Of course there is nothing that is 100% wear-proof, but with a little patience and care most applications (park/coat/isonite) won't wear as much.

When we do "thermal coatings" (ceramic/moly/teflon) we blast the surfaces with the prescribed media, then hit them with acetone to remove any residue. The parts are then heated to a specific temp (based on ambient temps and material) and coated while still warm. After that we heat treat them for X amount of time to guarantee absolute adhesion.

Even with the so-called "ambient cure" finishes we bake them at low temps to guarantee a solid finish before allowing them to "set up" for the allocated time.
My guy bakes them at the Duracoat prescribed temps and also blasts and cleanses them prior to spraying it on.

I saw you mention that in your earlier post. Sounds like he's one of the better finishers. Most just spray it on and hope for the best. I love those guys!

Weekend projects

Here's the Bueller style safety installed...



And the Timney trigger installed on the receiver, with the old trigger nearby. I had to remove some wood from the stock for proper fit.

Does anyone have any experience with the Howa M1500 Axiom?



I'm thinking about picking one up. Cost out the door is a little over $850 with a Nikko Platinum 4-16X44 Scope.

I'll give you two sticks of gum and a not quite right paper clip for the scope.

Yeah, the scope is going to suck as is quite often true on package deals. My Savage .308 came with a Simmons or some such garbage and I put a Nikon on it.

The thing that interests me is the Knoxx stock. I've heard good things about them.

I lose track of all of the SW revolver numbers. Maybe it was a 15 - or a 60?? It was .38spl not .357 and originally had non-adjustable sights so whichever that was. And I think I sold this one off for about $450 as you said. The bloke I bought it from had tons into it. It was like glass. Crane ball detents, you name it. It shot wonderfully for the few years I had it. I still have another like it but not pimped out as much. Nothin shoots like a proper .38 target gun, I don't care how much you spend.

I had a blast, EG. (Ha -- pun!)

That P250 shoots REALLY smoothly (go, SIG!). It had a .40cal barrel, and I'm not partial to .40, but I'm still impressed. I bet the 9mm is sexy. I'll have to see if I can conceal it anywhere on my tiny self.

Re-finishing ideas...

A couple of ideas other than the Durocoat:

Springer Precision Ionbond

And the ceramic finish on the DW Valor looks interesting too (although I do not know if it is available for other weapons)
