Allright I just picked up a Mossberg 500. Its in desert camo and I think I want to change it. Does anyone know a place. I'm in Akron Ohio. I don't mind shipping but don't want to if I don't have to.

The finish? Might be cheaper to buy another gun. Google gun refinishing, there are many.

I also live in Akron, Ohio. Do you know of a good place to shoot shotguns? I bought an 870 tactical with the pistol grip and i have yet to shoot it

Where are u located? Is this something u have done before?
i'm in raleigh, i've duracoated several guns of mine. just solid colors on them, but adding a pattern wouldnt hard. you could probably even do it yourself. key to a successful paint or camo paint job is prep. got to have all grease and oil off it and then sand everything down. set a base coat and then use some sort of stencil to make a pattern. for digital camo, i'd use graph paper with random patterns cut out of it.

here's my mossy, it's british DPM green right now, trying to decide what kind of pattern i wanna put over it, or if i'll just leave


i also did my SKS and 700P, but I dont have any pics of those right now. i did my pistol as well, but it's just black, so it's really nothing special.

duracoat is good stuff, i did the bolt on my mossy and my SKS and it still looks like the day i did it. i doubt it would be very cost effective to send it down though. you can probably find a gunsmith up there to do it. my smith does cerakote paint jobs on some of his clients guns. a precision rifle builder may do it for you too.

If he googles cerakote there are all kinds of people who will give it the finish he wants. Personally, I don't buy guns that I don't like. I did have a pistol refinished but I sent it to ruger so the finish wouldn't look like a teenager did it in his garage.
