I think you could do just as good a job if you do it yourself. I hear KG Gun Coat and Norrells Molyresin are very easy to apply even for an amatuer. But the Wilson price of $200 isn't bad if you disassmeble it yourself.

ETA: This thread says Wilson uses Molyresin as their Armour Tuff finish.

Not sure what ARMOR-TUFF® is. Maybe Dupont Teflon-S? The industrial coating, not the cookware version.

I've got everything dissasembled, just waiting on a barell to show up via the big brown truck...I've never really used an airbrush just once or twice at the most, I would hate too turn this into a cluster !!!! Thanks for the info...

I used KG to "kote" my AR and it's great stuff. It's no safe queen, and the coatingis holding very well. The eo-tech was done recently which is why it looks so clean. I also did the black parts to make them black-black. It was really easy to do. Unlike a spray can, you can really control how you spray out of an airbrush by regulating the distance, speed, pattern, and pressure of the air. Not to mention that you can make custom colors (like I did to mine).

If you follow Stickman's guide, you can't go wrong. Norrell's MolyResin IS what Wilson uses. Give it a try, you will love it!
