Thinking of Duracoat-ing on my shotty. What prep is needed on the express reciever, besides a good degreasing? Is the tans as good as the black colors in durablity?
Is the flat black, factory finish, considered blue?
Just wanted to ask the refinishing guru a ?
I just aquired a Remington 5R yesterday at GB.com and Im planning to refinish it.
The stock is gonna be easy to do.
I figure I just remove it and prep it like I did my AR component's a few months back after I follow the R+D Precision DIY instruction's for texturing the stock were neede 1st.
But the action is what I have aquestion on.
Some people(GotM4,etc) tell me to have the finish bead blasted so whatever I use adheres properly but when I contacted Lauer custom weaponry the owner steve siad I could also use sandpaper or a scotchbrite pad.
Have you ever heard of those methods for prepping stainless steel?
later and hope you and your people had a good holiday season.
