Duracoating CZ-82

I'm considering putting a Duracoat finish on my CZ-82. It is my first time refinishing any firearm and first time using Duracoat. Any tips, cautions, or experiences are greatly welcomed.

Not that it is needed, but I prefer to parkerize the gun first before duracoat. It is easy process and will make the finish much more durable than straight up duracoat.

You might want to do some research on taking those things apart. Apparently they have far more components that other pistols in their size class. There are also some parts difficult to fit back in once they're out.

All the Best,

Awesome, I'll definitely look into Parkerizing it prior to the Duracoat. I also read that one may either bake the Duracoat on at 110˚ or leave it to dry overnight. Does the curing time still take weeks after the baking process, or is it just regarding the overnight drying process?
