Would like to share some of my work.
 
I shoot, tinker, re-finish all sorts of firearms. I primarily use DuraCoat, which I have been using for a few years.

Been looking for a forum dedicated to gunsmithing and/or refinishing and it looks like this is a sub-category in most places, but figured it was a good place to start.

Let me know if you would like to see more. :)

There is no shortage of awesomeness to be found here. Well played sir...

Awesome! I'm wanting to get into duracoating some of my guns too. Do you have any advice so that the finish will turn out as smooth and flawless as your's does?

DuraCoater 10-09-2012 09:21 PM

Thanks everyone.

DuraCoating like any form of refinishing is mainly prep, prep, and more prep. Then comes experience. Just like any other skill set (with very rare exception) you are not going to get it perfect the first time.

My advice for a new person is to spend the money on a few airbrushes/HVLP guns and a compressor - stay away from the "compressed air in a can" setups you can get. These do not maintain proper flow and have a slew of other problems.

Second of all, degrease the parts very well. From this point forward never handle the parts without gloves. The smallest deposit of oil from your skin can ruin the adhesion in that one spot.

I will generally soak the part in a mix of hot water and TSP for about an hour then blow it dry with a compressor. Hitting in with some Acetone as a final step is good to.

Here are some other works I've done:

Thankfully it got better after visiting the Gun Hospital:
