    Hey KDChastain1,

    You mentioned that it has held up, how long have you had it and what type of use is it put through, just wondering?

    Thanks

    I bought some from a vender at the KCR MG shoots - used it on my old SP-1 seems
    to be holding on tight - but with any paint job prep work is everything - after a year
    in the woods and range (i am not kind to guns-tools are used) it seems as durable as
    advertised.

    Thanks,
    I agree, guns are tools to be used. Well maybe after this krylon wears off, I might just do me a duracoat job.
    Thanks for the info.

    now I have read that the "keys" to duracoat is:

    A) Sandblast the metal parts (rough up surface, maybe steel wool works as well???)

    B) LET IT SIT for 6 mo. and dry harden.

    I have a G kit built by a master, BUT the duracoat came off where the tight dust cover fits with the DC reciever.

    No I did not let it sit for more than a week, so I may be "to blame"

    Krylon is really cheesy, that will come off if you look at it wrong.

    Alumahide by brownells is not bad...agian let it sit for a long time ( like a month), and you need to bake it at a low temp...( 170-200 F if I remember).
