Biloxi, Mississippi (Ammoland) If you are a gun guy or girl the chances are high that you have one, perhaps more than one, rifle or shotgun that you’d like to refinish.
You may have even considered refinishing the gun on several occasions but always talked yourself out if it due to the cost of paying someone else to do it or the perceived difficulty of doing it yourself.
Let’s face it; few folks are going to pay a shop one to two hundred dollars to put a new finish on a gun that might only be worth a couple hundred dollars. That’s like investing in a new paint job on a ten year old pickup truck. Most people can’t talk themselves into spending that much money.
What about investing thirty or forty dollars in a professional looking gun finish? Could you swing that much to make that old, hand-me-down shotgun look new again?
DuraCoat All in One Aerosol Kit
Savvy gun people already know that DuraCoat firearms refinishing products are owned and distributed by Lauer Custom Weaponry. Steve Lauer is the wizard behind the curtain making it all happen. Last year Steve released the new DuraCoat Aerosol can (can in a can complete unit).
At the SHOT Show in January of 2014 Steve made a good thing better by announcing the Aerosol Can Kit. The end user can now purchase a single color 12 ounce aerosol can of DuraCoat along with a 6 ounce can of TruStrip (cleaner/degreaser). The complete kit is less than $40.
DuraCoat Project Weekend
What You Need
Before I began my weekend project of refinishing my guns and gear, I needed to secure a few items. Naturally, I had ordered the DuraCoat aerosol cans and TruStrip. In addition, I purchased a protective face mask to minimize the fume intake.
Also acquired were a pair of work gloves, a packet of Scotch pads, and a roll of blue painter’s masking tape. Aside from the DuraCoat all of the other gear was relatively inexpensive and easy to find. All told it was less than a $20 investment.
