I may have asked this before but old minds forget. What is the best coating to spray on your gun to refinish it and protect it??

I've sprayed about a dozen guns with Dura Coat and if your metal prep is what it's supposed to be it'll turn out great. It's easy to use and is a very effective coating.

ask anyone that has used both

I have used Cerakote (no thank you, runs and sags easily, too much trouble baking between coats when doing multiple colors, too chippable when done)
I have used DuraCoat (it's pretty but too thick, takes a long time to fully cure)
and I have used GunKote (the best, IME, very thin and tough once it's baked on).

Any one of them will work, but some work better than others.
