    Stan for short ----Duracoat is supposed to be one of the most durable gun finishes on the market, however time will tell. I almost painted all the parts black but thought this might look good, however I may go all black with my next batch? You are supposed to be able carry it and to clean it with any normal cleaning product s within 24 hours, but it does not reach it's maximum hardness for about 3 weeks.
    Thanks for an inspiring thread.

    Great job, I would like to try my hand at that sometime in the future. But before I attempt doing my S&W J frame I think I will try it on an old shotgun first.
    God bless our troops!

    First let me say, great job on your little Smith mhm2a. I do not mean to Hi Jack your tread, but I wanted to comment on the use of Duracoat.

    I have been using Duracoat for several years and have experience with many of the other finishes avalible on the market. Duracoat is the best bar none IMO. High quality finish that wears long and tough. I have handguns I applied the finish to 4-5 years ago and they have all held up very well. You certainly can scratch the finish but its not easy to do and its totally impervious to moisture, fingerprints and solvent. As long as you apply it correctly with the right amount of the Duracoat hardener additive the finish is very tough.

    Couple examples:
    The CZ52 at the top of this photo was finished 4 years ago and has seen around 700-800 rounds in that time and a fair amount of time in the holster and it looks almost as good as the day I finished the pistol.


    SIG P6 I just finished:

    Nice job! I always thought it would look good to have a 442 frame with 642 cylinder/barrel/crane... But that didn't occur to me!

    Wow, great looking job and looks professional, my wife will sometime carry a "J" frame that I might consider a Duracoat, heck I might even consider coating her cat too.

    This is my absolute favorite revolver from Louder than Words, it's done in NP3 and Springfield Armory coat.

    Nice.....Thanks for the positive comments. I will be sure to let everyone know how the finish holds up to normal and maybe abnormal wear and tear.

    Thanks.
