Refinishing Alloy
Does anyone refinish alloy (aluminum)? I looked at Star PD and an old Smith revolver that have been carried alot, and the finish is worn on the edges, and was wondering if this can be fixed? Any idea how much to refinish these?

anywhere from $3.79 a spray can on up. Just depends on what you want to do. And how much work is required for what you want.
Some people have talked about different coatings throughout the FTF. Do a search on alumacoat. (I think that is how you spell it.)

Duracoat is also great on alloys..

The original coating on the Star is anodizing.

I will put in a good word for CCR Refinishing here. They are honest, skilled and they do excellent work. They are also very nice people. The turn around is pretty fast too.

They refinished my 1911 in "House Black" for me and it not only looks great, it's holding up very well.
