I've heard a lot of folks use Duracoat but never checked out their website till now. So you need to mix it and use a spray gun? I need to repaint my Bushmaster Mini Y-comp muzzle brake but don't know if it's worth going through all that for a small part. So many types of black listed, not sure which one would look best anyway.

Awesome job on the Tokarev!

They make a kit with a aersol container that can apply it, but from what I read, its kinda cheap. My wife got me a nice air brush, I figured I could do my guns, and maybe make my money back on the air brush and paints.
Thanks.

That Tokarev turned out pretty awesome. Can you explain how you prepared the metal prior to the duracoat. My Tokarev really needs to be refinished too but Im not sure how to do the preparation.

Amazing simple, they recommend there own degreaser, but they say aersol brake clearner will work also.
The 2 things I used was a scotch brite pad and a can of Wally world brand brake cleaner in spray can.
Rough up with scotch brite pad (after you disassemble) and then degrease with the brake cleaner, try not to touch the metal after this then shoot with duracoat.

Nice job! I'd love to do that to one of my pieces, but my house is just too da*n dusty (two cats and a dog) for it to turn out well.

Did you heat-cure it or just let it sit (takes like two weeks, right?).

You are supposed let sit 24 hrs. before re-assemble, and then 3-4 weeks before hard use. Where it is an epoxy base finish. But you can cure quicker by baking at 110 degrees. I do it in my back building during summer heat, it should cure pretty quick. Amazingly tough, as far as I can see.

Another note for anyone doing duracoat, Xyol, (Spelling), makes a great degreaser. You have to wear a 95 respiratory when your doing duracoat anyway, so just be sure you are wearing one when degreasing with this stuff, and in a well ventalated area, because it will take you out, trust me been there done that one.
