Anyone know what paint is used to get a finish like this? Also how durable are painted guns?
why not just buy a factory OD glock?
Glock makes OD frames but the color doesn't look quite right. I know Duracoat will stick and is used fairly often but I've not seen enough of them first hand to be able to make a comparison.
Duracote, Gunkote/Moly Resin?
I think Gunkote and Moly Resin are a bit more durable because you have to cure them in the oven. If you do a decent prep job it can be pretty durable. I've never handled anything finished with Duracote so I can't comment on that.
I don't want a Glock I want to know what paint was used so I can use it on a different gun
Ok to put a plastic gun in the oven?
Jealous the Glock looks better then the M&P
I don't think it looks better at all. But that's neither here nor there.
It's suppose to go in for an hour at 300°F. You can do like 250°F for a little longer and still get pretty much the same results.
I would guess it would hold up, but you might want to make sure.. A couple AKs I did had rubber pieces on them, I just sprayed then threw them in the oven and they didn't melt or anything.
I just don't know how well it would stick to the polymer. I know Moly Resin makes a special kind for plastics that you don't have to bake (or maybe you don't have to bake it as hot.) Your best bet is to email the guys at Gunkote or Norrell's Moly Resin and ask.
yea, I would highly doubt your glock would turn into a puddle.
The front sight on that shotgun is pretty rediculous looking.
