Gunkote Application

I've decided to fix and paint an old H&R 929 .22LR revolver. My plan is to parkerize the frame and parts, then paint over the parkerizing with Gunkote. I know it's recommended to blast parts to be parkerized with aluminum oxide for an even finish, but since I'm painting over the parkerizing anyway is blasting even necessary?

I also plan on painting several knives I've made, 2 10/22 recievers (which I know can't be parked), a 10/22 barrel, 2 10/22 trigger assemblies, and another pistol I'm hopefully buying. Will 8 oz of Gunkote be enough for that much painting? I'm getting 2 4oz cans of different colors.

Gunkote will adhere well to parkerizing. Just be sure to thoroughly degrease it before you spray. Apply thin coats with gunkote and bake per the instructions. I like to warm the parts before spraying.

Examine the parts immediately after they finish baking. You can touch up places you missed as long as you haven't handled them. Then re-bake the part per the directions.

8 ounces of gunkote should do all the jobs you listed.
