Further to my thread about a new stock. I am thinking of either re-bluing my Tikka rifle or painting it with one of the paints by Duaracoat / Gun Kote etc. I am in the fortunate position where I should be able to get the rifle prepared , painted in our paint bays and the paint heat treated in an industrial oven if required. My questions are, have any of you used these products, how did they turn out, did you prep/spray the barrel and action as one?
My other rifle is a Remmy 700sps, I am not sure but do they come with this type of finish? The reason I ask is mine doesnt appeared to be blued and looks like it has some kind of sprayed product on it which is very hard wearing on the barrel area.
I am also thinking spraying some of my knives in this type of product as it looks excellent and will ease in cleaning and prevent rust. Picture shows what I mean.
