View Full Version : Spray Can your rifle?

I was debating having one of my ARs duracoated, but It was built cheap and to be beat up so it will cost almost half of what the rifle cost to duracoat so I was debating Krylon Camo spray paint. Iv used it for one of my mosins but the barrel doesn't get nearly as hot as my AR thin contour 16" barrel does after a day of shooting.

Has anybody rattle-canned there ARs and if so how did it hold up? Mainly the barrel. I assume it will chip and what not but im more worried about the barrel getting sticky.
Pics would be great too. Thanks

I haven't had a problem and I have got my barrel pretty hot. If it burns off no big. It will get scratched off.

Worried about high temperature of the barrel to ruin a "budget el-cheapo" aerosol can paint job? You can try some BBQ paint from Rustoleum. It should handle temp of your barrel.
