bake on gunkote...anybody?
anybody have any experience with this? figured i'd go ahead and start looking into options for refinishing the beretta. i like the idea of this for the frame and its something i can do myself with good results if its a good product. i'd go with the brushed stainless if i do it and if anybody has pics post away. i'd rather go with this opposed to duracoat being that it can only be applied to metal and its heat cured unlike the duracoat. im tryin to picture how it would look on the frame with the slide plated but not sure what...i think nickle would be too much of a contrast and probably the same for polished hard chrome but maybe matte or brushed...i don't know i still got plenty of time to ponder ideas but any input you guys can give me on the gunkote would be helpful.
I've read a little about these type finishes but have to seen first hand how well it works or if it holds up well. If anyone has I'd like to know how the finish holds up over time compared to a parkerized finish.
here's something i found on a company's site that does it...
This ultra-thin, friction-reducing coating that lasts and lasts can now be applied to any metal gun part. It is so tough and durable that once it is applied, the only way to remove GUN-KOTE is to abrasive blast the part. It is resistant to all known gun solvents and thinners. Each coat is approximately .0004" thick so GUN-KOTE can be used on both internal and external parts where a close-tolerance fit is required without having to worry about interference. This makes GUN-KOTE the perfect, maintenance-free coating for handgun slides and frames, shotgun receivers and magazine tubes, rifle actions and bolts, anywhere you need an ultra-thin, self-lubricating, permanent coating that protects and wears like crazy.
I'd rather hear from somebody that has it done tho, especially the brushed stainless color because if it looks cheap i'd rather just go ahead and plate the frame too.
