Duracoat or similar finish on an Inox Beretta?
 
Hi, im not too familiar with refinshing, so my question is, can an inox or stainless gun be coated? Or possibly parkerized? And is it advisable to coat the internals? Excluding moving parts of course.

Yes, but why? The stainless gun doesn't need a finish.

Not much on stainless, I'm more a black and wood kinda guy. (there are a few exceptions though.)

I've always wanted said black pistol to add wood grips to, but somehow I always end up with something other than black.

There is nothing wrong with DuraCoat over a stainless firearm. Only thing to remember is that DuraCoat does best on a roughned finish (better adherence). I would NOT coat the internals. Although Duracoat goes on faily thin, you still may run into clearence issues internally.

Just my .02

And btw, I'm also a black and wood type of guy.. Very few stainless pieces in my collection..

Heck, I prefer the stainless. It's beauty right there. But, whatever.........

Guess it goes along with my general disliking for synthetic stocks. I just prefer the look of a nice wood finish and deep high polish blue...

Right there with you on that one.

A finish of some sort can be applied to an Inox slide. I have a Beretta that came from the factory with a blackened stainless slide. These models are referred to as "Cajun" for obvious reasons.:D

i have duracoated internals on guns before. works fine. i duracoated the bolt on my SKS years ago and it's still looks like it did the day i did it. no chiping, no cracking, nothing. i also did the bolt on my mossberg 500, again, no problems at all.

you just have to understand that painting anything is all about prep. with a gun, you need to degrease every single square inch of every part that is being painted. then rough it up and clean it again. good luck
