my first duracoat job
 
Here it is guys. Don't judge too hard! My first one! FNH-FNX-9 in Magpul flat dark earth and slide done in tactical black. I had the slide re-done because the factory finish wasn't amazing.....what do you think?

Hey that looks pretty cool. I like it.

Well and let me clarify....my first duracoat job on my own gun....you would think I would have been super attention to detail guy but I didn't have to pay for it. The other ones I have done, well those are customers guns and i don't like screwing them up

...Anyway..Nice looking job you have dome here.:)

Doesn't Durocoat require baking?
I use Aluma coat on thoses that I worry will melt if I put them in the oven.

Please keep us informed on how well the coating lasts on the frame. I see a couple of projects coming from your idea.

(Oh, and yes, it does look good!)

I believe you can air cure duracoat. It just takes around 6 weeks. Not 100% on that.

No baking. You can, but it's recommended for air cure. Full time for air cure is a solid 3 weeks. Thanks for all the compliments! Next time I do one at the shop, ill post photos so you can see a little better quality than this one. I spend more time on customer jobs.
