    No my good friend does duracoating on the side. He's really good. But I was just going to do regular paint figuring it wouldn't last very long either. But I didn't think about it gumming up the action so ill probably go the diuracoat route now.

  3. Can you paint a rifle bolt?

    You guys think I would benefit from spending the extra $3 on the self lubricating duracoat?

    Never heard of or tried it but if it works as advertised and doesn't go on too thick it couldn't hurt.

    I would use cerakote. Won't chip away as easy or get into the action.

    Why not do your own custom job? You can have 25 guys painting their rifles, only colors available are coyote tan and black and not one rifle looks the same as another.

    You could always have a gun smith cerakote the bolt for you. That way if it does impede the function of the rifle, then he is to blame and he will fix it. Also, doing that little work shouldn't cost that much.

    What do you mean why not do my own custom job? I'm pretty sure without painting the bolt my rifle right now is one of the most custom/unique looking Remington 700 SPS Tacticals out there.

    And does cerakote apply the same way as duracoat? Cause if it does I could just order it and get my buddy to do it for me.

    And do they have non-reflective colors? I've done the rest of the rifle in duracoat's ultra flat non-reflective colors.
