my son and I are starting this process up, have
this savage we did
the pattern is sweet

hand guns are harder to do,you have strip every thing so cost are higher unless
you disassemble it your self and then pass it gunsmith who is doing the dipping

Can you explain to me how this works and what, exactly, is dipping?

any thing can be dipped,some items easier then others
self etching primer,base coat, film, wash,the clear coat
the handgun you got may do better with ceramic coat

either way I can do it. you disassemble and say 15%

sand blast,deep clean,self etching primer coat, base coat color applied
cut film enough to cover the part.meat part to 80-90 degrees cut film
tape film with cuts to allow expansion,float film on water,when it starts to pucker, spray activater,dip it
wash it
dry it
clear coat,reassemble and you done
so you see it not slow and easy work where a local smith could do but its time verses money
most don't want to do many processes that I do,
ceracoat,teflon moly,duracoat films dips

so its a $$ but I like doing different stuff as long with my smithing
