Has anybody ever used this paint before?

I was looking on the web and saw a glock that had a soft woodland camo finish with this stuff.

How would you cure it on a polymer frame?

How durable is this stuff?

Thanks

I think it works pretty well. But it is my understanding that ya need an air sprayer to put it on, and there is a lot of prep work if ya wanna do it right - Many refinishing places put it on faily cheap - ya may wanna do it that way before ya mess up a several hundred dollar handgun...



CCR Refinishing is supposedly a very good place to get this done.

http://www.parabelluminc.com is were i saw the camo pattern.

I have a nail gun compressor and was thinking of screwing on a small airwater seperator and buying a grex air brush.

I have painted for years houses,cars, but i have never tried painting a camo pattern does any body know info books, or webpage that has any info?

If i just wanted the one hand gun painted i would send it some were.

But i have 5 mags, mossberg590sp,streamlight mx3,safariland holester,

& in the future i plan on building dsa para fal that would also like having matching camo pattern. Alot of money to be spending on painting all

of this. Thanks for the reply Ship Wreck.

killer,

I've used the KG Gunkote before with great success.

Never attempted anything on polymer, just metal to include stainless.

The stainless needed to be treated with K-phos prior to being sprayed.

ShipWreck is right, the prep work has to be done right or it won't adhere properly.

The one secret I found with Gunkote was to "bake" the part about twice as long as described in the instructions and then second coat it and bake per instructions.

I did a 1911 a couple years ago and it still is holding up quite well.

is that with gunkote because i have seen were people have painted

the glock polymer frame is there durablity issues ?

Dura cout has a black oxide color that would match the slide.

The thing is I shark skinned the frame and back strap .

I just want to seal it up a bit with paint so it doesnt look as dirty.

Thanks for the reply
