    Yes I have a suppressor and a hand-guard I would like to paint but not for the $$$$ people are asking. If I had an action I wanted to paint it might be different but neither are worth the cost of a pro paint job. I have a little duracoat left over from ages ago but the hardener has gone hard. I wounder if normal two pack hardener would work?

    Not any more.
    Just got my T3 barrelled action done by Tony at Red Dot Rifles. Very pleased with the result.
    Experience. What you get just after you needed it.

    Relative term I guess but I was happy with the price.
    I just sent him the stripped barrelled action and it was $135 all up.

    Can you put up a pix when it's back together? I've got a similar job to do and considering either Dura or Cera for the coating.

    PM me your email address and I will email you a data sheet on how to use Gun Kote there is some equipment you will need but if you think you want to give it a go we can sort something out .
    I still recommend using some of the current applicators but New Zealanders do like trying to sort things out themselves .

    @Mathias. Here is the finished product of the Gun Kote done by Tony at Red Dot Rifles on my T3.
    Bottom photo is a close up of the detail lettering which I thought was a nice touch.
