Re: What exactly is Duracoat.
Cerakote can me made matte, satin or gloss by adjusting the amount of hardener in the mix. If it is applied right with a good hand it will look like a professional job.
It isnt hard to do but does take some experience and skill with a pray gun. I use HVLP guns to apply. and I have one for dark hues and one for light hues. The trick is in very very thin even coats. Start with the hard to reach areas and finish up with the easy spots.
IMO, it isnt something just anybody can pick up a spray gun and do. It is very easy to mess up if you dont know what youre dealing with.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
