Has anyone ever had this process done? www.bearcoat.com/prodserv.htm

Any feedback, pros and cons would be appreciated.

Here another link of a gun that has the finish:

Thanks

The descripiton of Bearcoat sounds a lot like GunKote, but I can't be sure. They all use the most technical terms possible to make you go "ooooh". I used Mack's Gunkote and it looks similar (www.shootiniron.com).

They are NOT the same. To try the different finishes out, I sent a 30 round mag to bearcoat & one to Mack's also. The bearcoated one is a much smoother, uniform finish, while Mack's Gunkote is a bit rough (had to sand a little to keep it from being so tight in the magwell.) All in all I like the bearcoat finish better, but they lost my mag for about a month. I'd like to think they have better luck keeping track of entire weapons...

Is teflon worth the price?

That would depend on your personal value of whatever you're considering having refinished.
I'm considering sending them my blued 590.

I understand that the Birdsong Black-T finish is better, but I've never tried it. I've heard raves about its quality.

BEAR COAT is real Industrial Teflon-S.
Les Baer uses them as does Weatherby and Cabela's.....probably the best in the industry.
The service and quality is #1..as is their lifetime warranty. I usually get my guns back in about 2 weeks....birdsong takes months and flakes right off when you run the slide back and forth across the frame..yuck !
