Entire Glock 17 in ACU Light Tan
Out of my personal collection.

I've never DuraCoated a Glock frame before. I've done polymer plenty of times, but every company has a slightly different blend on their poly.

I was also surprised how easy it was to completely disassemble the Glock (slide, frame, and sights) - leaves me scratching my head on people who buy the "glock tool". I also am left wondering how hard is the official Glock Armorer course, considering I did everything with common garage hand tools without damaging or scratching anything.

I like that a lot. What grit sandpaper did you use on the frame?

I just hit lightly with some 600 I believe.

Polymer is already quite porous IMO. Polymers are great to work with. (not the super slick kind, but the textured kind like the Glock and Magpul are good examples)

Looks great good job!

I was going to take the Glock armorers course. Until I found out that if I would install any non Glock part my certification would be revoked. I am a fan of the Ghost trigger kit.

Was look into duracoating my xdm but I seen on YouTube that it comes off in time. So I was wondering is it just there prep job or is it the duracoat because I was wanting to do this my self or just pay my local shop to do it.

DuraCoat is just as durable as any other finish on the market. If the finish fails its due to improper mixing or poor prep work.

You see more complaints on DuraCoat because it is probably the least noob friendly finish on the market.

Your prep, im assuming you de-greased the gun first? Then 400-600g sand paper did you use a tac cloth?
