VHT makes the header paint and it's pretty good stuff. It has Ceramic in it and it's good to 2200* if I remember correctly. Pepboy's carrys it. Rustoleum makes the BBQ grill paint. You can find it at Walmart. Brake caliper paint would also work.


That might be a good direction to go. I used BBQ paint on beater AR and carb cleaner turned it into a sappy mess

Actually, BBQ and high temp paints are SOFT, with alittle heat at all they will rub off. There maid to be pliable so they dont crack and peel off with heat.... just because it can handle 2200 degrees does NOT mean that your range bag wont rub it off.

The BEST is plain old krylon, harsh chemicals will still remove it but its alot more durable.

I tried the BBQ paint on an AK. Gun cleaning solvents took it right off.

Call up Brownells and order some Aluma-Hyde II. CLP, Hoppes #9, and brake cleaner won't hurt it.

I had no problems with krylon.

I don't do multiple mag dumps, but I don't shoot slowly either.

im not worried about heat since even after multiple mag dumps i havent noticed the barrel get hot at all since its a 22

Norrells works great. I have over 1k through my 6x45 and it still looks great.

Are you guys "baking" the paint? I've used grill paint a lot, and use a torch to heat up the parts(Mostly FH's) and then spray them. The BBQ paint bake's onto it very well.

Any high heat rated paint will do. I made the mistake of using regular krylon on my AR barrel and after 4 mags it ended up wiping off on my case when i laid it down.
