    I recently purchased a G22 2nd Gen police trade in and mechanically it is in great shape but the slide finish is shot. Anyone have experience with these two finishes/vendors/costs etc....??????????

    I used a product called 'Armacoat' in Flat Black (Similar to Duracoat) and had excellent results.

    I used Laquer Thinner to clean the stripped slide, (remember to removed the firing pin liner) and stuck a metal rod in there to hold the slide while I painted it.

    I bought a cheap spray gun and dad has a compressor... I just coated it, then put it in the oven, replaced the liner and it looks brand new!

    Duracoat is easy and simple to use, but takes about three weeks to fully cure. You can shoot the prior to the three weeks being over but the finish will wear quicker. If you are looking at ceramic finishes, look at duraheat which is also made by duracoat. With duraheat, there is no mixing, and it only takes a week for it to completely cure. The duraheat is a little more expensive but worth it. In my experience with both finishes, the duraheat seems to hold up much better to normal wear and tear.

    Why not just send the slide to Glock for refinishing. It is only around $50.00 and will look like new.

    Cerakote is by far the best product out there. Nothing compares to Cerakote in terms of durability and longevity.

    Check out www.nicindustries.com for more info on how it compares to duracoat and gunkote. The two top finishes available.

    Cerakote is also used by the military and most major gun manufactures.

    Shoot me an email if you have any questions.

    Cerakote or Moly-resin are the best! CCR does perfect work, just contact Matt and he'll help you out.
