling them to ask WTF???? EDIT - I bet it was that damn aerosol sprayer........on the other guns I used a automotive touch up gun and one gun was done with a aerosol can of brownells gunkote. I think maybe the sprayer I used applied it too thick???!?!?!?!?
