Default My first Duracoat job

So I have always wanted to Duracoat one or two of my weapons but I did not want to hassle with mixing and I do not own a compressor and spray gun so I have been putting it off. Now Duracoat makes a can in can rattle can, so i had to try it..

Nice work, I like the contrasting color choice you made. FYI, Duracoat takes a couple weeks to really cure and harden up properly. Most folks don't know that. Not sure how it will hold up on the rubber but if it's not getting too much flex, it should be ok.
