I see that Duracoat has come out in a spraycan with the hardener mixed in it already.. Have any of you tried this product yet? I'm thinking about trying it out on one of my duckguns .

If you try it let us know how it turns out, I am planning to dura coat a gun this spring/ summer when my garage won't need heat to cure it. If the rattle cans do ok maybe I won't have to mess with my airbrush.

ditto. Have an old 20ga that needs something done. From what I remember, there's a button on the bottom of the can that is pushed in to activate the hardener. You've got like 48 hours before it hardens inside the can.

I did it and it looked really good and was very durable! It was super easy too! Go for it!

I did it on an old BPS stalker I had. The finish was peeling off the barrel and receiver. I took it apart and media blasted all the metal, prepped and wiped it down with Acetone and did two thin coats in Magpul FDE. Turned out great. As far as I know it's still going strong. I took it hunting and my wife's cousin saw it. He'd seen it before and then after. He bought it from me the next day.
Here's a pic of it on the left. Next to my son's old 870. Color looks a little lighter than it really is but you get the idea. I wish I could find some before pics so you could see how bad a shape it was in. I'll keep looking.
