Just bout a P226 in 9mm and am wondering where is the best place to get it refinished. Also if anyone knows the difference between duracoat and cerakote could you explain the pro and cons between the two. I am looking at getting a two tone type finish almost like the uspsa edition p226. Any ideas and help would be awesome.



Thanks

Chris

Cerakote is a bake on polymer that requires an automotive or electrostatic sprayer. Duracoat is a laquer based paint that can be applied with an airbrush or an aerosol sprayer and requires no baking. There is also Durabake, which is similiar to Duracoat, but must be baked after spraying. I've done several paint jobs with Duracoat(pics posted in the handgun area), and I love the stuff. I know a few others who have used Duracoat and Durabake with fantastic results.

I've used DuraCoat & DuraBake....I prefer the DuraBake for the heat curing aspect of it.

But for things to big for an oven I have no problem using DuraCoat, the prep is everything though.

I'm anxious to try CeraKote myself.



This is DuraCoat,( the grip frame)













The frame on this is DuraCoat







This is DuraBake

















If you want someone else to do it for you.......

These guys have good prices and great results, they use the ceramic coatings.
