    I want to get a new G19 and have the whole thing duracoated in ACU, I am just curious how the carry guns that have been coated are holding up? Other then a class I am going to this spring it wont be in and out of the holster alot, I will use a stock one for most shooting. Thanks.

    Somebody has to have a cool carry gun? I know the slide will wear with holstering, I just want to know about the frame? If I do this I am gonna buy 2 G19's so I can carry one while I have the other one coated.

    I don't know how carry guns are holding up, but I did use duracoat on my mossberg and I shot 300 rounds through it in one day, the heat didnt do anything to it. Holding up well

    I had a Ruger MK II Duracoated. While it hasn't been holstered much, it has been shot a lot. Still looks like it did when it was first done.

    I have two G-21's from 1991 that I carried one or the other of till 2003 when I retired had both slides duracoated in 2006 and have been useing one as a house gun and the other as a carry gun holstered every day and under a shirt or coat can't tell the differance between them yet, they both go to the range a couple times a month and fire about 200-300 rounds a month from each. Like I said I cannot see a diferance in them yet and it has been three and a half or four years since the duracoat. Don't remember the exact month but I think it was spring of '06 that they got the duracoat.
