Anyone come across these kits before. It's a home do hydrographing printing kit. Probably not as easy as it looks but still cheaper than sending a rifle away to be done.

I have a trusty old Remy 1100 semi-auto shotgun I use for wildfowling that cost me £100 some years ago that could do with a serious spruce up (it's referred to as the 'spare oar' when we're in the boat it's so battered). I thought it would make a good experiment beforte trying anything daft on the other rifles.

There's a video or two on youtube with some guy demonstrating it.

Any of the dealers on the site thought about importing it?

If its anything like what Hydrographics do its not worth doing, its not salt/corrosion resistant, it will come off with cleaning fluids over time, it looks nice but just isnt hard wearing enough. IVe been doing coatings for nearly 4 years and all the coating I use is far beter than the film applications becasue they are corrosion and solvent resistant.

I was wondering if you chaps may sell a clear Duracoat 'laquer' to go over something like this as a protective layer? I was thinking of a Duracoat kit as a possible solution for the old gun. The only reason I knew about this kit is because I was interested how they do it and was looking on youtube for demos when I saw the home do kit.

Hopefully no-one will mention the other 'duracoat' as a cheaper solution and start the old discussions all over again.............. oh sweet Jesus, I've done it now!! :doh: :lol:

Doh, dont mention that word....! :D

I do all colours and finishes, however, the solvent in the coating may well eat through the film! :doh:
