Experiments

I was looking at some of my old, low end firearms and was wondering what I should do with them. I never shoot them anymore. They collect dust. Here are some of my options:
  • Sell them: Use the money to buy optics
  • Mothball them: Grease them up for ling term storage
  • Cache them: Greased, packed in a PVC Tube and stashed
  • Experiment: Hmmmmm...
So I decided to order a DuraCoat Shake ’N Spray kit. I saw this at the NRA Convention this year. The kit includes 4 ounces of DuraCoat, a LCW TruStrip Cleaner/Degreaser and a Preval Aerosol Sprayer. All you have to do is degrease the gun with the enclosed TruStrip and scrubbing pad, mix the DuraCoat finish in the provided jar, and apply using the sprayer.

The kit retails for $30 and available colors include matte black, OD green, woodland tan, woodland green, woodland brown, gun blue, Magpul flat dark earth, and DuraCoat parker. 

--I will let you know how it turns out!!

I have used these kits for coating a Ruger 10/22, as well as touching up a couple of AR barrels. Great kit and simple to use.
