What do the camo finishes done by Lauer Custom Weaponry cost for a rifle? I'm wanting to have my Rem. 700 done, just looking for a ballpark figure. It has a wood stock, can that be painted or only the synthetic ones?

I have no idea. A can of Krylon cost about $4.00. For less than $25.00 you can get all the colors you need and a can of clear coat.

A rifle carried normally is a large horizantal target indicator. Break up the pattern with big vertical blotches.

You have to remember, its not just 'paint'. If you want to spray paint your $1,000 rig with Krylon, have at it... If you want to refinish your rifle with a top notch, last forever protective finish, call Lauer.

You should read up on their website about Duracoat and the process they use.

Actually, it is just paint. Unless its a chemical process like parkerizing, bluing, or case hardening.

Sort of like this?


The Camouflage Process

All firearms are completely disassembled (down to the very last pin)

Each part is chemically cleaned and blasted

Each part is baked to ensure dryness, remove impurities, and to slightly expand the metal for optimum adhesion of finish

Each part is individually Parkerized

A proprietary coating is applied to the heated parts. (colors depend on type of finish; most camo finishes are a four color process)

A proprietary clear finish is applied

The finished firearm is baked at a constant temperature ranging from 108 degrees to 140 degrees. (depending on the type of stock)



I would like to point out that they repark your weapon 'down to the very last pin'.

I am not trying to flame you, its just that what you get from Lauer is not just a paint job, hence the high cost.

You cant Parkerize wood, stainless steel, or aluminum. Only carbon steel can be parkerized.

The Camo coating they apply is paint.

Kevin is this your rifle, how has the finish held up? Great looking rifle man.






The top picture I added light and contrast to for better clarity, If you think it looks better than the original you can save it also.
