Cool......Have been wondering about the Duracoat/Cerakote "battle".It was very easy to do. I have been duracoating for 4 years or so, just started using cerakote about 3-4 months ago and I really like it. Goes on easy and looks good. I removed the old finish by blasting with aluminum oxide and then just sprayed the cerakote on. This is the air cure, trying the oven cure (have to mix with hardener like duracoat) this weekend so I will see how that turns out. I will post some pics, doing a 19 slide/barrel in the burnt bronze.
