refinishing an Arsenal

At some point I'll probabally hit this thing with some Duracoat. It is amazing how quickly it wears, and while I do not mind the appearance, I want the metal protected for generations to come. I don't want to spray over the original sorry paint. Who has refinished one? What did you do? How is it holding up?
Right now I'm thinking park and duracoat HK black.

As far as I know, Ceracoat is supposed to be more durable than Curacoat. coat...koat... However they're spelled. Might want to look into the latter as opposed to the former.

As far as I can tell, I cannot spray that at home.
I have some experience with Duracoat and find it to be very good. The key to these finishes is the prep work. I can always re-spray at home anytime I choose.

Take it to Jim Fuller at Rifle Dynamics. It will run you about $300 for it to be sandblasted, parkerized, and moly-resined black.

I do believe you're on the right track with that...

Duracoat IS easier than Ceracoat. But both can be done at "Home". (as in, I know of a guy who has a home-based 2nd job doing just that). I think there are more steps involved, perhaps, in one vs. the other.

And you're right... PREP work is the key!

Looking forward to pics!
