Im wondering if powedercoating is a decent coat for firearms. I can help but notice how cheap it is at harbor freight and i have a friend that can do it as a favor. If its a good coating that stands up to enviromnetal factors why not? I normally use hi temp engine paint that works.

Make sure he understands that getting it all over bearing surfaces is not a good idea. Are you going to be able to find any that will not look so shiny? That has always been my major complaint about the powder coating. Aside from that, I think it is an excellent coating.

I have seen a few nightmares because of people applying coatings to bearing surfaces. Do not let it happen, you will likely live to regret it. It won't take long to figure out that it was a good idea gone bad, lol.

Just out of curiosity what kinds of coatings did they use. I honestly cant find too much about refinishing metal and such.

Duracoat and a couple of other unknown finishes. With the unknowns, people bought guns that were freshly re-finished, looked great, and didn't run for shit. I have seen it on Saiga 12s (ask menace667), AR15s, and various handguns. I have even seen coatings thickly applied in the chamber and bore. The effort to keep the finish from where is doesn't need to be is miniscule compared to what it takes to remove it from those same places without screwing up the finish in surrounding areas. For heat cured finishes (powder coating, Cerakote, etc.), the rails etc. can be masked off/plugged with tin foil.

.... thank me.

LOL. It wasn't lost. Are you coming to us from deep within the bowels of a secure bunker under a nondescript government building?

Whoa. If you rearrange the letters in MARK LEVIN, you get EVLBLKWPNZ!!! Mind blown.

On topic, it seems I remember reading that parkerizing is a good base for powder coat. May be totally wrong on that.

I can't speak intelligently on that specifically, but it is a good base for most common firearm finishes.
