If I strip, polish and clear coat my aluminum reciever, how long should I expect a quality clear coat to last with normal, careful use?

Depends totally on WHAT clear coat, how much you handle it, how you handle it, and the quality of preparation and application.

Lauer Duracoat makes a tough clear coating for guns in several levels of gloss to flat:

As DF said it depends on useage.
Duracoat is tough but can scratch as any applied finiish can.
I have had a Duracoat finish last about ten years now
In fact customer is looking to change color.
