Hey, so I would like to duracoat the lower on my glock. I was concerned though after hearing that you need to heat the part before spraying the duracoat on. I thought this might warp the polymer and ruin the gun. How would this be done without ruining my pride and joy?

The Glock frame flexes quite a bit under recoil, as it's designed to. I'm not so sure I'd trust any coating that has to be hard enough to be crack and chip resistant, yet retain the flexibility needed. If you find something that stands the test of time, let me know.

Not all DuraCoat is heat treated. I am gettingready to start my DuraCoat business and the type I am doing requires not heating. And yes, you do NOT want to use the heat treated style on your frame. It will destroy it.

What color are you looking to take the frame?

Well I had at first wanted to do the OD green with the black slide. The slide right now is stripped down to a dull metallic finish. I was going to have it redone but now Ill probably duracoat it back to a flat black. Im leaning towards doing a coyote brown or desert sand frame. Ive heard some allright things about the krylon so I might just do the krylon on the frame and then duracoat the slide to ultimately have the flat black slide and a coyote frame.

Are you going to do your own DuraCoat or do you have someone else to do it?

I did some dremmel work and stippling on my glock frame and it needed recoloring. I used black Krylon Fusion spray paint for plastic that I got at Wal Mart. It's several months old and been shot a lot and carried every day and still looks like it was just done.

Don't know if they'd have the color you're looking for though.

I don't have a before and after shot but can try to take some if you'd like to see the result.

No duracoat requires heating.

I did the lower of my G31 in desert sand. The Duracoat is holding up well so far. When I have a few more minutes, I'll post a pic.

DuraCoat requires no heating. DuraBake does require heating. There is a difference between the two.

I had no problems with the Duracoat. I did not heat any part. I used the standard Duracoat paint.

Nice! Was that a hard to do? Did you use the Lauer templates or the Bulldog (http://catalog.bulldogarms.com/)?

I cut the bad boys out myself. It wasn't too bad. Here's a link I posted from start to finish. I've never used Bulldog. Have you? If so how's the quality?

Never used any. I have only done single color Duracoat so far. I am itching to try the camo, though.

The pistol is even more impressive knowing you cut your own stencils.

I want to duracoat another one of my glocks but I can't think of a good color. I am doing just the lower and have thought about doing it in blue, grey, white, red.... I just don't know. Suggestions?
