    Proper prep work is key. Use duracoat.

    Paint is for cars and houses, not guns.

    I duracoated my colt 1911. It had severe holster wear when I got it, now it looks brand new. Duracoat is a very good way to go

    Can you duracoat the plastic frame? I thought most of the gun paint required some heat curing?

    There are some shops who do this professionally, for a price. http://www.ccrrefinishing.com/information.html

    Some duracoat is chemically cured rather than heat. Its supposed to be ideal for polymer firearm parts

    All the duracoat kits with the prevalent sprayer are all chemically cured. I used these kits on over 6 firearms. I mainly used them in the first place because most the parts I was doing wouldn't fit in my oven.now that all the parts are coated im really happy with the results, nice and even, very durable
