There's not one paint we could point to the would be the undisputed best. Here at Spec. Ops. we use Dura-Coat finishes. There are several finishes like Dura-Coat out there that perform similarly. However, most of these finishes require sandblasting as a preparation and also require baking after you've applied the finish. Most of these thin, durable finishes are two part paints. Because of the factors mentioned above, these finishes are difficult to apply at home but not impossible. There are other types out there, such as ceramic finishes, that come well endorsed. These finishes don't work well on plastic however. I haven't mentioned all available options, but this is a start.

Paint is relative to what you are looking for. If you want durability, reliability, and a great color selection DuraCoat is the best stuff I've found so far.

Krylon Camoflage paint has worked so far for me. But now, that you menton it, we actually do do sandblasting, and have the system for it out in our garage. We also have an oven in our kitchen, maybe I'll be repainting my gun soon....

Baking the metal parts only ofcourse, allows the paint to harden even more. Thus creating a tougher surface.

I personally would stay with Duracoat because of its abilities...... afterall Duracoat was originally designed to withstand the rigors placed upon actual firearms.

I have been painting with DuraCoat for a few years now and I'll admit, it's kind of a pain to work with. Its not a type of paint you can just slather on during a Friday night and play with the next day expecting to have great results. You really have to take your time with prepping, painting, and camouflaging. Some guns have taken me weeks of work to complete. I know there are allot of "do it yourselfers" out there and I would like to give you guys some sound advice. DO NOT CUT CORNERS! Your prep will be equal to your overall durability of the paint job, take your time camouflaging, paint in a warm place, and follow every instruction DuraCoat gives. If you can do this you can have a beautiful paint job that will last years. And if your not up to the challenge thats what I'm here for and I guaranty that your results will be of professional quality.
