    I am thinking about refinishing my Mossberg Riot Shotgun.......looking for suggestions. I want a coat of something on it so it doesnt rust on me. Dont really want to spend more then the rifles worth.....but dont want a cheap refinish that isnt going to last. Any help is appreciated.

    There are several folks on here who coat for a living and could probably set you up pretty reasonably.

    You could also buy yourself a kit from Duracoat and do the job yourself if you feel like taking on the job.

    Here are a couple I've done with Norrell's Moly Resin:

    Thank you! I'm quite happy with the outcome, too.

    The process is pretty easy, if you have the right tools. You'll need an oven big enough(I would NOT recommend using your home oven as it will smell horribly after), a blasting cabinet, airbrush/spray gun and some spray degreaser like brake clean.

    Disassemble the gun, clean, blast, clean, dry, clean, dry, preheat, spray with your choice of finish, bake at heat and time recommended by the maker of the finish, let cure, oil/lube, and reassemble. Again, it comes down to having the right tools and LOTS of prep and cleaning work. Your hands must be ultra clean and after the final cleaning, you cannot touch the item to be finished as any oil will contaminate the process.
