    I got my Kel-Tec PF9 candy-coated!! (Pics....)

    Well folks, hereís yet another fine example of what Don over at Goldenloki can produce when you give him a can of duracoat and a shabby looking (factory blued) PF9. When I went to thank Don for his excellent work, all I could say was ďWowĒ, and that pretty much sums it up.

    On 7/4/10 I sent Don my slide, assembly pin, and slide stop (BTW: Taking the extra 5 minutes to take out the slide stop and mailing it in was well worth it, it really completes the look to have it duracoated as well. Removing it was surprisingly very simple). On 7/14/10 I had my slide back on my gun where it belongs. Seriously, 10 days total, including shipping days, is pretty impressive. I have included one picture of what my PF9 looked like before it was duracoated. The other pictures are all after it was completed. The pictures really donít do it justice. It looks so much better, looks like a whole different gun. Before it had tool marks galore and the slide grooves were already starting to rust out. On the left side of the slide you can see some slight bumps from the horrible factory finish. You canít even see these bumps now except under bright light and heavy scrutiny. It was a pretty banged up finish before, but now it is smooooooooth and black (Duracoat color 5-Semigloss Black (HK)! I made the pictures LARGE so you could see the smooth detail. Don was very easy to work with and communicated very well throughout the process. It wasnít easy mailing my baby away for 10 days, but he made the whole process a breeze. Iíve already got my mind on a stainless duracoat slide for my next PF9 which I will be purchasing soon. Canít wait!


    *Side Note: Don recommended I use soft holsters for about one month to allow the duracoat to cure. My CrossBreed is on its way now so that may be tough, but Iíll wait out the month before exposing the new finish to kydex.



    BEFORE the Duracoat






    AFTER..........

    One thing about the DuraCoat...

    It makes the outside of the gun virtually rustproof. When you sweat all over it, it wont matter.

    No. I've put 250 flawless rounds through his gun so far. Didn't really think it was necessary.

    Wow. Looks just as good as some of the finishes found on more expensive pistols.

    Congrats.

    That's looks nicer than the two CZ-82s I did myself. Amazing how a little cosmetic work does wonders. I had no experience with an airbrush and learned the hard way that "prep" is all important. Still it all worked out okay in the end after a couple of miscues. Now, time will tell how the durability holds up.

    Congrats on the fine-looking finish!

    When you wrote "candy-coated" I thought oh no, he made it red or orange or something like that!

    Nice looking job. Is that Duracote a powdercoat kind of thing?....heat to cure etc.? Sure looks like brand new!
