Would Norrells molycoat be ok to use on a stainless barrel or would it be better to use the Duracoat hi temp coating? Anyone have any first hand experience with this? I used Duracoat hi temp on my operator and it has been great. Just wondering if the Norrells or standard Duracoat would hold up to the heat. Thanks for your help, Tom

from what I recall from previous posts, Duracoat hi temp is what you should use on the barrel.

Norrell would be better than the Duraheat or Cerakote.

The high-temp coatings are not abrasion resistant and will scratch off much easier.

The Norrell is high temp enough to do a stainless match barrel and more dureable.

Even on silencers I prefer Norrell (or Gunkote) to the high-temp coatings. I only burned it off once and I had to use a belt-fed.

Make sure you sand blast the barrel first or no finish will stick.
The sand I use is Quickcreat medium grit leveling sand it can be had for less than $10.00 for a
100 lb. bag.

The instructions for Norrell say to use Aluminum oxide and you must not use glass beads.

Are you sure sand is sharper than glass beads?

You guys are great. Thanks for the input. I've read the fantastic refinishing thread and had great results with Norrells. I just wasn't sure that it was right for a barrel. Thanks again. Tom
