    Fellow BOG's I've talked to Pete Rafferty of RMPgunworks www.rmpgunworks.com of Topeka, Kansas. He is a certified applicator of Duracoat firearms finish of Lauer weaponry www.lauerweaponry.com here in my neck of the woods. I met him last july with Mr. Bill loughridge of Cylinder and slide during the kansas city gun collectors gunshow. I had a very good experience with duracoat particularly in its ease of application. Now, one of my plan is to introduce this product in the Philippines. I tried "guncoat" and the main problem with this product is it can not handle cleaning solvent particularly the dreaded GASOLINE which is basicaly used by many gun owners. I first tried DURACOAT last August and after the prescribed "curing Time" I soaked my 1911 in a bucket of Gasoline for 24hrs. To my surprise the finish is still intact.:shocked: and not gummy compared to Gunkote and AlumaHyde. My first batch of Duracoat Finish had arrived in manila last week. I might try it first in our local environment to see how will it hold against the humidity during the application process. After this I might ask for volunteer pistols for trials before I jump in on the importation process. So I hope to meet with you all fellow BOG's in the next coming months. Thanks

    BTW, meron na ba nag market nito sa atin? Salamat po.

    i both tried alumahyde and gunkote om my ar15 rifles with good results, although had not subjected them to gasoline.

    if ever, how much this duracoat would be?

    Hi Sir paltik45, I saw that duracoat finish on one of the armscor pistols displayed at their booth last november gunshow. The finish resembles that of an OD glock to me so I asked this guy from armscor, and he told me that it's a duracoat finish. Did'nt know though if they're distributing it here. :upeyes:
