krylon

So I decided to test exactly how good krylon is



So far I'm pleased, It's kind of dry, says it will take about a week before it will be chip resistant, so I have 6 more days to go. If all goes well and it proves sturdy, I will be doing my AR the same way, small parts and furniture black, barrel and receivers FDE

Don't laugh, I've used it on older shotguns with great results for years and when I tell people its painted they can't believe it. I prefer the high-heat engine paint, seems its harder and after curing good I'd say it won't flake at all. As in bluing, the results are in the prep, sand, degrease and proper hanging so you can walk around as you spray getting a even coat and then leave it ALONE for 7 days. I only use black glossy paint however !

Choose your bore solvent carefully. Or keep extra spray cans on hand for touch up.

All of the Krylon painting I have seen is for camoflauge. If it gets chipped or bore solvent cuts a little of it, they just touch it up with some more paint.

I've not seen it done to just put a nice finish on a weapon.

I've read that krylon has the same properties as duracoat, plus it was available here and is cheap as anything. I also don't need an airbrush.

Come next week, I'll go run a few boxes of slugs and target loads in it quickly to see what the heat does in wyoming temps.

Is there a particular Krylon version that needs to be used or do they all work?

This was part of their "camo" series, it's ultra flat and advertised to be made for sporting and hunting equipment.

I painted my Weatherby Vanguard stock with some Krylon "Fusion" camo paint. Going to hit it with some clear sooner or later... unless I decide to just lightly rub it down with some fine emery paper to take the roughness out of the finish.
