Repairing a revolver
 
I was curious if any one had any ideas about coatings to put on a revolver. My taurus has the bluing coming off and I want to do something different. Any ideas out there?

Look for duracoat online it seems to work really well

Will dura coat go over the blue or do I need to take it down to bare metal? Thanks

I have often thought my Ruger GP100 would look nice in OD green cerakoat.

How about having it dipped in chrome or something like that? I bet that is pricey.

There are places that will apply various coatings for you, from cerakote to "hard chrome".

Thanks, I will have to check on that.

Any coating adds a little "bulk" to the pieces. Some "bulk" may have to be later removed for the revolver to work correctly.

As a side note, on a 1911 handgun I applied Alumacoat to, a flake worked off the frame and onto the sear. I've already had 2 boxes through the gun and did careful prep work (including complete disassembly) before painting. The flake created hammer "follow" (the hammer dropped to half cock when fired). After removing the flake from the sear and hammer, all is working again.
