edited to add: If you've already contacted me about doing some Dura Coat work, then send it on. Otherwise, the shop is closed. I'm too busy right now to keep this up. I hope to resume next Spring. Thanks to everyone, I hope you're pleased with my work.

I currently have more Dura Coat http://www.lauerweaponry.com/images/duracoat_faqs.cfm than I will ever use. I really enjoy the process of refinishing weapons and don't want all this fairly expensive product to go to waste. If any of you board members have items that you would like to have DuraCoated, I'll do them for you for no charge while supplies last. Please note that I cannot receive or work on your lowers. I don't have an FFL, so I can only do uppers and accessories. Just send me an IM or email of what you have and what you want done. I just ask that you send me enough money to pay for the return shipping. This is a hobby of mine that I really enjoy and I'll be glad to help anyone out who wants it. Below is a list of colors that I have. If you want another color, you'll have to buy it and ship it to me.








Some of my projects:

Re: Free DuraCoat

GS, I don't what to say. What a guy! That's a helluva nice offer on your part! Just goes to prove what I've told my friends; "the XCR people are a great bunch of folks!"

I just ordered an M1 Garand from SOG. It should be here in the next couple of days. I was thinking that last color, Snow Gray, might look really nice on it and bring it back to it's former glory. What do you think?

When it arrives, I'll look it over, determine if it's a good candidate and maybe send it to you. Again, thanks for the very kind gesture! 8)

You're welcome. It really is enjoyable for me, and I have so much of it that it's a shame to not use it! I also bought a new compressor and HVLP sprayer, so I want to get some use out of them!
Sounds like a great project! Just drop me a note when you get the M1!

Re: Free DuraCoat

but how do we know we'll get them back
For you, the answer is simple. Don't send me anything. :)
:rofl:

Gr8, I got the Garand, but I'm debating on whether to send you the whole action or just the gas block part. I'm still researching. I may park the rest of it. I'll let you know somehting as soon as I can figure it out. Thanks again.

gr8,
I don't need the duracoat, but I've got to say that you're one great guy. As for Geseppe, I'm hoping he was just kidding. Otherwise, I hope that was his first and last post. What a jerk!

That's cool, let me know. I'll be glad to refinish anything you want. As an FYI, since I don't have an FFL, I can't receive any firearms. I can do any parts or accessories you want, but can't get the serialized parts. Also, if you want it for your parkerization, I have an entire unopened 1 gallon container of Lauer Custom Weapons Manganese Phosphate Parkerizing Solution that I'll give you to use.

After my first Dura Coat job, I went nuts buying stuff from them that I've never used.
P.S. If Badman doesn't want this parkerizing solution, It's free to the first taker.

No biggie. I don't blame people for being wary of the internets. If something looks too good to be true, it usually is, but I'm being totally earnest here. I just finished some stuff for XCR-Fin. After he gets it back, he may chime in to confirm that I'm not running some scam to steal rifle accessories :). I have the time and resources to do this for free because I bought too much of it, and hate to see it wasted. I also LOVE doing it, so it's a win-win. Now worries either way. Heck, I told a buddy of mine to buy some more guns so I can use up my DuraCoat!!!
These are my next victims:

Re: Free DuraCoat

Can you do any of the other camo patterns?
I'm not a professional refinisher, but I do pride myself in my work and consider myself to be very meticulous about it. If you have a specific pattern you're interested in, I'd be glad to talk to you about it. I've been thinking about doing a digital pattern on my new XCR.

GR8,

If you have any of the Tactical OD Green I sent you left over feel free to use it on other projects. Thanks again for the work!

Thanks man. I'm actually using it to make more of these:

The Razorback will be OD rather than black on this batch. I sent 6 of these to a friend and Razorback fan serving in the sandbox. He said he's had about 50 requests for them as most of his troops are from Arkansas, so I'm sending some more.
Edit, finished ten more mags for the Arkansas boys in the sandbox. Thanks to XCR-Finn for the OD color that I used to make the hog.

Re: Free DuraCoat

Hi Gr8,
That german olive gray looks interesting. Is that what the razorback mags are based with?
Thanks,
Stu

Yeah, I love that color too. If I don't camo it, I may do the upper of my new XCR in that color!
The razorback mags are a mixture of Flat Dark Earth and Woodland Tan.
