I’m often asked about the durability of Cerakote vs Dura-Coat. I only have experience with Dura-Coat from customers who have either applied it themselves or have had it done somewhere. What I have seen with it isn’t good. I can only give my opinion without being able to verify that it was applied and cured correctly. This lower receiver looked like this after less than 10 minutes in my initial degreasing tank which is a 50/50 mix of water and a name brand degreaser. I would hate to see what an actual gun solvent would do to the stuff!!
