    Sika Stabber Bergara ba13 I Duracoted

    so got some of this stuff in Rhodesian green, cos its different, and cool
    Read the instructions many times over and waited a couple weeks to let it sink in.
    Still made some mistakes, like dropping the bloody barrel/action while on the last coat
    Need to wait longer between "light" coats

    Maybe buy a hobby air sprayer, cos the Preval one I had sprayed quite large droplets.
    Have the odd run, probably me and "just one more coat"
    Overall I'm happy with the end result, will leave in the safe for a couplee weeks to harden.

    Ill get some more Dura in blue/black to do me BSA 243 soon.

    Very nice, not my choice of color, but each to their own. Nice job.

    I used a standard HVLP spray gun with a 1.2mm needle (i think) and thought that was a touch too big for doing action work. Fine for stocks. A detail gun or a large airbrush might work. The trouble you would run into with the airbrush would be getting the viscosity of the paint thin enough to spray properly.
