I have a pistol on order (baby eagle 9mm 'fullsize' steel) and it will be my first pistol. I have shot many but this will be the first I can call MINE. I went wrong when purchasing my first rifle a few years back and ended up trading it in to buy a .300 Weatherby Magnum. I didn't want to make the same mistake in a handgun selection so I decided to save a few extra paychecks and get what I really wanted. (I'm a young one / takes a while when working + attending school)
Background set aside, MY QUESTION lies in information about Duracoat. The ONLY negative review I could find when researching the baby eagle pistol (in 9mm, .45's got horrid reviews all around) was the finish on them. Aparently they show wear very easily. After discussing the matter with my dad (sniper208 on these forums fyi) he mentioned Duracoat. It sounds and looks great, HOWEVER they assume everyone visiting their website knows about the product, as they present NO information on product function. What exactly does Duracoat do to a firearm other than make it look 'pretty'? And what can be expected when using the product for a pistol and quite possibly a rifle?
