View Full Version : Duracoat
i am wanting to refinish my rifle with Duracoat. does anyone know of a Shop in the Salt Lake Valley that i can get it refinished? any help would be appreciated
Gallensons maybe, or possibly Impact Guns or they should know who can.
Or as an alternative you can 'do it yourself'. I've been building a FAL and I've Duracoated the furniture myself without too much problem. You do need some kind of a spray paint system, such as HLVP or an airbrush, then you're good to go.
There's a lot of dealers online that carry DuraCoat for the do-it yourselfer. The paint and hardener are relatively inexpensive. I think I paid $25.00. The compressor for my airbrush set me back another $80.00 but still probably cheaper than having someone do it.
thanks for the lead. do you have any pics of your FAL? i shot one at Impact in Ogden and i had a blast. the main problem is i need to sandblast my gun any ideas on a local place to do that? im trying to do a cheaper refinish without buying the compressor. i know there is a company named Lauer (sp?) where you can buy a do it yourself duracoat refinish.
While sandblasting, actually they usually use walnut hulls, is usually done by the pros for the best finishing I don't think it's an absolute requirement unless your gun has a lot of surface rust. That's just my opinion though and I'm new at this myself, so...
Here's a few leads.

I'm not having my FAL blasted but I am going to parkerize it myself. The parkerization process gives the steel a protected surface on its own, plus it provides a good surface for the DuraCoat to adhere to.
This is my first project like this so we will see how it goes. I'll post a few pics when I can get my hands on the wifes camera :)
