I have a stainless gun I want done in a flat black. It has to not chip, flake, scratch easily, provide some lubricity and be solvent/oil resistant/proof.....

Well, what are my best options?

I personally prefer NP3, but you specified flat black.

Well, darn, you just had to go and specify black. I was going to say Tripp Cobra Chrome, but that of course is silver. MJD

Black T? Hard chrome + Krylon?

By far the best I've seen. Cerakote (Ironarmor) has out lasted and out performed anything I've seen.

DuraCoat is the easiest if you want to do it yourself. I have had no issues with the 5 guns I have that are DuraCoated.

It gets my vote. I could have had my rifle refinished with any type finish I wanted, and I chose Walter's Black T.

Black T is a pretty soft finish. Easily scratched.

I use Brownells Teflon/Moly. It sprays on with an airbrush and cures in the oven. I've used it with good results.
Others have had good results with Alumihyde, I've never tried it though.

What about the titanium-nitride finishes? Very hard (about as hard as chrome), black, and rust resistant. Or boron carbide. About the same, but in other color varieties.

I've had three rifles teflon coated by www.blackicecoatings.com/. I love it. I've scratched my hunting rifle a time or two, but when you ride around with it slung over your shoulder while riding a 4-wheeler through the woods, it's going to happen.

I don't have to oil it anymore, because the teflon does all the lubricating, besides, oil won't stick to it anyway. The parts a cinch to clean, just like a teflon skillet, just wipe them with a dry rag or dry brush and you're done.

I had my Desert Eagle re-done with something called Diamondkote it came out great, the guys who did it are fantastic also. www.mrarms.com

How has yours held up? The co. claims this Diamondkote can w/stand exposure to HCl. That's a pretty tall order. I wonder what conditions that particular test was performed under.

So far, it would seem that most durable finish is either CeraKote or Diamondkote, depending on the actual story.

I could not be happier with the way it has held up. I shoot this pig alot and it still looks brand new.

I just did a little informal "research", & am finding that the hardness of ceramic-based coatings makes them less than ideal for parts where there is surface-to-surface contact. This seems to be primarily because the extreme hardness results in surface galling due to the contact-friction, & apparently requires sufficient clearance to mitigate.

enforcer22 - what are your experiences in this regard?
