Exactly right!!

Sorry about the can, I know exactly how you feel. I like to keep my things looking perfect as well.

Shake and spray duracoat works very well! For Duracoat or Cerakote get the high temp versions or it may discolor after some use (not so much with darker colors though).

Just received my can back today. UPS left it on my front door. As i live close from work so i quickly rushed to home during work. I fear it might get lost or something, it's a suppressor with 6 months wait, hell no i ever want it got lost or stolen.
I sent it to johnnorrellarms.com for refinishing. John used Moly Resin coating for his work. He quoted me for $45 including return shipping with insurance. I sent it to him on 11/10 by Priority Mail with insurance of $800, so shipping to him costed me $17ish.
All i can say is WOW.. he did a damn good job. My can looks much better than it was brand new. I was hesitating what color to be painted and John chose "Semi Gloss Black". I'm glad he chose the color on my behalf.
I can't see the old burnt glove marks and scratches neither discoloration from the old paint. It really looks sick and shiny as it's semi gloss.
I highly recommend his professional service and most importantly decent price. This costed me $62 including both way shippings included insurances. Next i'll use his service to refinish my AR15 stripped lowers. Much cheaper than YHM quoted me for $200 for the can refinishing.
Sorry for the not so clear pics as i took them with my phone. I just couldn't wait to share my happiness. Lol

My gotos for such things are acetone and denatured alcohol. Dont mix em btw. Acetone is harsher and will strip some paints i mainly use it as a degreaser for cleaning screws and screw holes so locktite will stick better. Just for future reference.

What about Hoppes #9 & Break Free? I use them all the time and never a single problems. Just wondering if they are safe on this Moly Resin. I'll email John today too.

Yes John just replied my email. He has yet to find any chemicals which are unsafe to it.

Get a "TAB suppressor anti-mirage shield"
copied from website
protects you, your can, and your equipment. Designed to prevent mirage from obscuring your site picture after multiple shots. Eliminating mirage is accomplished by the use of insulating materials - your can heats up, but the SAS stays cool. The outer shell of the the TAB SAS will not heat up so your equipment and person will not become damaged with accidental or intentional contact. Removal and handling of your can, while inside the TAB SAS, immediately after firing is possible due to the high quality insulating materials used in the construction.
