Shake n Spray Duracoat Finishing Kit

Does anyone have any experience with this product? Want to duracoat the barrel on my ruger 22/45 since it got scuffed up on my last camping trip and don't want to spend alot of money since the gun itself isn't too expensive. The kit is only $30 and the video they show seems pretty legit.

I did my beater AK in black duracoat. It came out pretty nice. Just make sure to clean the parts really well before spraying.

I've done several rifle actions, and a CZ-82 in Duracoat, good stuff.
I didn't buy the kit, but the same deal- bought the Duracoat, and the Preval sprayer at the local hardware store.

The Preval is great for this type of project, run some thinner through it when you're done and you can re-use it for the next project, as it the can has enough propellant in it for several small jobs.
