    Paint...

    Can anybody recommend a good paint for barreled actions that gun oil won't remove?

    matte black chimney flue stuff in a can works well - got to bake it to make it harden though - an old oven would be good

    A product made by Valspar called LIC 43 two pack system hard as the hobs of hell.

    For best results for a matt finish apply with plenty of air coming out of the gun and apply very lightly many times.
    Heavy coats will cause paint to gloss.

    If its not too thick it still shouldn't gloss...stir it well though. I usualy add a little 40 and its a little "Blacker" and harder

    Just done a rifle 5 minutes ago

    Linkup paint supplies, its not to deer for the paint... hardners isn't that cheap, you would have to ring as I get trade prices... From memory I pay $40 a litre + $90 a litre for harder but its a 4-1 mix so you dont need much harders and they should poor some off and mix you a 10% gloss to matt brew in a lesser amount as you need F/all 100ml should be plenty but 250 is usualy as small as they go.

    If it has surface rust a spray of Brunox primer/rust kill (can get it in spray cans but $60?) should prevent any future issues but if its mint steel no primer required

    I just use a spray can of Wattyl Super-Etch on my Ruger 44, It's cheap, easy to use, quite tough, easy to touch up & looks pretty mint
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!
