Duracoat

I had my omega out in the rain during the season and now I feel like I should have bought a stainless encore. I need to do something with the barrel. It has some small pits that wont come off. Looking at it I know I want to do something about the blueing, because TC's blueing sucks. I was kind of thinking a duracoat pattern the whole thing, or possibly using the gun kote air cure to because I doubt I will be able to get it in my oven with the 28" barrel. Any recommendations? or and idea to work on the pits?

you would be surprised what fits in an oven diagonally
I fit an SKS with no stock just fine.
there are a few kick ass gun coatings you just have to figure the best one for your needs.
so what do you need ?

Well, what are the different coatings and what are they suitable for?

We need a 'newbies guide to selecting a gun coating system'

I was hoping you would pipe in here. The guns not a show piece its a hunting rifle but the damn thing shouldn't rust up like that. I want a good coating that can handle getting a bit went, and be low glare. If I can add some break up to it at the same time thats a bonus. Hell coat eh barrel solid and do some green black brown breakup on the synth stock.

this could take a while.


I will start with Duracoat:
2 part must be sprayed coating, air hardening but can be assisted with heat, gets more durable over time, is not a "hard" coating as it still has epoxy like properties (doesnt chip), non-self-lubricating (no moly), can be most any color and mixed to get whatever color, can be glossy or matte depending on what color chose but can be clear coated over for uniform sheen (they sell clear), chemical resistant, salt spray resistant, and very hard to remove.

Hmmm.... my .270 sure would look good with all the metal/scope painted OD. I considered just rattle canning it but was afraid it would come off the first time I cleaned it.
