Dumb Idea but might be worth a shot

As I was laying in bed last night I was mulling over what kind of a paint job I should do to a 98 custom I have. It's my back up to my back up gun so it's basically a loaner but a nice gun never the less. It's got a really cool cocking system where it cocks from the back cap w/ a built in RVA, an e-trigger, a 12" Stiffy barrel, and a cyclone system.

So here is my dumb idea. A few months ago I was doing a little project with a rubber dipping used for rubberizing things like plier handles and such. It leaves a rubber film about 1/32" thick so lots of protection but what I'm really wondering is if it would significantly quite down the 98.

What do you guys think, should I dunk it and see what happens?

I've thought about it too, I just balked at the amount I'd have to buy to "dip" it. If you do it I will too.

I am curious as to how that will affect the marker. My main concern is will the coating interfere with the internals cycle rate?

Then that settles it. I'm not playing PB this weekend so I'll give it a shot. I've got a 5 gallon bucket of the stuff so I'm fairly certain I can get a good dip. When I was working with the stuff before I did have some problems with it dripping off evenly so just to warn you, it's not going to be pretty. Ya know before I do this I should do a noise test on it to see what it is currently at. I think we still have a noise sensor laying around here somewhere.

As for it getting in the way of the internals, I'll be sure to seal off any of the 98's holes. I plan on removing the old stock finish, sandblasting everything, attaching the two halves together, sealing off any hole, and taking it for a dip. This should be interesting.

Sounds like a great idea. The only hang-up I have would be the dripping, as mentioned. Getting the 98 to rotate along its axis while the material setup/dried would be ideal... you don't have an old rotisserie around the shop do you :dodgy:? Looking forward to seeing the result either way.

The coating is fairly easy to sand down and I plan on sanding it anyways because of it's glossy. A rotisserie is a good idea but the dipping process requires a pre-bake and a post-bake. You take your oil free part and heat it to 300 degrees then dip it fast and then put it right back in the oven. After it bakes for about 15-20 minutes, take it out and let it cool. Thats about it.

I want to see what it looks like, and get some feedback on how well the sound reduction works.

I am curious BB...Could the application be sprayed? They spray a similar material as truck bed liners...why not this stuff?
I would think a spray application would allow you to control the thickness and prohibit runs and drip from occuring.

Just a random thought.

This seems like a really neat idea. Will you remove the internals for this process?

Or why not even do a truck bed spray application?

I saw something called plasti-dip spray a while back. I think it was in Lowe's. It is basically the same thing that BB is trying to do.

Well he did mention the fact that he already has a five gallon bucket of the plastic dip stuff...he would need to buy the bed liner.

Ya know I'm sure there is a spray application that would give me an even-ish finish but this is what I've got. Great idea though and if this had the potential of getting popular I would offer it as an alternative finish but for this project I've got a bunch of this stuff and nothing I can do with it. And this particular coating isn't suppose to be sprayed.

Good suggestion though. I should have it dipped on Sunday and I'll post pics and soon as I get it all back together.

As for the question about removing the internals, yes I'll be removing EVERYTHING. I'm sure a 300 degree bake would trash any and all plastic inside and out of the 98.
