I was wondering about the quality of duracoat and duracoat finishes. I know that it is probably pretty good since I have seen a lot of people that have used it, but I have never really looked into it.

Is the finish more prone to chipping, cracking, or otherwise scratching then a normal AR finish?

Does it run into any issues over time with color fading or anything?

Is it difficult to apply correctly?

It will chip easier than the anodizing on your receivers, but that is because it of what it is.

Duracoat is similar to a 2 part epoxy paint, there are several other finishes available, some of which you can do yourself, some of which are better for a shop to do.

If basic colors are involved, I'll use Norrells just about every time, if special colors are needed, DC has more choices.

DC has too many f*cking color choices with no way of promoting them but for crappy pictures on a web page or just as crappy pictures in a brochure they charged me $3 for that BLOWS.

I still use it though...
