This Beretta cougar 8045 D was a carry gun beater I traded for and did a Wheeler ceramic bake job on in matt black. And also used Hogue custom checkered grips and screws.Image Enlarger

Looks good!  I'm a dura-coat/parkerizing kind of guy.  Talk to me about the prep process…did you sand blast first or just strip the blue?

Either process don't require stripping bluing. Scuff with scotch bright or steel wool if you like. Really simple to prep unless you have a piece that is really bad.

Good products for hiding rust pitting etc.

Wheeler cerama coat is really good stuff !

The good :Available in spray can and easy to use, No sanding or stripping required if you have a good working surface, just say rust free etc, you wash the parts down with a residue free degreaser, CNC break cleaner works fine. And spray 3 light coats.Then bake.

The Bad: has to be baked at 350 for 1 hour but you can hold the part over until you are ready to bake there is no hurry to get it in the oven, but coat will not cure with out baking.

Only available in matt black

Gun must be completly taken down for the baking process, you must have a part that can with stand baking @ 350 for 1 hour

——————————————————————————————————–

Dura Coat : Also a very good product and easy to use

The good:

Available in multitude of colors

no baking required

easy to use, just dont take short cuts

best to use dura coat prep cleaner and finish ( no short cut)

dries fast, touch in 20 mins, handle 1 hr, assy gun in 5 hr, shoot in 24 hr

Dont require complete tear down if you dont want to, if you can mask the area you dont want coated.

The bad: Really is none

you have to mix in two parts hardner and color

you have to use airbrush or spray gun ( I used airbrush and pancake compressor)

If you use either product, pay attention to close tolerence moving parts areas, if the area is tight and you thick coat that area you are in for fun !

Dura Coat claims there finish gets better with age ,, Harder , durable. I dont profess to know about that, but I can say it does look good when done.

Hope this helps

I'm going to look at a DW this weekend, may be a candidate for Dura-coat depending on amount of blue left on it Laugh
