I have a rifle that was duracoated...I think I bought it about seven years ago. It's not a bad finish, but what I've read about cerakote just sounds like a better deal. Duracote WILL flake off some. I've also used a finish called Moly-Resin on a couple of items and I am convinced it is tougher than duracote...easy to use also.
I'm here to give and receive knowledge, not affirmation or adoration. If you don't like it, mierda dura
