    Duracoat Finish

    Can a Duracoat Finish be removed? I saw a gun last night for cheap, but it's because is has a goofy color scheme. Any info would be helpful.

    Thanks,

    Like any paint, it can be removed. You're talking about bead blasting or sand blasting and then you have a new finish problem. I don't know of any stripper that works on it once it's cured.

    Can you go over it?

    Actually, if you degrease, and don't go heavy, you can Duracoat right over the existing finish. You can heat the gun to around 325*, and the DC will become mostly removable with a wirebrush or 3M pad, but blasting is generally easiest, overall.

    How easy is DuraCoat removed?

    Not easy at all. The elastic nature of DuraCoat resists blasting. A qualified individual, with the proper blast media, can safely remove DuraCoat without damaging the surface of the firearm. Be careful.

    In most cases, we recommend lightly blasting the surface, being cautious not to remove any DuraCoat. Just "beat up" the DuraCoat giving it "tooth" so your new application of DuraCoat has something to adhere to.
