if it is a dipped gun I always hang them in the sun, disassemble, Degrease and give them a coat of PPG matte cleat coat. I have never had to do this on Benelli as It seems they have a very good clear from the factory. Remington, Mossberg and the Browning / Winchesters I have owned do not seem to have a very robust clear over the ink from the factory. I have actually stripped the camo finish from Remington's and Mossberg's with brake cleaner. I use this same cleaner on my Benelli's (and other dipped guns after the PPG clear) and it never bothers the finish at all.

Banging around In the boat is just part of hunting and it adds "beauty marks" to the finish. :thumbsup: These marks are necessary to make a duck gun work properly :yes:

CeraKote. That is some extraordinarily tough stuff. Gun needs to be bead blasted prior to application, though, so it's probably best left to the professionals.

Cannon is right. Cerakote is as tough as it gets. Duracote runs a very close second and can be done yourself.

I saw a Silver get the factory camo stripped by hosing out the receiver with carb cleaner. Ran out the port and onto the camo on the top of the receiver. Done a fine job on it, unintentionally. I assume it was durakote?

NO! That's diura-touch, AKA "dura-crap." Duracoat is a very tough paint. Dura-touch is crappy latex over a film dip finish.

Gotchya. Good to know. I didn't want anyone to get that done thinking it was very tough.
