I have done a few rifles and shotguns super durable. Great selection of colors! Prep is the key and follow the directions.

I have a friend who did up his AK with it, came out pretty nice I thought, after a few hundred rounds the barrel heated up and the paint kinda melted and flaked off, however he admitted he didn't sand the barrel down very well in his rush to spiff up his AK so with a better prepared surface I am thinking it would have held up better, only about the last 4 or 5 inches of barrel saw any issues, the gas tube and the rest of the barrel seemed ok to me, Syxtnyne here on the forums, he wouldn't mind a private message about it if you wanted to ask a guy with first hand experience.

here are some videos from his youtube channel:

DuraCoated AK-47 Parts - YouTube

My Fully DuraCoated AK-47 (Parkerized) - YouTube

he is located in NC so don't get scared of any bayonet lugs or whatever else you see in the video lol.

That definitely will not happen if it's properly applied.

It is thicker than cerakote but doesn't need to be oven cured.
Very durable but the key is preparation like always.
