I am trying to buy a good quality DuraCoat Do-It-Yourself kit for my boyfriend for Christmas.
The trouble is, I don't know a thing about guns or DuraCoat.
Does anybody know where I might be able to order something like this from? Any info would be helpful...website, company name, etc.

they even sell a compressed air airbrush...though you can get a Tesors kit at Walmart in the model section for less money if he doesn't have a compressor.
though if he is not doing a camo job then I would also recommend the following...at least to take a look at.
Norrell's Moly Resin http://www.johnnorrellarms.com/
KG Gun Kote http://www.kgcoatings.com/

Hi, andera. I think the best price will be directly from Lauer Custom. I recently got the kit, and am extremely pleased. Canned air, from our local hobby store runs $13-15/can, and I can get 1 complete AK-47 done with one can.
For the money, a little compressor would be well worth it if he's got more than a couple rifles(birthday? ), I've seen them on ebay for +/- $40. Be sure he reads the instructions- it takes about 1 week for the finish to be cured. You can hurry it up by putting it in the oven at 100-200 degrees for a couple of hours. If you let the pieces air dry for a day before baking, there isn't much in the way of smell.
LCW is the maker of DuraCoat. I got the Basic Airbrush kit. The only difference between the Basic and Advanced is better hose and fitting on the airbrush. You can buy these things at a hobby store to add to the basic kit later if that's a consideration.

Thanks very much everyone for your input. I have bought the kit and feel like I made an informed decision.
I appreciate the quick response. Hope you all have a good holiday.
