I have duracoated several polymer frame pistols. Its extremely easy. Cerakote is a tougher finish but duracoat is damn strong. The last two I did were a Glock 17 and an H&K USP 9mm both in flat dark earth. Don't have pics b/c I did them at my shop. Sandblast at about 30-35 Psi after the frame is stripped down-takes about 5 min w/a Glock-not so much with the H&K. It doesn't take a lot, just lightly roughens up the surface to accept the paint easier, then wipe down with acetone several times. Get an airbrush gun and paint! I usually make a couple to three passes. Its all about the preparation, the better you do preparing, the cleaner it will look. I've had a couple of bad ones due to bad preparation. It needs about 3 weeks to fully air cure so don't rush it....beauty takes time. And btw, duracoat offers soooooo many more colors than cerakote. Hope this helps, this is just the way we do it.
