Looking to refinish a couple of old lower receivers - what is the best, most durable product for some one to use at home?

thanks,

Paul

There is a thread on this below, follow stickmans link and use Moly Resin. I have it on my Glock slide, it is real easy to spray and very very durable if you do it right.

AlumaHyde is a great product for what it is, there is no doubt about it. If you are looking for a higher quality and more professional product, look at the Norrells or Duracoat.

For best, most durable, most economical and easiest to apply, I would vote Norrells.

Read this link and see what you think.

The only before and after pics I have are of a 1911, but it should give you the same basic idea. Let me know if I can answer any questions for you.

Doing all the metal parts, but none of the plastics? I would say 3 ARs.

Doing the upper, lower and carry handle on the below AR15 was about 25% (or a little less) of a small bottle. It was done in grayish black Norrells.

I've always thought and still do Aluma-Hyde is the best all round finish especially for handguards and small items, including mags. I do like gun-kote for an AK type rifle or even an FAL, but I'm going to have to order some of the Norrells Resin and try it. It does look like a quality product.
