Some paints don't hold up well to exposure to chemicals such as bore solvents. Some have a nasty habit of melting and bubbling when you really heat up the barrel, dumping a few mags. I have no idea what the Duplicolor will do, but there's not much you can put on you can't strip off later.

I wonder how well the Birchwood/Casey paint holds up then? I used the flat black to cover a ugly scratch on the barrel
