Does anyone know of a Duracoat dealer in SE Wi?
Interwebs is showing Baraboo as the closest.
I thought CommiWorld ( camping world) used to carry it, but maybe I was wrong  
Does anybody have a contact?
I'm looking for the "at home" kit, as a $160 quote on a  beater 20ga Mossberg 500 is kinda spendy.

That is what I'm thinking...
Just don't know how well it will hold up for the abuse sessions it's going to receive.

I see Midway has the DuraCoat kits for $30.  I believe you'd need a cheap airless sprayer to apply though or a $10 Harbor Freight air brush.

I've bought Duracoat at Midway USA for years, and I've also bought some directly from Lauer, the manufacturer (they're located in Chippewa Falls WI) when Midway didnt have a color i just had to have.

A word of caution....

After you do the Mossberg, you'll start buying lots of "junkers", just so you can fix them up, and "paint" them. It's addictive.. i've got a safe full of them.

Fwiw...I use an airbrush i bought way back in the 1980s to do lettering and custom paint on commercial trucks, and I did a few snowmobiles with it.

Also, don't waste money on their cleaner/degreaser. Non chlorinated brake cleaner from Walmart or Menards works just as good, if not better. Whatever you use to prep it, do it twice just to be sure. Proper cleaning and prep is the key to it adhering and staying on.

Take it apart, tape it off, spray it with brake cleaner and rattle can it.  I use the Krylon Ultra-Flat.  When it scratches, touch it up.  Easy and cheap.
