I have seen more and more of these companies advertising to firearms owners,

http://www.hydrodipp...fles/index.html

Does this process even hold up to normal firearms abuse like say, Duracoat or molycote???

Is there even a comparison? I have seen quiet a few people putting it on their guns so I assume it doesnt start coming off with the first few rounds,
does anybody have REAL experience with this???

THANX!!!

I just read a thread on this the other day. But I can't remember what forum it was on.

From the first couple replies, reports are that it doesn't hold up to heat all that good. People recommended it for things like Glock frames and such, but not necessarily for barrels and things that get real hot. But I have no personal experience with the stuff. If I can find the thread I was reading, I'll post up a link.

No, but you can't get a snitch shanked for a dozen oranges no matter how hard you try.

I wish there was a do it yourself kit. I love the photo perfect camo dips but don't really want to ship out to have it done.
To many bad experiences with UPS has made me really avoid shipping.

Ok, it seems just keep it to the parts of the gun that dont get super hot??

I wonder if it "peels off" like say rubber latex?
