Hello, does anybody know if this is plasti dipped or how did they

Hydro dip for sure. They turn out too slick for my liking but patterns come out sweet.

I don't plan on holstering my gun a lot and if it wore some, I don't mind that look. As long as it doesn't peel off just from shooting it often. Its going to be a hunting gun in a holster but I don't plan on doing classes with it.

Usually the commercially done jobs will clear coat the dip for durability.

No idea, just was letting you know how I think it could be done outside of hydro dip.

If you want it to hold up find a place that can do hydrodipping and clearcoat cerakoting over the top of it. I would also do any stippling ahead of time.

If you want to camouflage a gun you should make it look like a cell phone.
