@45WinMag , If I paint furniture with Duracoat is it safe to cure in the oven? I don't want repercussions to the food or from the old lady!

How many weeks will she be out of the house before she comes back?


I spray-painted with Krylon Fusion in my OPEN garage (to stay out of the wind). Took the item outside to dry for a couple hours, then brought it in to dry.

My wife was gone for four days over Thanksgiving.


She came home four days after my paint job. Walked in the front door... one of the first things she said..... have you been painting?



That's without touching her oven. I'd sooner rent an extended stay suite under an assumed name, and use their oven, before I'd touch my wife's oven. :rofl:
LOL! She comes back every day! Thanks for the PDF! Haven't thought about MEK for a while!

Lauer's DuraCoat is a two-part that doesn't need to be baked. I have to bake Norrell's. A grill doesn't really work for Norrell's because you have to use exact temperatures. The oven temperature setting isn't even accurate enough, I have to use a digital thermometer. Baking too low doesn't activate the curing process, and baking too high or too long alters the color.

I only use the oven in the kitchen if I have a full day before the wife returns, and even then I have all the windows open and fans moving air. She still notices.

The process is food safe, but not wife safe.

Thanks! I'll weigh my options as it gets closer.

I just bought one of these because they are on sale, anyone have any experience with these triggers?


I got the flat one just because I want to see if I like a flat trigger.

Get a used electric smoker. You should be able to fit an entire long gun in there, disassembled.

I thought Duracoat was air-dried overnight, though? Cerekote needs an oven.

I'd been reading a couple of sources and that was what I'd gotten out of it. Figured I'd ask the people that had done it!

I bought the same one for my M&P.

It will be here Thursday.

On another forum, I've been warned I should have paid the extra $20 for a CMC (now out of stock).

Oh well... we'll see how it goes.
OTHER FORUM!? o_O WTF!

How much did you pay, and did you get an SAS?

$450 with a Sig molded holster and 3 12rd Sig mags. Non-SAS. I've got the option to go back for another at the same price and I'm considering it.

Man, I really wanted to like the SAS, and I even think the sight is really cool and workable but I don't like that it's not adjustable and the reviews on factory accuracy seem 50/50. I'm not really into the compensated barrel on something so short or a PDW, either. Though it wasn't a prime factor and I could have trained around it, I also kept going for that slide release (I know it's just a stop) with my thumb out of habit.

On the other hand, I REALLY like the x-ray sights on the non-SAS. They are big and fast. I wouldn't pocket carry a striker-fired semi auto without also being in a holster so the anti-snag thing, although cool looking, wasn't an issue for me.

That's a good deal, with the extra mags. Still available at that price?

Yes. Ace Hardware. I think they are franchises (mine is branded "Buck's Ace", so I don't know if the sales are the same price at all locations?

Dang... your hardware stores are badass.
They really are. We have the big box stores too, but I like Ace. It's awesome to be able to buy a Sthill chainsaw, a Sig pistol, and some particular size machine screws all in one place, while being fed free fresh popcorn and local jerky, and dealing directly with the owner's family, who have direct experience with all of it. A rare gem of a find, these days!

I'm gonna print this and take it to my local Ace. No reason at all why we can't have all that. This is Ohio....we do everything gun here...even Rural King has a great gun counter and free popcorn. ACE needs to get with it here. :)
