I have a rifle that has been refinished in brownells bake on finish dark park color, and Im wanting to refinish the rifle with a duracoat finish. Can I put it on over the brownells finish or do i need to remove the old finish? The brownells finish is on pretty good and it wood be tough to remove.

Smithy,

Check HERE for the entire Duracoat story and process

Surely there is a mention of what it will adhere to and not.

I don't see why it wouldn't (seal over your current finish)

I know this......the Duracoat finish is awesome when done properly

good luck with your project

is the duracoat aerosol finish the same as the normal duarcoat mix. Is it still as strong? Any comments?

Dont know that but, If it were my favorite rifle, I would have professional refinishers do the work.

that way:

1) it's done right first time

2) do-it-yourself projects typically are done better the 2nd time, better yet the 3rd time, etc. so I wouldn't attempt to learn this skill on my rifle and risk screwing it up- That's me, but you may well be quite accomplished with this type thing

3) It isn't that expensive, ($140, I believe they quote in their Services section) especially if you break the rifle down (dis-assemble) for them, and re-assemble when you get it back

Edited to add: Here is a company that has location in Iowa and are Certified Duracoat Finishers, a designation Lauer and Duracoat suggests is a major qualification
