    Help - Duracoat or similar

    Need a hand guys !

    I want to do a DIY refinishing project on a rifle. Duracoat looks like it will fit the bill, but it looks like a mission to get it shipped to NZ, or, very expensive to buy it here & limited colors available. Any advice on alternatives or how to source it cost effectively ? I have airbrush etc so no issues with the tools to do the job, just wanting some advice from some of you who have no doubt gone down this rabbit hole before.

    thx.

    It does chip on sharp edges and it you drop it on a rock it will scratch but otherwise it is holding up well. If you can leave it for a month or so to cure, that will make it stronger....
